    June 8, 2021 - Retail $40. An inviting golden, amber, brown color with all kinds of aromas on the nose: candied almonds, honeyed prunes, Christmas spice, citrus notes, and just oodles upon oodles of vanilla. Mocha, vanilla, some cinnamon, that citrus and wave after wave of verve. I do not drink a ton of Port, and while I know that a 10-year tawny is a bit of an entry level effort, this is particularly compelling. Knowing that this will last for week? Well worth the tariff.

    April 10, 2021 - So many notes. So many taste buds. 2020 bottling. Young, clean complex, figs to nuts, dried to tree fruit. Not overly sweet, warm, inviting I would say.
    Much preferred to Sandeman 10 or 20 year tawnys for it's complexity.
    Tasted with Operavision free streaming Tempo ritrovato a perfect match some may say nutty, warm - have you ever seen an opera singer tap cigarette ashes into a goldfish bowl????

    February 19, 2021 - Ripe sweet, with a slightly bitter oxidized finish. Alcohol noticeable.

    February 1, 2021 - Robijnrood in het glas. Verder niet zo heel bijzonder. Klein beetje rozijnen maar verder niets. Dat was dus eenmalig.
