Sweet and firey, with a long, nutty finish.

This vintage-dated Tawny Port has a highly aromatic, complex nose that's nutty and warm with caramel and hints of orange. Lovely aroma replays on the palate, plus some honey and molasses flavours. Mouthfeel is soft. Excellent length on the warm finish. Will age for many years. Tasted May/2016.

Truly excellent value. It is hard to imagine paying such a low price for a product that has been aged for 20 years. The flavour profile is full of baking spices, caramel, tobacco and leather. the colours is a beautiful amber with hints of garnet. Fantastic value, and a real treat for those who have not tasted tawny port before.
