NV Offley 20yr Tawny

Post by RAYC » 20:53 Tue 25 Jun 2013

Hot and harsh on day 1, i didn't think this was up to much and forgot about it for a few days (after only the first half glass...)

Day 4 it was significantly more balanced, with good concentration, precise acidity and nice citric flavour profile. Very smooth, long finish with pronounced nuttiness. If there's a criticism, it's that there's rather too much "douro bake" for my liking.

Not a stellar example of this type - but very passable after some time to breathe. 83 on day 1, 87 day 4.
