A Late Bottled Vintage liquorice, with a nice texture, good balance and not too sweet, which retains a lovely freshness.

This is a really sensational port for the price. It has a lovely, sweet nose which does not contain some of the harsh or overpowering notes that can be imparted by the fortifying liquor. The ,mouth feel is silky and luxurious with flavour of chocolate and plums complimented by some floral notes.

As usual, a fine value lbv port. Staaighforward, no nonsense way to warm up on these cool fall evenings. Not the depth of vintage port but a lot cheaper. This Graham's is quite sweet (a per their house style), but not cloying. Worth chilling down a bit. Tasted Oct 2015,

A nose of blueberry, prune, and blackberry jam with some medicinal, caramel, and liquorice overtones. Decently balanced palate with some spice and dark fruit with a significant amount of alcoholic heat. Quite a bit like grapey liquefied liquorice, not really my thing
