1927 Martinez

Post by AHB » 22:40 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Deep orange amber colour but slightly hazy, 50% opaque. Oxidised nose (the bottle was mid-shoulder ullage, re-corked and with the fill level corrected with marbles). Smooth texture, slight rosemary and with a pleasant butterscotch sweetness. A nice curry leaf spiciness to the palate. Gentle sweet aftertaste of burnt sugar and creme brulee. Pleasant port. 85/100. 24-Nov-15. Drunk 1 hour.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
