Good colour. Browning round the edge. Green apples on the nose. Slightly bitter in the mouth. Probably not ancient but very old. c.1909-1917, perhaps?

Bottle was pale glass and looked to be early 20th C. The cork is branded, but the branding was too faint to read.
Very pale, cloudy, with a brown - almost green - rim. Sweet, buised apples all over the nose. Modest entry, very restrained; dried out and turning bitter. Rosemary dominates the palate. Tingling aftertaste, full of rosemary. Not dead, but desperately clinging to life. (Guessed as perhaps a Taylor 1917.) 84/100.
