I have a question, but need to prepare for it. You're going to get a picture as a clue! I'll post tomorrow afternoon if Phil hasn't already posted a question by then.

Not S. Leonardo, but it is a 40-yr old
Not Taylor 325th Anniversary Edition

It's my last bottle, though more could be acquired.

I admit that having guessed that, I wasn't sure the colour was quite right for SL - a little too red, perhaps more like a Sandeman 40yr?

Also not Sandeman, but I like your thinking. Bottled in 2007 and likely purchased in 2009. IIRC there was a buyer's op.

Not Graham.

I've only visited the property mentioned once, and it was not on one of Roy's tours.

Not Vallado.
Not Dalva.
Not Kopke.

Of the producers guessed so far, I believe that a Niepoort property is closest to the property that I visited, with a Sandeman property in second. I have never toured either the Niepoort property or the Sandeman property.

The race is on! Will I finish the bottle before TPF can guess what it is?

Luckily for TPF, I did not consume any more of it over the weekend.

Correct!

The first (and only) time I visited Noval in 2008, I didn't even know they made tawnies. I was such a n00b. Not too long after that there was a buying opportunity and I picked up about a case of the 40-yr old. This is my last bottle from that case, and it is showing beautifully for 10 years in bottle!

By the way, the hints referred to Passadouro and Seixo.
