NV Cockburn 20y old Tawny

Post by Axel P » 15:58 Tue 19 Aug 2008

Though identical in colour and structure the 20y old Tawny of Cockburn's is of totally different caliber:

A complex nose, showing Nuts, dates and dry fruits. Alcoholic, some decent acidity. Mouthfilling with a good depth and Nuts and Dates present. A medium long well structured aftertaste. Nice. 17
