Only got a quick snifter at the end as I was being herded out of the door by the Rootses. Actually quite drinkable and slightly, almost imperceptibly harsher than the Panascal.
Port is basically a red drink

Final flight, no. 11. 2008 Panascal and Guimaraens served alongside, and KillerB should have been faster with his other glasses.

I found both ports very good, but couldn't find anything to tell them apart. My palate was completely wasted at this point.
