Cr55, probably decanted late afternoon. Brick red, 40% opaque. Nose of leather, some spice, and cigar tobacco, identified as El Rey del Mundo. Palate slightly dried out. Heat, lovely length, over-mature. Excellent mature port. Dried cherries.

† Given the hours invested (not spent—pah!) in the pub, and the quantity of beer consumed, the precision of this identification is utterly implausible.
