Bottled by Thomas Peatling of Bury St Edmunds. Deep red, 90% opaque. Rich, attractive and very fruit driven on the nose. Blanced and elegant entry, dry and tanninc on the mid-palate, but this builds to a great crescendo on the late palate. Huge aftertaste, then a massive finish that is softly tannic and with a big burst of floral lavendar. Superb.

Guessed to be:
Taylor, Taylor 1966, Cockburn 1960, Taylor 1960, Fonseca 1955, Fonseca, Taylor 1955, Noval 1955. 96/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

T27. Dark red, 70% opaque. Taste big luscious red fruit. Fonseca-red fruit. Huge. Most enormous T27 ever tasted by me. WOTN (presumably with the S22).
