1960 Cockburn

Post by jdaw1 » 02:56 Wed 27 Jun 2007

Friday 16th March 2007: chez mon père, a sesquivertical of Cockburn and Taylor (paperwork). Present: JDAW MAW RAW WDBP RKA JFH MF SRG, and sort-of SVW. See review.

A vertical of Cockburn, with some matching Taylor vintages, and some mystery bottles. Having had very little experience of Cockburn, this was educational for me (I do these things for their educational merits, of course not for pleasure). The Cockburn summary: cherries. Black cherries when young; glace cherries when old.

• Cockburn “believed 1950’s†
Sold at auction as “believed 1950’s†, which — tongs — was actually 1960. Pink again: I wondered whether pink is the Cockburn colour. Medium length, soft, “slightly spicy† (RAW), and JFH mysteriously detecting “vanilla†.

Sold at auction as “Cockburn, believed 1950’s† (Bonham’s, lot 711 on 27 Sep 2005) though actually 1960 (with my hand-written cellar label).
