NV Warre Otima 10YO Tawny

Post by JacobH » 23:05 Sat 20 Jun 2020

A sample glass before the rest of the bottle became part of the first Bittall experiment.

Very light in the glass: transparent tawny in the middle, fading towards a touch of green at the rim. Gives the impression of being much older than it is. One might guess it could be a 30YO from the colour.

Very spirity on the nose and little else. In the mouth, again, a mass of alcohol. Some caramel sugars. A little astringency. Modest aftertaste.

I am afraid I was rather disappointed with this. I always thought it was one of the better 10YOs and included some quite old Ports in the blend.
