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 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
