I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on this bottle. It's a 12 year old that has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being finished in Portuguese port casks (called pipes).

The colour is deep, dark and rich. You can see the port influence.

Nose. Orange, oak and spices.

In your mouth it is warm, silky smooth, slightly peppery, rich dark chocolate and oranges. I find the finish fairly short and sweet. This is well balanced, fruity and extremely drinkable.

Verdict. Buy it, drink it, enjoy it, don't over think it.

if you want a 62.5% cask strength port blast, try Amrut Portonova

This one reminded me of cough syrup when I tried it from their mini sampler pack. However,I remember it being better at a bar from a bottle that was half full; or was it half empty? With that said I do believe there is a lot of variation in its bottling. It may just need some time to open up.
