An ‘Eights’ tasting, to be the second or fourth digit of the vintage, arranged by Tony, who provided many of the bottles including an 1867. And Alex provided Graham 1897.

?1867. Yellow-orange, 25% opaque. Nose dry, no sugar, oxidised. Taste strongly not liked.

Perhaps fermented dry before the addition of alcohol.

10% opacity butterscotch yellow, a little sediment. Faint caramel hints on the nose. Smooth entry, a bitterness but not overpowering. acidity but not out of balance. Citrus notes.

This fell apart a lot as the evening progressed.
