1847 Unknown Shipper
Believed to be from the 1847 vintage due to the similarity to other bottles acquired at the same time which carried legible hand-written labels.

Deep olive brown with a green rim; hazy and opaque. Gentle nose of oranges and tamarind mixed with powerful woodsmoke. Smooth and sweet on the palate with bitters appearing mid-palate before the fresh orange acidity appears. Big and mouthfilling on the palate. 84/100. Drunk 16-Dec-15. Pop 'n' pour.

Drunk at Lunch at Otto's on Wednesday 16 December 2015.
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
