Can’t disagree with DRT, though I didn’t really mind the fact that it was very oxidised and thought the heat was less of an issue. If you don’t mind that sort of Port, then it was a perfectly acceptable quaffer.DRT wrote:Orange colour. Not much on the nose. In the mouth very oxidised, hot and completely shot!

Very, very light in colour, a golden orange with no hint of any red. A very faint nose of sour kumquat. Sweet, clover honey in the mouth, with some sweet grapefruit and lime providing an acidic backbone. A pleasant aftertaste, quite big and tingling on the edges of the tongue; long and pleasant. Overall, this is aged and frail; very tertiary and far more aged than the previous bottle drunk about a year ago. 83/100. Drunk 26 August 2009.
