Deeper in colour than the 1966 shown alongside, colour holding into the rim. Very closed on the nose, less developed than the 1966, but continued swirling coaxes out an attractive Christmas mincemeat. Smooth in texture, sweet in impact and with some tannins still in the palate. Slightly simple aftertaste, long duration at a low level. A decent port, at an enjoyable stage of its evolution. 88/100. Drunk 13 Nov 2009.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

S67: darker than that later revealed to be the S66, and more nose though I failed to record what. Nonetheless, even lighter than the light S66. Like its sibling, mint appeared later.
