Something Sweet

Opened this port on friday and by yesterday it was gone... It went perfectly at the end of all meals during the weekend with some mature cheddar and stilton - yumm!

1976 Colheita, Lopez
A deep, sweet, finely matured nose with notes of hazel nuts, milk chocolate, red currants, licorice and a touch toothpaste. Very complex and fine. Very deep. Some smoky notes after a while. Very, very good.
The taste is round, full and mature with a lovely sweetness, with notes of pickled cherries, milk chocolate, pan roasted nuts and fudge. Long, balanced finish that ends semi sweet. This surprised me with its intensity and structure. Lovely.
90p   (tasted 2012/01)


  1. Och 'endast' 90 pekpinnar?! Har du några bra tips på butiker/nätbutiker med humana priser som saluför detta eller liknande?

    Stilton is the shit!

  2. Maila mig - - så ska vi nog kunna ordna något...:-)
