1963 Quinta do Noval

Post by jdaw1 » 23:29 Fri 25 Apr 2014

Wednesday 23rd April 2014, the day before the BFT, the day after A Flight of 1966, and the same day as a vertical of Sandeman arranged by Stevens Garnier (busy week), folks gathered in The Bung Hole for 1960 versus 1963.

25% opacity, orange brown. Nose a little stewey and musty. In the mouth, nice entry, heat builds to a very nice finish. Sweet and lovely. Incorrectly guessed to be Ni63.
