1977 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. 35% opacity, cloudiness. Red-brown-orange. Strange nose, slightly dusty musty, but then prunes behind that. Bit spirituous in the mouth and quite dry. Not on the best form this particular bottle.

Cr77. Cloudy red, 40% opaque. Not quite right, but nor was it quite wrong. A burnt sensation, though slightly different to that of the ’63 and ’75. Hot, mid weight, and slightly acrid. Hmm.
