Maple candy! Not cloying at all. Hits hard after breathing for 2hrs with all the salted roasted pecans.

Best Port sampled in Porto so far. Barreled in 1967, bottled 2016 and quite amazing. Raisins and caramel throughout, honey velvet mouthfeel with a lingering finish that lasted and evolved for minutes after each sip. A treat and honor to be able to taste this one!

Very cool! Alcohol hits the nostrils in a negative fashion initially but once settled down (and brought down on temperature), it blossoms. Aged fudge, honey, molasses and candied dark fruits intermingle with dried figs, white raisins and dates; nuttiness too. Lots going on, but lacks subtlety considering its age.

Beautiful jammy port. Paired with 3 kinds of cheddar and complemented beautifully. Later, paired with chocolatey Pots de Creme. Amazing!

Dessert with a 67 port as a final celebration for my parents 50th anniversary year. Even though the port says “very old”, my parents don’t seem old at all! Lots of lovely caramel, butterscotch, and nutty notes. Paired beautifully with a maple-bacon bread pudding.
