Tasted at Axel's Cockburn tasting in Leverkusen:

copper red, does not smell of much, but reminds me somehow of a pine forest, very light in the mouth with a little bit of acidity, short finish, given the bad reputation of the vintage this port was a pleasant surprise, it was among my three choices for WOTN.

I am slightly astounded. I have never drunk much '75, I rather think that a '75 Cockburn might be the very thing. Could well suit the vintage. Much like the '67 which I adore.
