3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The official Odense sunny Thursday evening in June monster tasting event. 1981 vintage with a wet and pretty good looking cork. Hazy brown amber with a tiny off-white head. Complex aged aroma of cherry, raspberries, dried prunes and dates, and a faint balsamic vinegar note. Sweet and slightly tart flavour, with raspberries, dried dates and raisins. Faint cellar note, but has held up amazingly well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1984 vintage at home. It pours cloudy deep purple with a small bubbly off-white head. The nose is cherry, strawberry, jam, coconut, vanilla, wood and a hint of pure cocoa. The taste is sour dark cherry, damp wood, red grape, strawberry, plum skin, tangy jam and light lemon with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and tasty. Has aged gracefully.

Pours lovely clear brownish red with no read head. Aroma has marzipan, tart cherry, light earthy and mild citric tones. Low carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel - kinda oily too. Flavour is dry, cherries, caramel, mild marzipan, subdued tartness, mild lactic. Lots of oaky dryness. Very nice.
