1977 Fonseca

Post by g-man » 02:08 Sun 25 Nov 2012

Josh mentioned it has been decanted over a day

dark orange and amber in color showing signs of age

nose of rhubarb, anise and some kind of root vegetable but with a nice honeyedish touch.

flavors are definitely better. Light lithe, sweet and touch watery. Orange zest with light burnt brown sugar rather short finish. This one has seen better days

86-88.

Chalk it up to bottle variation
