NV Dow's 20 yr old tawny

Dow's 20 yr old tawny :

First time I taste this Port. Amber tawny color with a slight hint of ruby. The nose is opening nicely on orange peal liquor, toffey and dried figs flavours. On the palate, not too sweet, the acidity is sharp, nice smooth mid palate on orange peal liquor, grilled nuts, dried fruits and a long finale on caramel and that orange liquor flavours that is really dominant and enjoyable in this port. I'd say that it has the Dow's style having this dryer style and showing some tannins even on the finale. 16.5/20 Might get better with time, the nose could be fuller for this quality of port.
