Santelmo Tawny, costing a mere €4.69 from Lidl.

The colour was astonishingly bright red, but nosing of sugar and nothing else. To taste fake sugar then bitterness. Not good.

From Lidl. Mid red colour, 30% opaque. Plastic dominated nose, with some stewed redcurrants. Sweet, artificial impact on the palate, then burning acidity. Waxy and harsh on the long finish. This almost tastes like it's been blended from cheap brandy and fruit concentrate. 66/100.
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
