1975 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 5 hours. 30% opacity, very fine sediment, warm red-brown. Warm fruit nose, strawberry. Nice smooth entry, builds to a gently spirituous finish. Sweet - oranges. Fresh mouthfeel, but syrupy nonetheless. Good stuff, but not sure this will have a better time ahead of it.

Cr75. Well, what a lovely ’75 this is. Previously it has been observed that Noval and Croft are the good seventy-fives, and it happened again. Lovely mature red, 50% opaque. Palate soft, with a hint of heat, and the same burnt sense detected in the ’63. Good length, and lovely sweetness.


† Yes, we know that 1875 was widely declared. Unless you’re going to provide bottles for an 1875 horizontal, hush.
