1963 Feist colheita

Post by jdaw1 » 06:09 Fri 04 Jan 2008

Rather cloudy. Initially nosing of artificial lemon, and very burnt, though Jeff said “grass†. Later I found aniseed—maybe Pernod. To taste sharo acidity, thought not in an off way. Jeff found “garlic curry†. Toppings-up of the glass were accompanied by a light bottle stink that blew away after twenty minutes.

My fourth favourite of the evening, which for the second-most expensive, does not speak of value.

Julian,

"sharo acidity" is a term I'm not familar with. Can you explain?

Thanks

It’s “sharp acidity†, as typed after a Colheitathon.
