Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic source
2012 tasting note year

Very deep mahogany colour, still with a glint of red; rich, smoky aromas, still quite dense and showing the ripeness of the vintage, it may be the stage in the tasting but did I get a whiff of potato then candy floss? Very rich and voluptuous in style, licorice and dark chocolate, still structured and tannic but a bit course and clumsy on the finish. Very interesting wine which must have started as tannic blackstrap!

Score: 3 Stars / 4 Stars

Surprisingly deep colour, still a little hint of pink in the heart of the wine.  Very sweet aromas, smokiness, very sweet on palate.  Firmer due to hot year, rich but peppery.  Little pharmaceutical.  Light in flavour and a little short.  Interesting more than outstanding.

Darker red brown colour.  Smoky nose.  A bit tired on the palate, caramel, raisins, short marzipan finish.

1987 tasting note year

This is starting to resemble a tawny, but it is still a novelty to drink.  Light garnet-red, light-bodied, with musty cherry and nut aromas and flavours and a rather dry finish.  Fading fast.

1982 tasting note year

Due to the shortage of local brandy, Cockburn used brandy from the Azores for their '04.  Tasted twice, old but firm in 1972.  A decade later, an Army & Navy Co-Operative Society bottling:  slightly varnishy nose, brandy laid bare; medium-sweet, elegant, clean, dry finish.  Last tasted 1982.

Score: 3 Stars
