G42, decanted 4pm. Orange, 30% opaque. Nose had orange, spirit, milk. Taste starts with that same orange, then heat that fades. There is an orange and milk-chocolate sensation Terry’s Chocolate Orange (at least, the York-made version). Very long, the sweetness persisting to the end. I thought this good port, but not great (unlike my one previous G42). Others thought great.

this question was not very clever. due to war time, it might be sure, that this was an oport bottling. Am I right, you don´t need to reply.

Light brown and clear. Cinnamon bouquet. Palate of brown spices, walnut with almost integrated alcohol on the finish. Excellent.

Light in colour, the colour of burnt sugar, 10% opaque. Asian spices on the nose, lots of lemon grass and lime. Smooth texture on entry, with a slow developing richness that brings a delicious elegance of toasted orange and brown sugar. Hot and fiery aftertaste, with a long finish of heat and burnt sugar. 90/100
