Mature red appearance, 90% opaque and a browning rim. Burnt rubber on the nose, a little unpleasant. Rubbery flavours on impact, hot and with burnt match flavours. Hot aftertaste and a burnt match finish that lingers for some time. Sadly this is a spoiled bottle. Served blind this was guessed to be Cockburn 1983. 78/100. Decanted 5½ hours.
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
