1991 Krohn

Post by RonnieRoots » 09:03 Thu 21 Jun 2007

Tasted April 2006:
I've tasted the 1997 and 1995 before and quite liked them. Considering the fact that these porst usually cost little over ┚¬20,- they are nice drinkers for weekdays.

This 1991 was poured from a half bottle (bottled 1994!) and was clearly not up to the 1995 and 1997.

Very sweet nose with some blackberries and chocolate. Alcoholic. Glycerol like and very straightforward palate. Some berries, cherries and chocolate and a green bitter finish. The mouthfeel is much too thick for the flavours, which makes the port cloying and tiresome. A simple port, and enjoyable to some extend, but after one glass I had a sudden urge for a beer... 82 points.
