1985 Dows

Post by g-man » 23:43 Sun 15 May 2011

Tasting at Graham's lodge on May 11th, 2011

Nice,

I think the bottle at the NY dow vertical tasting was flawed after having one at the Graham's lodge.

Dark red with some purple still left int he color.

Peppermint and wet tobacco on the nose that sneaks in some black fruit.

Dark fruit, blackberries backed with a full but tannicy bodied that doesn't seem to let up finishing with dark chocolate and tannins.

A powerhouse still.
