1975 Graham

Post by uncle tom » 23:39 Sun 05 Aug 2007

I regard this bottle as a bit of a bonus..

Concerned that I was losing track over the content of my cellar, and had no proper record of levels on the 'puter, I went through my entire cellar (owc's excepted) this spring, recording levels, and giving each bottle a necktag, to identify it's case (by number) and bottle (by letter)

In the event, I found that only one bottle had gone awol - a Taylor '85 - which I think got drunk rather casually last Christmas. I also found an extra bottle - a Graham '75 - yet despite checks of invoices have no idea where it came from.

So I thought I'd drink it!

I have previously noted that G75 needs little decanter time, but this bottle is probably a tad better after 24hrs, although it is now a litle warm.

I'll return it to the cellar and re-visit tomorrow..

I had one of these earlier this week. I did not take a TN but recall that it was hot on day 1, very nice on Day 2 and fading on Day 3.

Just finishing this one off now, and agree with Derek that it now seems a little tired.

A reasonable wine, but a little too fiery - and probably on the brink of going over the hill, albeit slowly.

Score 5-4
