Dark orange, looking rather mature. Offensively smelly on the nose, smells stewed or baked. Thick texture, with coffee and burnt orange on the tongue before a very unpleasant rubbery mid-palate - almost like licking an elastic band. Rubber dominates the aftertaste and finish. Very unpleasant - but clearly a bottle not cared for. Not rated.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
