1963 Sandeman

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.

S63, brought by RAYC. Red-brown, 40% opaque. Heat, then strawberry. Mid-weight. I thought somewhat burnt.

Mature red colour with a light core and an orange rim. Slightly smelly on the nose, with a bit of bottle stink. Bland entry, surprisingly neutral. Lots of tannin but little fruit on the palate, with some of the stink coming through on the flavours. Hot aftertaste, with a dry and tannic finish. Not showing this wine at its best. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
