1960 Taylor

Post by djewesbury » 15:41 Tue 12 Nov 2013

The night after the Niepoort tasting with Nick Delaforce, friends old and new met with Nick to drink some bottles that they brought. The venue was the Morning Star pub, Pottinger's Entry, Belfast, who found us about 80 glasses and served us with fine steaks.

Re: 1960 Taylor (low fill)

Brought by Justin K as an experiment. The lowest fill in a mixed, unknown lot purchased at Adam's Irish Auctions, Christmas 2012.

Decanted around 1pm.

This was orange brown, about 40%. Julian maintained that this was lighter than the high-fill T60 from the same batch, but I wasn't sure. It had an earthy nose, also reminiscent of very heavy fruit cake: Christmas or wedding cake. In the mouth it was thin.

T60 (low fill). Cloudy orange-brown, 20% opaque. Nose seemed wrong; I wondered whether infected. taste had sweetness behind the stink.

Later the stink had gone: sweet, light, pleasant.
