1940 Souza Guedes colheita

Post by jdaw1 » 22:44 Thu 28 Dec 2017

Some of the usual suspects gathered at the White Horse in Newport, Essex for the traditional Port Forum Christmas gathering to which were brought the traditional ‘Unknown shippers and their peculiar friends’. Delights of the evening included the very fine fillet steaks, the sparkling company of Jo (pub manager), Mel (on duty for the evening) and Jane the chef.

60% opaque with a caramel nose...quite a harsh entry and quite acidic...not entirely pleasant but finish was smooth with a hint of mint and varnish which mellowed in time.

An odd tasting old tawny; drinkable but not enjoyed.
rating: ok
