1977 Graham

Post by djewesbury » 19:34 Tue 19 Mar 2013

Have heard some strange and quite contradictory things about this so was curious..
Decanted about 6-12 hours, drunk on the evening of Monday 18th March with friends at home. Tawny to very pale ruby colour, 60-70% opaque. Quite light bodied to the eye, not very leggy. Clear on the rim.
Aroma: Leather, vanilla, raisins, spice, dark chocolate fruitiness (berries), butterscotch, wood, leaf mould (but in a rich, warm, tramping-in-the-forest way, rather than a strange, dusty, bits-of-twig-in-my-nose way).
Rich and smooth, coating the top of the tongue.
Good tannic tightness, some heat.
Sweetness and some heat on the finish (which wasn't very long).
Today, I'm remembering a quite distinct chocolate character about this port. Still a couple of bottles of this so will be interested to see how different / similar they are.. when opened..
