Shockingly good. Not expecting much due to the producer, but this was ripping.

I understand that the "Late Bottled Vintage" is more prestigious than the "Tawny", however I didn't truly enjoy this Port. In my opinion there was an odd smell of salted anchovy. In the mouth it was pleasant, but not elegant.
