35 year old Port and a crystal decanter

Now this is not the sort of thing that happens every day in this household, but courtesy of dad we have a bottle of Dow’s vintage port – commenced in 1980, bottled 1982.  A quick search online confirmed that decanting would be necessary, so last night I did it, putting nearly all of the bottle into a decanter mother left me in 1990, but I only brought home after dad died this year.  That which would not fit the decanter was shared with Jackie, and it is rich, delicious and smooth with considerable alcoholic oomph.
