S34. Red-brown, 40% opaque. I liked the ‟much- and slow-cooked fatty beef nose Yum!” Mid-to-light weight. Very sweet, brown sugar. Mid length. Sugar, nice rounded fruitless sugar. The flavour remains for ages.

Later rich, slightly cooked sugar, long and fascinating.

I liked, and liked more than most other people.

25% opaque, deep orange with a brown hue. Treacle and floral perfume on the nose, incredibly dense and intense albeit a little smelly. Dark brown sugar on the palate, with plums and damsons; dense and full-bodied. Deep flavoured aftertaste, big and burly and with an intense finish. Very impressive port. After 5½ hours the flavours on the palate were dominated by sweet, dark sugar. 93/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
