Taylor's releases latest 50 year-old Port
Taylor’s has released a 1967 Single Harvest Port, the fourth in a series of 50 year-old limited edition Tawny Ports.
The newcomer is presented in a traditional frosted bottle and packaged in a high quality wooden box.
The Port is described as having hints of orange flower and honeysuckle aromas on the nose, matched with a rich mellow base of toffee, marzipan and almond. A concentrated, velvety palate is lifted with crisp acidity, apricot, guava and raisin underlined with flavours of butterscotch and a touch of caramelised orange on the finish.
Taylor’s managing director, Adrian Bridge, said: “Since we launched the first 50 Year Old Single Harvest with the 1964 vintage four years ago, we’ve enjoyed strong consumer demand. Port is one of the few wines, which can withstand the passage of time and still deliver complexity and youthful freshness half a century later. Having one of the most extensive collections of cask-aged Ports of any company, Taylor’s is in a good position to offer consumers these extraordinary Ports for years to come.”
The Port is released through UK agents Mentzendorff & Co, with a recommended retail price of £175 per bottle.
