1955 Croft

Post by jdaw1 » 15:39 Wed 29 Oct 2014

On Wednesday 29th October 2014 some obvious suspects (JDAW, DRT, MPM, THRA, IDJ, BMHR, RLC) gathered to test the Board Room in Davy’s at Plantation Place (Mincing Lane EC3R 7BD, +44 20 7621 9878, streetmap.co.uk, maps.google.co.uk, bing.com).

Recalling that we held a small vertical of Croft at The Bung Hole on Monday 16th January 2012, originally for the purpose of testing the then-new location (planning and arrangements, review of the evening as a whole), this Croft theme was repeated.

Decanted 3 hours. 30% opacity, wonderful rich red colour, super clear. Clean, menthol nose, rich and sugary. Smooth entry, then some heat builds. Nicely balanced.

Cr55. Lovely red, 40% opaque. Early palate showing lots of structure, especially acidity. An hour later this was a lovely port, smoothly textured, a distinctive burnt sense in nose and palate, and red fruits.
