1935 Calem

Post by jdaw1 » 22:45 Mon 07 Oct 2013

With Andy Velebil visiting from California, it would have been rude not to. So we did, in The Bung Hole, on Tuesday 8th October 2013.

Cá35. Very mucky presentation, orange-brown and cloudy. Nose lightly madeirised. But the taste had heat, citrus, and a honey, somewhere between a runny and a set honey. Thank you Tom.

Very murky, with a slight yellow edge to the rim. Gentle toffee on the nose, nicely spiced like mulled wine. Soft toffee and honey on the palate, with a very pleasant range of flavours. Gentle cinder-toffee finish with good acidity. Plenty of sweeteness and sugar. Nice and refined. 86/100.
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
