Very port-like as expected. Lots and lots of plums, currants and dried fruits. Also pretty nutty with hazelnuts and walnuts.
Dry. The alcohol is more noticeable now. Dried citrus fruits, plums and some red berries in bitter chocolate. Becomes a bit peppery after a while.
Long. Dry and spicy. Oak, fresh menthol and currants.
Not a “real” port wine finish and that shows a bit. Intense and strong, but not that well rounded.
Score: 83 / 100
