1935 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 12:29 Sat 02 May 2015

From an ullaged bottle. Deep honey colour, slightly cloudy. Honey and rosemary nose, a touch of orange blossom - very dusty and slightly dirty with lots of higher alcohols. Sweet and light-bodied palate, lots of orange blossom honey - elegant but very slow in delivering the power of honey and flowers. A flash of volatility on the aftertaste before the long finish of honey and cedar wood. Very oxidised, but very pleasant nevertheless. 84/100. Drunk 15-Apr-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

S35: pale brown, 15% opaque. Nose sharply acidic. Palate of vanilla and marzipan, particularly light in the mid palate, with honey at the end. Showing its age.
