On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

Pale red centre, paler rim. Burnt matches on the nose, interesting and perhaps mildly attractive. The sulphurous tone plus an oxidised element dominates the palate. Dry tannins are almost hidden on the palate, swamped by a bit of red jelly. The match flavours run through the aftertaste and finish. Pity this is flawed. Not rated.

Stink on nose - burnt rubber but minty / menthol /grassy underneath.

Lightish and sugary - a bit of a mess without actually being unpleasant.
