Very similar in colour to the Special Reserve shown alongside. Subdued on the nose with a little black licorice and slow to deliver on the palate but patience is rewarded as this develops into an enjoyable and elegant mouthful with a good balance. Closes with a long finish that is livened up with a good dose of cracked white peppercorn. 86/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
