Bought 1986 at the duty free shop at Heathrow. Perfectly stored.
I was camping yesterday and my host, who has a house nearby was asked for a decent bottle of port and showed up with this one. Although I do not like the 75s this one was a marvellous example. Very clear colour, brown hints. Nose strong with different berries and a coffee-taste (I get to this one later...). In the mouth this wine was definitely the strongest 75 I have ever tasted, though I had the Grahams 75 in January this year. Strong with many different notes: spicy, fruity (rasberries) and a good accompanying alcoholic note. A middleweight aftertaste completed this surprisingly good impression of a 75 Vintage Port.
P.S.: As the question came out of the blue, we had to work around some things. As we were in possesion of a corkscrew this one was not too tough, but anything close to a decanter was missing. We used an coffee pot and allowed a decanting time of about 3 hours, so that might be the source of the coffee-nose.
