Post by jdaw1 »

On Saturday 9th May 2015 we had a splendid horizontal of 1945 in The RAF Club, ably arranged by Axel Probst/WorldOfPort.de.

Pale golden red in colour, 30% opaque. Oxidised and plastic nose, rotting oranges. Sweet on the palate, some coffee but very light. Mostly brown sugar flavours - old, tired and dried out. Sweet finish of candy floss and but also with an off-putting plastic tone. 82/100.
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!

S45. Apricot colour, 20% opaque. Nose: “yuck”.

I’ve had better S545 (May 2011, Mar 2013 from Sandeman’s cellars), but it has always been light.
