1963 Warre

Post by jdaw1 » 19:50 Thu 03 May 2012

On Wednesday 2nd May 2012 Johnny Symington joined some regulars at The Bung Hole” , partly to show off the Graham 1952 Single Harvest Tawny. All this after a day spent at The Big Fortified Tasting.

W63, brought by PW. Red-brown, 40% opaque. Nose had lots of smoky cedar notes. Palate also had cedar, some heat, good sweetness. But slightly dried out.

Very mildly corked nose, lively and spicy underneath the flatness. Lots of caramel and gentle fruit; very spicy palate. Spicy, rather than fiery aftertaste and a long, enjoyable finish. 88/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
