1920 Sandeman

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

From an ullaged bottle. Burnished gold colour, 20% opaque. Varnish on the nose, oxidised and with rosemary starting to show, growing larger with more time in the glass. Sweet brown sugar syrup on the entry, coffee on the palate. Good flavours and complexity, with the brown sugar and coffee infused with thyme. A long and distinct finish with the bitterness of burnt sugar. Some heat on the aftertaste, a good length finish that is full of dry and slightly bitter flavours. 83/100. Drunk 15-Apr-15.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

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