Bottled 1965. Bronzed red colour, 30% opaque. Sweet red licorice strings on the nose, with candied cherry and a touch of compost. A little hollow on entry with sweetened rhubarb on the mid-palate. Mouthfilling rhubarb and rose petals on the late palate leads nicely to a big rhubarb and Turkish Delight finish that is slightly bitter but quite delicious. Served blind. 88/100.
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
