1977 Sandeman

Post by g-man » 05:42 Tue 10 Apr 2012

Dusty nose when first opened i thoguht it was flawed so didn't drink any more so the decanter got sealed for the next day.

t+24

The dustiness blew off after 30 more minutes in air.

Sour cherry liquor on the nose with something more vibrant reminds me muhc like a red currant with a hint of cinnamon spices.

Coating but thinning body that over powers iwth spirits and black licorice with a strange after taste of mud followed very quickly by a strong spirit burn you find in some cheap irish whiskey. There's a lingering bitter licorice taste that stays in the mouth.

I'm hoping it's the bottle or lack of air time.

80-83.
