F66, slightly cloudy, dark red, 50% opaque. Good weight to nose, though details unrecorded. To taste lots of heat, bright and sharp, almost giving the senasation of being effervescent. Slightly dry.

Peatling & Cawdron bottled. Cloudy, difficult to judge opacity. Closed on the nose, showing very little. A touch bland on entry, showing nothing much more than syrup but grows nicely on the palate. Tannins show in the palate as slight dryness mixed in with the gentle red jelly beanflavours. A slightly hollow aftertaste followed by a fabulous long and lingering floral and coffee finish. Very lovely, but loses out to the competition. 91/100.
