1994 Gould Campbell

Post by djewesbury » 13:58 Sat 12 Apr 2014

After the NIWSI tasting of wood-aged ports, some friends and their friends gathered around one table with some bottles decanted earlier that day:

Excellent fun, some of the ports were a little reluctant to come out to play but nonetheless much enjoyment had. Unfortunately I lost Justin K's decanting funnel in the Gents of the Belfast School of Art's library. The librarian thought it was one of the best lost property enquiries but regretted that it had not turned up. was a half-bottle of Ni97 which remained from a few bought a couple of years ago. The others had generally been OK but this one looked fishy.

Decanted about 8.15 am, therefore 14 hours.

This was about 75%, slightly bricking ruby. It had black treacle and caramel in the nose, with a lovely note of toast. In the mouth it was tight, with tea to begin with. Later in the evening, this grew, so that spicy fruits were revealed and a finish of fresh tea. This was pleasant, without being great.

85% opacity, dark, dark red. Nose a little stewey, behind which some spice, pepper. Very fruity in the mouth, plums, finish full of tannin

+1hr, caramel flavours appearing. enjoyed this, nothing spectacular, but it may have more to give in time.
