1970 Croft

Post by DRT » 19:48 Tue 17 May 2011

Consumed at the Crusting Pipe on 16 May 2011.

Organisation thread.
Review thread.
Croft 1970 (JDAW)
Smith Woodhouse Madalena 1988 (DRT)
Quevedo 20 Year Tawny (OJMQ)
Fonseca 1985 (CMAG)
Croft 1963 (RAYC)
Cockburn 1970 (THRA)
Gould Campbell 1977 (RAYC)
Taylor 1980 (Team)

Donated by JDAW via the THRA Adoption Society: Spirity nose. Beautiful mature red colour with a lovely thick texture and quite dry on the palate. Long finish of boiled sweets. I guessed Dow 1966.
