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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
