1965 Krohn

Post by jdaw1 » 10:30 Wed 06 Apr 2016

Within the regulation week of DRT’s 51st birthday, we (DRT, JDAW, IDJ, AHB, THRA, SCD, CPR, ARM, and TC) brought “a bottle of VP, blind or sighted” to the Boot and Flogger.

Pale rosewood in colour with an orange rim, 20% opaque. Pungent nose with lots of molasses and grapefruit. Sweet on entry with perfumed honey and a lovely elegance. Nicely balanced with a powerful acidity lying under the honey. Not overly complex but very pleasant. Honey aftertaste with a long and delicate finish. A lovely port. 87/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
