1950 Cockburn

Post by g-man » 17:55 Mon 27 Jun 2016

Popped and poured

Brick ruby red, clear throughout.

Nose of dusty cinnamon with a hint of raw green strawberries.
Thin on the mouthfeel, simple and sweet. Was decided that it'd be best to let this air out.

4 hours later in open decanter.

The nose opened up to some grassy plains with hints of earth and earthen spices like cinnamon and cumin.
What a difference 4 hours makes, the mouthfeel really fleshed out integrating better with the spirits. Notes of cranberry lollipops, allspice, ginger mashed with a green strawberry. What a fun port!

92-93 - could have used a lusher body to make it more special.
