From the same batch as this bottle. Leaky and ullaged to bottom shoulder. Opened just for the fun of it and not expecting to be impressed.

T55. Golden orange. Very sweet; very over-the-hill. To taste soft, sweet, with oranges. Short. Pleasant enough, but not really port. AHB would love it (and will be sent some soon).
