1960 Dow

Post by jdaw1 » 19:51 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.

D60, brought by BMHR. Red-brown, 30% opaque. Coffee in the nose. To taste bitterness early, heat mid-palate, red fruit. Great size. Me like.

Mature red colour; mature spicy cranberries on the nose. Sweet entry, gentle tobacco mixed in with soft fruit and still some soft tannins. Wonderfully mouthfilling flavour, big fruity aftertaste Still some years from maturity! 92/100.
