Tasted over Christmas. Decanted only one hour. My notes below should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt as I had a stuffy nose, the beginning of a cold, when tasted.

Drier than most vintage ports, typically Dow. I tasted currants, fig, some cherry, menthol and some smokiness. I should have decanted this for longer, as it was much smoother and fuller the next day. Probably still not fully mature.

No score due to the afore-mentioned stuffy nose.
