Ni 20Y, bottled 1975, though served blind as both ‟Moist Left” and as ‟#8”.

Cloudy mucky brown. Not a happy nose, with lots of VA. Taste hot and acidic. Not liked.

No idea what it was.

Bottled 1975. Muddy brown in colour, greening on the rim; 90% opaque. Faint nose, a little over-ripe orange and some golden syrup. Dy orange dominates the palate, with a huge dose of coffee underneath. This has a nice texture. Gentle finish of soft coffee with a long length. Fine port. 86/100. Drunk 15-Feb-13. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
