I've never seen "fart" used as a descriptor for port before! My note was a little more ordinary.

The cork was loose when the bottle was opened. Deep red colour, 50% opaque. Fresh pink muhroom gills on the nose, a very peculiar smell! A swirl concentrates the smell into something really quite unpleasant. So repulsive on the palate that it was spat out. Not scored. Decanted 6 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
