    October 14, 2015 - Bottled 2011.
    My last bottle if this stuff. Sincerely speaking this is not my sort of tawny. Too much sweet, unbalanced alcohol, undelicate raisins aromas.
    Can't match cured cheese.

    Embotellada en el 2011.
    La última con este relleno. Hablando claro no es mi Oporto. Demasiado dulce, alcohol desequilibrado, aromas a uvas pasas poco refinados.
    No pudo competir con un queso curado.

    September 22, 2015 - Usually a lovely port, but this particular bottle is slightly disappointing. Rather simple and cloying, and the typical freshness that I normally love is lacking. A pity.

    February 15, 2015 - Smoother than you would expect from a 10-year. Rich creme brûlée.

    December 30, 2014 - firm to start; much better after several months in the fridge; smooth caramel/toffee/espresso

    November 15, 2014 - Pulled from a Corvine over the past 6 months or so. Consistently good, but not great. Big bites of toffee, fruit cake, burnt orange and nuttiness. Very fresh and creamy, but I'm realizing that I prefer 20 year tawnys.
