1963 Offley Boa Vista

Post by g-man » 05:11 Thu 20 Sep 2012

A favorite of mine when i don't feel like the wood of a tawny, and not the fruitiness of some other houses.

dark amber hue with hints of garnet throughout just a very slight bricking around the edges.


nose of honeyed cinnamon, dried ginseng powder and a touch of anise.
the sherry like mouthfeel follows the nose getting more of the dried root spices with a black licorice linger that rings slightly spirity.

fantastic quaffing

I just had one of those recently and was surprised by the quality and freshness of the Port. A very good deal.
