Just looking up tokay now - looks good. Not as strong as a port and looks to be white grapes. I'm not a great believer in all of the mysticism that surrounds different drinks and the severity of hangover they give you, I find if I get pissed on it, I'm getting a hangover off it, but I will say that red wine and port seem to give me a spectacularly splitting headache.I like Sandeman Porto.
If you like port, why not try Tokay next, it's a famous Hungarian sweet wine with a nice body. They also make reservas each year which are said to range among the best sweet wines money can buy. Haven't had the chance to try a Eszencia coz money but the standard variants are good as well.
That stuff used to be very popular over here and still has a loyal following, it's just that sweet wines sort of fell out of fashion a while ago.
As for popularity, even the notion of a fashionable or unfashionable drink irritates me. Remember when for at most two summers people drank cider over a glass full of ice and it wasn't a tramps drink for 15 minutes?
