On Monday 19th January 2015 we gathered in the Red Room of the Boot and Flogger to drink some Fonseca, including a bottle that had been drawn from an imperial on Saturday 17th (discussion).

This bottle was drawn from team stock donated to :tpf: by Stephen Eggis following his conversion to Teetotalism.

Thank you Stephen.

Stored in a flat in Battersea since being shipped to the UK. Deep red with a rose coloured rim, almost opaque. Little on the nose at first, then some faint raisin and rose hip. Mature fruit at first, then sweet and pleasant fruit. Quite punchy on the palate - delicious. Sweet raisiny finish. Lovely port, more evolved and softer than the other bottle of Fonseca 1992 shown alongside. 89/100. Decanted 27 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
