Sandeman – 20 Year Old Tawny Port

GS6A7043

I bought this 20 year old tawny port at the Bilka supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 25 Euro for a 750 ml bottle.

GS6A7044

Clear orange in the colour and with thin and watery curtains on the glass.

Heavy aroma of dried fruits, some alcohol but a fine and pure aroma.

Light bodied, refreshing and yet with dried fruits, suitable length on the after taste compromised of mature raisins, slightly spiced, some alcohol and a hint of oak.

Good tawny to the price.

Overall rating 87 / 100

Veldensteiner Weissbier Alkoholfrei

GS6A8205

Between Nurnberg and Bayreuth in Germany, the Veldensteiner brewery is located in Neuhaus down to the Pegnitz river. The brewery is named Kaiser Bräu and was founded in 1929. It is a privately owned brewery by the Laus family.

I bought this beer at the Salling store in Aarhus, Denmark at the price of 3 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0,0%.

A good looking orange going to brown unfiltered beer.

A big head with a fine top.

A dry and wheaty aroma.

Thin, flat CO2, weak wheat in the taste.

Overall rating 65 / 100

Kopke Quinta Sáo Luiz Vintage Port 1979

GS6A7140

Kopke was established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke. The company was sold to the Bohane family, by the end of the 19th century, who tried to run it from London. The distance and the two World Wars disabled the control of the Company and they decided to sell it. Quinta de S. Luiz was acquired by Kopke in 1922. In 1953 the Barros family bought the House of Kopke. In June 2006 it was sold and became a part of the SOGEVINUS Group.

I bought this 750 ml bottle at 20% at a German ebay shop at the price of 59 Euro.
