1994 Tesco

Post by jdaw1 » 13:03 Sat 25 Dec 2010

1994 Tesco (Symington), posted by a kind soul in Barlborough. This one of two bottles, they being labelled flowers and stars, this being stars (presumably because the person who posted it is such a star).

Decanting started 12:50, so now at D + 10 minutes. 90% opaque, dark red. There be menthol in the nose. To taste lots of cigar and leather and wood. Something musty about it. Quite different from its long-separated brother.

More anon.

1994 Tesco (Symington), bottle labelled stars, at D + 11 hours. Dark red, 95% opaque. Nosing of dry plums. To taste initially quite sweet, then giving way to a mid-palate mustiness. The sweetness resumes late palate.

Another five years in the cellar might bring this together a bit better, but even now, fine drinking.

At d + 32 hours the nose has very strong musty smell. This this might be slightly corked. There’s something not right.
