Niepoort Colheita, 1952

BOTTLED 1973

Drunk at my dear friend Pete’s stag-do. Sweet toffee, prunes and ginger cake on the nose, with honey, sticky dried fig, clove and anise. There is some chocolate on the palate with dates, more cake and then a wallop of alcohol before black treacle on the end. Structure is lovely, nearly balanced except for the alcoho 90pt (May 2016)
