Burnt ochre in colour, 50% opaque. A harsh nose, acidic and bitter but not horrific. Sweet on the palate, balanced, but rather hollow. A little gentle orange marmalade on the late palate. Big and powerful aftertaste; big finish of great length. Very fine finish. Tough to score because of the flaws on the nose and hollowness of the palate but compensated to some extent by the aftertaste and finish. 87/100.
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

Fd45. Red-brown, 50% opaque. Palate had big fruit, and toffee. Strange — with varnish. Extra-burnt caramel. DJ remarked “green bitterness”.
