1978 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:29 Fri 23 May 2014

One pipe made to celebrate the birth of Christopher Sandeman.

Deep red, 90% opaque. Spicy, lively nose showing great complexity with lots of fruit and Christmas spices. Soft, sweet and rounded entry. Generous fruit with good balancing acidity and a surprising amount of tannins still giving considerable structure to the palate. Gentle fruity aftertaste but a burst of acidic heat before the dry tannins give a very long finish. 89/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
