40% opacity, red-brown, yellow rim. Sweet candy and toasted marshmallow on the nose. Silky, syrupy, smooth, balanced. Oranges, great balance. Many years left in this.

Cork branded "Gould Campbell 193" so presumed to be 1934. Copper brown colour, 50% opaque. A lovely nose with gentle cinnamon and delicate caramelised fruit; very attractive nose. Gentle flavours, elegant but a little dried out with bruised bananas leading on the palate. Dry aftertaste and a lingering finish full of bitter orange oil. This is a very nice port which is drying out. 87/100. Decanted 2 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
