255 Opacity, brown-orange. Toffee on the nose. Wonderful creamy caramel smooth entry, very very gentle heat and a long long finish with toffee aftertaste. My WOTN.

GC66. Red, 40% opaque. Nose had a hint of bread, but was mostly closed. And to taste, thick and sticky. Very long. And after food, still delicious. Excellent VP.

A lovely brick-red colour, 40% opaque. Little on the nose, really rather subdued. Thick texture, clearly with a high glycerol content that is very enjoyable. On the palate there is a lovely development of powerful and concentrated bitter orange. Big palate, really intense, an intensity which leads through to the orange dominated aftertaste. The finish is long and flavoursome, full of bitter-sweet orange and grapefruit. This is a fine mature port. 91/100. Decanted 6½ hours.

Dark mid-brown, with a pink core. Menthol in the nose, but very light. This was disappointing, cardboard creeping in.. toothpaste at the finish, something synthetic.
