1924 Hooper

Post by AHB » 23:37 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Late bottled, according to the label. Golden brown in colour, 10% opaque. Slightly oxidised and medicinal on the nose, Reluctant and watery on the palate, eventually showing to be soft and evolved, very tertiary and tawny. Late on the palate there was some welcome lively pepperiness and sweetness. Modest on the aftertaste, floral and gentle, but this led to a good finish of burnt sugar. Pleasant but light drinking. 85/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 5 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
