PostSubject: drinks for the serious drinker   Sun Dec 25, 2016 12:19 am

Mr Ciderman now we have an expert on board a serious question:

at the moment we have two bottles of tawny and don't know whether they are port of muscat.

1. Seppeltsfield - Para - Grand Tawny  OZ

2. Mc Way 10 yr old - Hardwood Grand Tawny

number 1 tasted more like a muscat to me - but I have never determined the difference between muscats and ports?

ta

ps: yes I can google but this is more fun and keeps the stats moving upwards and onwards!

Depends what grapes they used. Muscat are a variety I would think relate to muscatel. It's a bit like port but made with different grapes. I haven't seen 'tawny' applied to a muscat but 'tawny' is usually long barrel aged port as opposed to 'Ruby' ports which are more fruity and less complex.

(There does that sound professional?) yes

I've only just found this Davo!  smile    Don't know that particular one but generally speaking anything from Portugal is worth having, (unlike France and Spain- not to imply that Spain and France are rubbish - they go from brilliant to bloody awful)

Coincidentally Davo, yesterday I kicked off a Black Rock Whispering Wheat ferment should be finished in about 10 days and ready to drink in about 8 weeks.

smile Well you can drink it while it's still fizzing Davo, but a bit of time does improve most of 'em.

I seriously drink Australian Black Stump Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve.

But - from my several trips to Oz I know you keep the best stuff to yourselves - even the beers.

Fosters just doesn't do it for me.
