1995 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

Post by ajfeather » 22:19 Wed 21 Nov 2007

Prior to settling an overwhelmingly bitter aftertaste with a kick of mint at the beginning. After a day it settles a bit, nothing on the nose, honey initially followed by the mint and bitterness and a little heat. My least favoured vintage of vesuvio.

I experienced the same when having the 95 in the vertical Vesuvio-Tasting 3 weeks ago in Berlin.

I've only tasted this once so may have to dig another bottle out to try it again seeing these comments. Interesting as my experience was very different - I commented in my notes that this was fruity but with huge tannins.
