1970 Sandeman

Post by idj123 » 22:48 Sat 13 Aug 2016

Opened before watching a good night for the Brits at the Olympics. No label but Oporto bottled from the selo. Decant time 3 hrs, 50% opaque, slightly spirity at first but quickly developed into a lovely mature VP with soft red fruits and a shortish but rewarding finish. Certainly the best S70 I have had and although not top draw in terms of the 1970 canon by no means a back marker (with apologies for the sporting euphemism) :D
