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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
