1966 Fonseca

Post by jdaw1 » 16:17 Thu 19 Jul 2007

Part of a tasting of Graham 1955, Fonseca 1966, Dow 1963, Cockburn 1963, Warre 1977, and Ramos Pinto 1985 held in Boston on Saturday 14th July 2007. The tasting began at about 7pm.

Fonseca 1966
Also from the collection of Sean C., and also decanted at 13:30. Brown-red at centre, perhaps brick-red, though noticeably paler than the G55. Despite being eleven years younger, it looks half a decade older (which probably says more about the Graham). The nose revealed different things at different times to different people, I initially finding white chocolate, then MB locating—to general agreement—caramel, and SC—with MB concurring—maple. The palate was like the nose (white chocolate again for me), though with a slight roughness, which might perhaps have been imperfect decanting. UncleTomScore = 7/6.
