NV Cockburn 20YO Tawny (bottled 1997)

After the BBR Port Walk, some people still felt thirsty. We arrived at the Bung Hole in time to eat some steak burgers and open some bottles that were wrapped in tinfoil.

Bottled 1997. Brown core, cloudy and opaque. Full of bruised apples on the nose, or perhaps toffee apples. Sweet on the palate, showing gentle milky coffee. Lovely, lingering lemon acidity that balances the sweet honey and soft brown sugar. Good length. NR.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
