I've never seen "fart" used as a descriptor for port before! My note was a little more ordinary.

The cork was loose when the bottle was opened. Deep red colour, 50% opaque. Fresh pink muhroom gills on the nose, a very peculiar smell! A swirl concentrates the smell into something really quite unpleasant. So repulsive on the palate that it was spat out. Not scored. Decanted 6 hours.
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
