C75, from THRA. Vomit orange colour. Very very tawnified, though still sweet. Dead.

Who would have thought it: a 1975 that was not good to drink? Gosh! Well I never.

Do I need to ask where it came in the ratings for WOTN?

Pale brown and cloudy, since it was not decanted. Faint figs and dates on the nose, Apple juice; spicy juniper running through a sweet bruised apple. Some heat and acidity and rather an angular structure. Hot aftertaste, followed by a brown sugar finish. Drinkable, but not fantastic by any means; I have had much better bottles than this. 80/100. Drunk 26 August 2010.
