1967 Croft

This is the last bottle of several; all of which have been great fun.  It has a delicate, pale, rose petal colour.  Fresh and vibrant the first day and still going strong the second, it has a spirity nose by the third.  There are complex and mature aromas of hazelnuts, walnuts, figs and dates.  The palate is generously endowed, with gorgeously ripe summer berry fruits.  Strawberry, raspberry and amoretti biscuits pack a punch, like a creamy trifle, well soaked in brandy.  Bizarrely, there's a sensation of Cola Cubes on the finish.  Not the most subtle of mature vintage Ports but I enjoy the way this old bottle still packs a punch.
