Quevedo 30-Year-Old White: Tasting Notes

This page provides an overview of my notes on the Quevedo 30-Year-Old White. Apologies if the notes are brief (or non-existent); they are mainly recorded for my benefit with public distribution being a secondary priority!

I always enjoy hearing from other Port-drinkers. If you find these notes helpful; or find yourself violently disagreeing with me about them, please do not hesitate to contact me at: port­@­J­a­c­o­b­-­H­e­a­d­.­c­o­m­.

The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Average age: 38 to 40 years. Definitely brown in colour rather than amber. More similar to the reserve white than the 10-year-old on the nose: very reserved and with little fruit. In the mouth, the immediate hit is very austere and not to my tastes. It then opens up to lovely caramel with a very long aftertaste. But the austerity is problematic for me.

Rated*: P

* A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.
