1863 Ferreira Garrafeira

Whenever the age passed the 100 no one could say that there are no emotions in the glass:

The Ferreira 1863 is of a golden-brown colour, dusty. Massive Concentration. The nose is old—very old with some coffee that was lost a couple of decades, though still alive with an acid note. The mouth is smoother with less acidity, but fragile. The aftertaste is amazing, because there is a secondary aftertaste setting in after the first has passed, and this one is very pleasant with toffees and almonds.

Exciting for the age, but not not amazing on the palate.
