1934 Warre

Post by AHB » 20:55 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Bottled by Whitwhams. Pale red, 30% opaque with a mature appearance. Slight varnish on the nose which initially obscured some nice rose perfume and mandarin orange. Gentle tobacco on the palate, then a nice and powerful orange like Crepe Suzette - concentrated and intense - but with an underlying layer of dirtiness or soapiness. Hot aftertaste with lots of spirit that fades to a finish of burnt toast and soap. This improved in the glass so a couple of hours later it was thicker in texture and with coffee replacing the soapiness. An hour later it was lighter, more fruity but still with a touch of dirtiness to it. 85/100. Drunk 22-Sep-14. Decanted 1 hour.
