Taylor’s 40 Year Old Tawny Port

A lot of dark, liquorice aromas with some caramel and raisin. Cocoa and toffee and some lovely sweet tobacco.  The palate is fat, globular and spicy.  Very little balance and a lot of alcohol heat. There is a spice flavour there and the finish is sweet and clean but it is just lacking in any grace and is, really, a ‘bang for your bucks’ wine, and at a hundred pounds a bottle, that is a lot of bucks. 85pts (Dec 2011)
