Had this a year ago. The 20-year tawny is a personal favorite. I’m always amazed how good this is whenever I have a glass. Taylor is run today from Oporto by descendants of the Yeatman and Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since the 1830s. Complex aromas rich with dried fruits and spice. On the palate apricot and sweet berry flavors with honey and toasted nut notes, well balanced nice acidity. Lingering finish ending smooth with oaky nut character. Very Nice. Tasting Sample.

Anyone rating this 9 or higher has never had Dow's Vintage Porto 1991. That's a 9. Much fuller and far more flavourful. And it's half the price of this port. The Dow's 1963 is a perfect 10.

Nutty, stewy, marmalade and raisins. Smells old and awesome! Mouth-coating and scrumptious. $215
