1970 Sandeman

One of the two bottles on show was very smelly. This note is based on the good bottle.

Very pale brown, 10% opaque. Soft on the nose showing very little. Gentle and soft on entry, mostly brown sugar. Slow to develop but eventually shows a mature fruit spiciness. Neutral aftertaste but a soft length of nutskins and raisins. 87/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
