Mature red appearance, 90% opaque and a browning rim. Burnt rubber on the nose, a little unpleasant. Rubbery flavours on impact, hot and with burnt match flavours. Hot aftertaste and a burnt match finish that lingers for some time. Sadly this is a spoiled bottle. Served blind this was guessed to be Cockburn 1983. 78/100. Decanted 5½ hours.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

Cr60. An odd taste, in a big and full dark-fruited VP which had heat mid-palate.
