Oscar visited London, so the team sampled some VPs and some stuff described as ‟brown sticky stuff”. Some were served sighted, some were blind.

Bottled in 1979. Honey brown centre and a pale rim. Empty nose, perhaps a bit of lemon. Fresh entry, full of sweetened lemon. Massive acidity on the finish and a huge length. Very enjoyable, but a bit lacking on the nose. 87/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
