What an amazing bottle to try. Thank you very much CMAG. Somewhat musty fruit cocktail to smell. To taste, musty, with orange, bruised apple, and strong underlying grapefruit. Dry. Complex. Echoes of sherry. Very long grapefruit finish. I took a little home and and am sipping it watching a program on Napoleon, which seems appropriate. Thank you, very interesting, bringing history to life.

80% opacity, dusty mud brown, cloudy, yellow rim. Nose sharp and lively, grapefruit. Fresh citric entry, grapefruit again.

Huge thanks to Christopher for sharing this legendary port. I doubt I will ever have a chance to taste anything older than this!
