Deep orange in colour, very tawny looking. Alcohol and boiled sweets on the nose, and a swirl makes it all vanish. Sugary flavours, light brown sugar and gentle strawberry. Soft aftertaste, with a hot finish of black coffee that has a reasonable length. Lightweight port, very tertiary, one to drink up soon. 82/100. 6 hour decant.
Tawny colour, very alcoholic nose, quite unappetising. To taste very spirity, with incredibly artificial sweets, otherwise completely turned to tawny. Short finish. One to pass upon if you come across it and to drink up fast if you have it.
