Decanted in 1979. Burnished copper colour with a pale orange rim; 40% opaque. Antiseptic nose, full of iron filings and esteva. Light and smooth in texture. Unpleasant flavours, bitter and with disinfectant. Bitter aftertaste. Bitter finish. Sadly this is a bad bottle. Not rated.

This was a disappointment as I was looking forward to trying but the overwhelming taste was one of cough medicine (actifed linctus-not that I am especially expert on cough medicines!). This was the one flawed bottle on the night.
