GM65. Dark red, 60% opaque. Soft texture, and a hint of heat. Middle length. A hint of mint; light-toned; slightly ethereal. Good, but not up to the standards of the ’63 and ’66.

Dark brown. Somewhat closed nose but a nice, balanced palate that was the equal best of the Malvedos ports for me along with the 87.

Very nicely matured Vintage Port with absolutely no signs of decay. Recorced by the Symingtons. My favourite Malvedos from the evening and overall to enjoy right now.

Medical advice was taken, correcting an earlier mis-understanding. Previously DRT had thought that drinking port from one’s birth year, within ±7 days of one’s birthday, protects against death in that year.

Not quite, it is actually simpler. Drinking port from one’s birth year protects against death for the following year. One has 365 days of immortality, and sometimes 366. For those who are forgetful, it might be easiest just to have some on every birthday, but more often, even if far from the relevant day, works just as well.

This is splendid news. Did the medical advice suggest that that frequent dosage would have any kind of cumulative effect, thereby extending the period of immortality?

I have a hunch that the consumption of a double magnum could perhaps add a decade to one's life. Unfortunately, the medicine does not appear to exist in that format :(

Delightful colour, fully mature; 40% opaque. A touch of alcohol on the nose, with sweet raisins. Lovely flavours on the palate. A delicious sweetness, with sweet raisins and sultanas spiced with mace. Fabulous palate. Big long finish, but very sweet. Really concentrated. 89/100.
