AHB said he could smell VA but I disagreed. Nice bright colour and weight. My notes do not describe any flavours but I remember this being the best B&I VP I have ever had.

1970 Borges & Irmão: Dominic Symington said that this would have come from Quinta do Junco, which is now owned by Taylor-Fladgate. To taste good length, with melon, and light. ‟But great length”.
