From 1/2 bottle purchased at Harrods, some guessed this was a colheita.

Not a hugely serious port, but the type of bottle that you'd be quite pleased to acquire at the airport in Oporto for the flight home.

And i'd have thought a very good pop and pour candidate, given its relative maturity.

A half bottle of DB88. Red-brown, 30% opaque. Nose of aniseed and grass/herb. The taste included a rush of mid-palate heat.

No guesses recorded.
