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 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!
