1935 Taylor

Post by AHB » 11:56 Mon 28 Dec 2015

Bottled by Laings of Newcastle. A deep burnished red-mahogany; 80% opaque. A complex nose, sweet and full of black cherries with a hint of woodsmoke. Astonishing on the palate. Full and rich with deep, dark fruit, spicy cinnamon and a complex and powerful mid-palate. Concentrated dark fruit aftertaste and an amazing finish. So much better than the other bottle of Taylor 1935. 97/100.
