The second of two bottles bought from the dining room of the East India Club, who had cellared them since being shipped to the UK, to accompany dinner. Very tasty and improved considerably with the benefit of two hours in the glass, but remained more angular and minty than the first bottle. 89/100. Drunk 13-Jan-16. Decanted 2 hours.

F77, b. Hotter and mintier than the first F77, but at its core the same fullness.
