1965 Krohn

Post by jdaw1 »

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 Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
