30% opacity, mature dull red centre, amber rim. Faint oranges on the nose. Smooth entry, very gentle heat mid palate, oranges - very over-ripe, burnt. Long aftertaste, lovely balance.
25% opacity, brown centre, tobacco yellow rim. Molasses and citrus fruits. Lovely rich mouthfeel, syrupy, good balance. Extracted fruit, citrus and apricot. Wonderful long aftertaste, structure still superb. Not shabby at all.
20% opacity, butterscotch, yellow rim, brown centre. Soft apricots and sweetness on the nose. Rich mouthfeel, lovely lemon/orange marmalade. Full and syrupy, fruit still in wonderful shape. Good acidity which is superbly balanced, aftertaste persists for an eon. Absolutely fabulous port.

Many thanks to Tom for supplying every bottle bar one, and thanks to Ian for the '70! WOTN was the 1910 followed by the 1924. The '66 came third only just ahead of the '54 and '70.
