1977 Croft

Post by g-man » 17:30 Sat 08 May 2010

Continuation of my bday celebration.

This was a bit of a disappointment for me as I love the croft 77.

Slightly muted nose, with some raspberries and allspice. Took alot of coaxing though to get this one out.

Very spicy black pepper and ground cardamon.
The spirits are rough with a hint of dark chocolate on the finish.

I was on the hunt for the orange zest I find in the croft and was disappointed that it wasn't there. It was a good port that night but just felt like it was missing something to make it great.
