Another trip down to Porty, this time to have an evening of 'porty' whiskies: A port cask, a Port Askaig, a Portonova, a Westport and a Port Finish! We were fully in sup-port of this venture..

Soap? Fish. Toasted marshmallows. That play dough smell that quite a few red wine finishes have. Stewed plums. Cherries. A lovely grapefruit. A wee bit minty. R Kelly.
Some random herbal liquor . Spicy mulled wine. Golden syrup. Thai curry (green). Zingy. Toothpaste enjoyment. Liquorice. Young and spicy. Quite herbal. What I remember of the taste of tarragon. Euthymol (but bad). A quick burst of caramel and then pretty sour. Sagey. Quite sour and bitter.

  Meet 81   |   An inoffensive start to the evening, nice bottle too.   (5 photos)
Sour sweets. Black pepper. Mint toffee. Hot. Bitter. Sour. Medium length, gloopy & warming. Licking mouldy wall paper. Sweeter, peppery. Oops that was meant to be finish 🙊.
Something interesting in there trying to get out. 6. A steaky peppercorn sauce ( or perhaps that's the cheese straws). Test.
