Look: Cloudy and almost orange. Looks much more like a tawny than a VP to me.

Nose: Dying tawny. Something minty that Julian described as Spearmint. I lean more toward Eucalyptus but without the menthol or depth that Eucalyptus usually possesses.

Taste: Madeira-like, but nicely smooth. Complex flavors, but not ones I normally associate with Port

Very pale, cloudy, and even looking fragile. Nosing strongly of sugar, and mint. Glenn E. and I discussed the mint for a awhile, he seeming to prefer the description eucalyptus, but I thought mint. To taste candy-floss (unflavoured), and spearmint. Glenn E.’s ‟Complex flavours, but not ones I normally associate with Port” is entirely correct. ‟It’s life, captain. But not as we know it.”
