NV Sandeman Cask 33

Post by Axel P » 21:48 Tue 11 Nov 2014

Sandeman's celeb Port for their 225th birthday in 2015 (I very much believe that there is a word for this birthday in english, too :-))

One can get the whole story here: http://eng.sograpevinhos.com/blog/2014/ ... s-cask-33/

Transparent mid red colour with little greenish rim and a heavy center. Elegant subtile, but complex bouquet with very balanced tobacco-spice notes. On the palate Milk chocolate, a huge mix of spices, white pepper and perfectly integrated acidity. The aftertaste is simply fascinating: very, very long and very well balanced. The 131g residual sugar are absolutely not noticeable. 18+/20

Do you have any thoughts on how this compares with the other very old port currently on the market?

This is definitely not the Tributa, VV or Scion style as these are much older and much more intense in aromas.

Cask 33 is rather a Tanwy with an extremely high level of finesse.
