1927 Graham vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:17 Mon 11 Feb 2008

With thanks to Sean C. Decanted 3 hours before tasting. Brown in colour, deep centre with the sediment in the port giving opacity. Tons of stink on the nose bringing the typical black treacle but underneath a nice citrus, grapefruit peel. Very sweet into the mouth, with elegant balance. Masses of fruit left, still so very secondary and no signs of fading to tertiary life yet. Lots of toffee but less by way of stink flavours than would have been expected from the nose. The aftertaste is gentle, long and lingering. 7/7 or 93/100. Drunk 8/2/08.

What a pleasure to have the '27 Graham's (no less ... any '27) show so much life left in the bottle. A very fine hors d'oeuvres, so to speak.

Easily the best bottle of 1927 Graham I've ever tasted. Then again it was the only one. :lol:

Alas for me this was dominated by the bottle stink. Great brick-red hue, middle translucency, and good weight. Palate cleaner than nose, but—for me—overwhelmed by the stink.
