As you guys are pretty aware there are two opposing parties concerning the declaration of 1975. The one believes in solely political reasons (Revolution in Portugal), the other is convinced by the quality of the Ports often describing them as very sharp or fine VPs. The 75 Grahams can not hide its age. Very light with a fairly watery structure. The nose is dominated by alcohol with a very nice but fragile raspberry touch. The mouth is light and there is a short and alcoholic aftertaste. I never had a real strong VP from that year and do believe in political reasons.
I am also sceptical of the 1975s. When buying mixed lots I value the 1975s at £0 = $0 = Ã¢”šÂ¬0 = Ã‚Â¥0 = ₡0 = ₪0 = ₨0 = ₩0 = ₭0 = ₮0 = ₦0 = ₤0 = ₫0. I really am not a fan.
