Nose: Really robust port here. Sweet candy, red hots, caramel, toffee. Really reminiscent of Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond. But with port.

Taste: Thin, no heat though. Cocoa, fig, faint strawberry jam. Some caramel. Not super complex, not super robust.

Finish: Short, no heat. Port is really noticeable here. Faint bitterness.

Overall: Unique but not exciting or exceptional by any stretch. The nose and palate were pretty nice though.

Thanks for reading!
