1985 Gonzalez Byass

Post by DRT » 01:38 Sun 27 Jan 2008

One of six in a 1985 Horizontal enjoyed by Simon Lisle, Conky and myself at this offline in Craster, Northumberland on 19 Jan 2008.

Derek
Light colour. Browning. Peppery nose. Thick - very sweet with liquorice and toffee. Tastes more like an aged tawny than a VP. A great functional port and the surprise of the night.

Simon
Light, medium bodied, woody. No finish. Quite hot, sticky and caramelised

Conky
Light colour, smokey nose. Smooth. Pleasantly, eh, what's the word?
