NV Quevedo 20YO Tawny

Post by DRT » 19:51 Tue 17 May 2011

Consumed at the Crusting Pipe on 16 May 2011.

Quevedo 20 Year Tawny (OJMQ)

Croft 1963 (RAYC)
Cockburn 1970 (THRA)
Gould Campbell 1977 (RAYC)
Taylor 1980 (Team)

Rich golden red colour. Very smooth with lots of acidity and nutty flavours. I guessed "Colheita from the 1970s". Oscar later revealed that the blend is 70% 1974 Colheita so I was not too disappointed with my guess.

Quevedo 20YO Tawny, from OJMQ.

Brown, hint of red, 50% opacity. ‟Tawny nose”. Medium in length, tawny. (I don’t know how to describe tawnies.)

I guessed an over-10-year Quevedo tawny. Others also a Quevedo product: ’92 colheita; 70s colheita; ’77 colheita; Madeira (!).
