Sandeman 1967 Vintage Port: Tasting Notes

This page provides an overview of my notes on the Sandeman 1967 Vintage Port. 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: Slightly darker than the 1966. Stylistically, quite different from the older Sandemans, but similar to those which were younger, suggesting this was the year when the house style changed. Peppermint everywhere on the nose. Some fruit in the mouth, but peppermint predominates. Very attractive.

A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: No; Possibly; or 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.
