1983 Offley Boa Vista

Post by DRT » 16:56 Sun 27 Apr 2008

Decanted through unbleached coffee filter using Jdaw-supplied emergency decanting kit.

On Decanting
This has a beautiful dark ruby red colour. Much darker than the last bottle I had that came from the same source. Red berrys on the nose with a small amount of heat. Good thick tears on the glass. Nice medium weight with cherry and chocolate then quite an intense burst of heat. Long mouthwatering finish.

...more later.

I'm seating you within grasp of the Delaforce '35 on Saturday, but you'll also be able to grab a glass of the OBV '83 if you want to compare.

...back to the TN

Heavier weight with more fruit and softer, but still has a little of that burn in the middle. Very nice juice.

I'm now sipping it with some J.D.Gross Kul Kul 78% Dark Chocolate - Yummy :D
