Mahogany brown colour with a hint of red in the tone. A huge and very offputting dose of bottle stink on the nose. Soft caramel dominates the palate, mixed with a burnt sugar bitterness. Soft and sweet on the aftertaste and with a modest finish of burnt sugar and hot elastic bands. Disappointing. 80/100. 06-Nov-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
