S1873. Orange, 25% opaque. Nose very spirity, and became moe spirity with the passage of time. To taste a burst of sweet cloyingness, then very hot, but a long ending.

It is always a privilege to taste such ancient bottles, but, as drink, not liked.

Golden orange in colour, 20% opaque. Nosing of orange peel and compost. Sharp, sweet and full of orange peel on the palate. A long finish of tangy seville orange marmalade, Very intense and amazingly alive. Sadly, 5 hours later this had fallen apart in the glass. 86/100.
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
