C75. Described in the planning thread as a backup in a way that caused JDAW, erroneously, to think it another C67, and so on the placemats as such. Served blind, and actually C75. Only 25% opaque. Nose noted, with heat, citric acid, and courtesy THRA marzipan. To taste heat, too much acid, but very long. Not liked. Then revealed to be a ’75.

Decanted @4.00pm

Not great on the nose, but perfectly acceptable to drink - mature, light, some heat and citric acid but an attractive delicacy to it. Consensus around the table, apart from jdaw1, was that for the cost this offered good QPR for a casual pop and pour at home - particularly as an alternative to an LBV if you fancied something on the more mature end of the scale **+ (85 - 86)

Mature colour - strange nose - very sweet.
