this was a lightAllspice, honey and graham crackers backed by a forest floor component on the nose

delicate but backed with acidity
noticeable Cranberries backed with tannins leading to a woody cedar like finish.

not bad at all 88.

Light and feminine. This lacked the complexity or substance of the Sandeman, but didn't compensate with more fruit. Still, a good warm weather port to serve to a woman with a delicate palate.

Unpleasant and harsh nose, though it picks up chocolate later. It has more fruit than the SW84, but most notably a long tail. It's too hot. Y says it smells of paper and fruit.
