Cr 20Y tawny. ‟Diarrhoea colour, horrible”, I wrote, though less well spelt. Nose had sweetness. Taste was overwhelmed by acidity, and there was nothing to add to RLC’s ‟Shot to pieces”.
Described on the label as "Port of Great Age"; a wood aged port with a surprising amount of sediment in the bottle. Cloudy, mid-brown in colour. Gentle toffee and lime juice on the nose, slightly dirty. Dry and slightly harsh entry, with lots of acidity on the palate - but this is followed by a very pleasant sweet yellow gooseberry. The aftertaste is lovely and the finish very tasty. This was bottle number 12252. 86/100.
