25% opacity. Acidic edge to the nose. Strawberries in the mouth, an acidic freshness. Short.

Rose red with an attractive brick tone, 50% opaque. Gentle nose of spiced fruit, cinnamon and mace over redcurrant. A lovely palate full of soft golden raisins and sharp cranberries, mouthfilling but with a harshness to the late palate. Lively and hot on the aftertaste leading to a harsh, wood ash length. Pleasant port, but not great. 4 hours later in the glass this had turned cloyingly sweet and rather flat. 84/100. Decanted 3 hours.

N75. Red, 30% opaque. Very minty, and very sweet. Pleasant, but not more than that.
