1963 Graham's

Post by DRT » 02:33 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Double decanted and T-corked for 10 hours before 1st taste. Decanted very cleanly off lots of thick black crust which did not move from the side of the bottle. Absolutely no crust came through the neck! - Dark, bright ruby with a hint of brown - darkened as the night wore on. Initial taste was overwhelmed with spirit. Later, became very smooth and elegant with that classic Graham's plumy flavour. I think this would have shown better if left in a decanter open to the air rather than re-sealed.
