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.

According to the label, this was late bottled, although no bottling date was given. Modest orange in colour, with a hint of apple-green on the rim. Smokey nose, with lots of Lapsang Souchong tea over some gentle lychee. Soft and gentle texture, with light golden syrup wrapped around a gentle sweet and bitter marmalade. Great volume on the palate. Lovely gentle, dusty tannins sit on the palate. Lovely complex finish - sweet and orange. Very fine. 92/100.

An interesting chance to try a bit of port history's.

Smells "old" but not musty, evolved, soft and sugary on the palate and would have been slightly unremarkable but for a fantastic explosion of flavour on the long, persistent finish. Really quite remarkable.

Tawny orange, 15% opaque. In palate soft, with oranges and a hint of lavender.
