Some of the usual suspects gathered at the White Horse in Newport, Essex for the traditional Port Forum Christmas gathering to which were brought the traditional ‘Unknown shippers and their peculiar friends’. Delights of the evening included the very fine fillet steaks, the sparkling company of Jo (pub manager), Mel (on duty for the evening) and Jane the chef.

Mature red-brown colour, 40% opaque. Rather smelly nose, weevil spoiling any fruit. What little flavour there is on the palate is sour and spoiled, full of the taste that is beginning to signify damage by weevil. Some heat on the aftertaste, which is very short. Clearly a spoiled bottle. NR 21-Dec-17. Decanted 3½ hours.

Majorly faulty bottle; barely drinkable; a shame as a lovely full spicy port underneath.
