1884 Sandeman vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:54 Sat 16 Jan 2010

Very pale, a light straw colour. Smelly on the nose, smelling very strongly of rosemary and antiseptic. Sweet in the mouth, very tertiary with dry nut-skins and showing real frailty. A sweet, light and tawny aftertaste and a good length. Very lovely and delicate. 80/100. Drunk 17 Dec 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Translucent pale orange. Nosing of soap. BMHR and SRG said ‟paraffin”. Later AHB said ‟rosemary”.

To taste: ‟awful”; ‟dead, long ago”.
