Truly horrible.

Others thought VA. I did not - but this was close to the most disgusting port i have ever tasted.

Sb85, red-born. Initially I thought the nose ‟horrible”. But over time my opinion altered to ‟foul”. This wasn’t progress.

Bottled by Mayor Sworder. Revolting smell in the glass, presumably some form of bacterial infection giving the cloudy appearance. Not tasted.
