GC77. Red-brown, 80% opaque. Nose also of coffee (like its single brother), but more softly so. To taste heat and mid-sweetness. Pleasant port, nothing wrong, but simple.

very dark red, black berry muffin aroma, a bit more restrained and closed than from single bt. Great length and after taste. good weight and structure; A great port!

From magnum. Deep red and opaque. Fresh air on the nose, but not much else. Dry and grippy mid-palate, fruit a little more subdued than the bottle sample. Hot aftertaste, dry cheek finish with concentrated dark cherry fruit. Impressive. 91/100.

My note simply says "Corked".

Others appear to have disagreed.
