Wine Spectator Review
Succulent and smooth, this tremendously complex tawny is layered with caramel, walnut, coffee, almond and orange peel flavors, long, elegant and spicy in the mouth. All this and wow, what a price -- this wine could double as a Best Buy.
Wine Tasting Notes
Tawny red with amber hues and dark red tints. The nose offers rich fruit nuances, ripe fruit lifts supports by coffee, chocolate, raisins and nutty aromas. This classic Australian Tawny exhibits a smooth palate and mellow with good length and a dry finish. Classic rancio characters are also evident.
Whiskers Blake Port was especially selected from premium aged tawny ports. All components were matured in small oak casks for an average of 10 years. The wines were blended to attain the classic characters and qualities of an outstanding Tawny Port.

so.... take this with a grain of salt....I purchased this because of the 94 rating.
This port is soooo sweet 94/100.
It tastes of molasses 99/100...
sorry can't taste anything else because of the molasses.... this might be good over pancakes :)
I enjoy port, and have not found another that is as consistently drinkable as Whiskers. If I was a millionaire, I would be buying 30 year old port, but since I am not, I stick with the best tawny available at a reasonable cost. I never tire of it and have tried others near the same price point. none compare to Whiskers.
