20% opacity, brown red. Seaweed nose. Quick to heat with some caramel. Really dry finish and quite spiritous.

Copper red colour, 10% opaque. Slight soapiness to the nose along with some burnt fruit. A good thick texture, bringing sourness and bitterness to the tongue. The bitterness is soapy and not pleasant . Bitter finish. Surely not a representative bottle. Not rated. Decanted 8 hours.
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

A light pink to light ochre core. This was corked to my nose and mouth.
