Df60: nosing of dark-fruit sweetness. Palate had heat, mid and late. Dark fruits, dry-ish, with plums. Might improve. Far better than the Ferreira and Cockburn; junior to the Sandeman.

Mid red, mature in colour with a light centre. Restrained, somewhat soapy nose, but a little flat. Silky texture, slightly thicker than most of the other 1960s tasted at the same event - a lovely texture. Great flavour profile with plenty of complexity. Big aftertaste and a big finish that lingers and rolls around the tongue. Very flavoursome port - shame about the nose because on the palate this puts the Sandeman to shame. 89/100.
Nice soft nose - good weight with dried fruits, a little heat in the mid-palate then a nice long finish which still has some dry tannin.
