1963 Cockburn

Post by jdaw1 » 16:18 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.

Cockburn 1963
Part of the same mixed lot as the Dow, bought 1½ years previously by jdaw1. Decanted at about 5pm. Pale, brown throughout, and slightly cloudy. To the nose brown sugar, “musty† said MB. Maybe lightly-cooked sugar. (Madeira? Oxidisation? Maybe.) The same to taste: maraschino cherry (agreeing with my opinion after the Cockburn vertical held in March 2007), and predominantly sugar. Disappointing: UncleTomScore = 4/4.
