2002 Croft LBV

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.

80% opacity, deep dark red. Nose - young, prunes, jammy, leather. In the mouth, thick, fruity and a tannic finish. Nice stuff I thought.

Cr02 LBV. No note taken, but in less good shape at 19:00. Note to self: pop-and-pour.
