On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

Bottled 1987. Honey brown in colour. Perfumed clover-honey drives a pronounced and attractive nose. Hollow entry, which resolves into a honey and lemon set of flavours; modest palate which leads to a sweet and sticky finish. Lacks balance and focus. 84/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
