1976 Graham Malvedos

On Tuesday 30th December 2014 some obvious suspects gathered in our former home, The Bung Hole, because Dr Dirk was in town.

GM76. Red-brown brick red 40% opaque. Acidic red cherry. Good size; too much acidity.

This bottle fuddled me. I thought that RAYC was bringing my FG76, and this GM76 didn’t look anything like that!

It is at least mildly interesting to me that we both find cherries in very proximate vintages: you with GM76 and me with G77. Yet acidic cherry or boiled cherry sweet is not what I first think of in relation to Graham's. I haven't combed the TNs yet to see whether there is any consistency in this so it's purely a subject of unschooled speculation at this point.

I think this may be specific to the 77, I tend to think of blacker fruits with Graham. And cherries I associate more with Sandeman.

That's really interesting Owen; the same cherry profile noticed by us all, from different bottles / vintages. Mine was also an 8 hour decant.
