The bottle was below par, so this came out to be a decent Graham (I guessed Graham '75) but not with the completeness that I would have expected from the '77.

I have had this at least twice in the past 6 months and can say with some certainty that this was a damaged bottle. The wine was cloudy and showed signs of being heat damaged. Thanks to Jacob for purchasing it specifically for the offline. It was a great shame that it didn't have the chance to show what it can be. I am sure we will visit it again one day soon :wink:
