A lot of varnish on the nose. A hint of heat along with the strawberries in the palate. Long warm finish. I got it as Graham but thought it much older than its age - 1948?

30% opacity, rich amber orange, clear. Cedar on the nose. Rich, syrupy mouthfeel, cedar notes, extracted orange, some spice in the finish.
A bit of an unusual G70 - if I hadn't opened it myself, I would not have guessed Graham. This bottle seems to have aged a bit more than normal. Improved considerably in the glass during the evening, so maybe a longer decant next time for the rest of this case.
