Bottled in 1945 to celebrate the centenary of Andresen. Golden straw colour, slightly cloudy; 30% opaque. Sour lime and green sugar cane on the nose, rather harsh. Coffee on the early palate and through to the mid palate. A nice acidity keeps the port fresh on the palate and gives a good length. A spicy aftertaste, then a rather sticky golden syrup finish with lots of burnt coffee. 87/100.
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

Andresen 10yo tawny (bottled 1945), but presented blind. Tawny colour, 30% opaque. Palate very hot, smooth and very tawny. The heat having passed, charming and pleasant.

Mis-guessed to be a 30Y tawny.
