A bitter entry. Good weight but a very hollow finish. I have had this once before and it was much, much better than this bottle.

I am hoping that someone can remember what was branded on the cork from this bottle. It was not recognisable as anything to do with Royal Oporto.

I think the cork branding was "Amandi" or similar. Dominic was not convinced that the last letter was an "i" though and did not recognise it as a word.
