To mark the 325th Anniversary of the foundation of the house we have decided to release Taylorâ€™s 325th Anniversary Limited Edition Port. This unique blend has been made from the extensive reserves of tawny stocks stored in the firmâ€™s lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. Wines that were destined for ageing as 10, 20, 30 and 40 Year Old Tawny lots have been carefully selected by Taylorâ€™s Head winemaker, David Guimaraens and blended to form this opulent and seductive aged tawny.The bottle is based on a unique late 17th Century sealed bottle, first made at about the same time as the foundation of Taylorâ€™s in 1692. It is the earliest example of an intact bottle bearing the merchantâ€™s mark, in this case the â€˜4XXâ€™ Symbol still used as the Taylorâ€™s trademark to this day. This opulent and seductive aged tawny is a fitting tribute to Taylorâ€™s 325th anniversary and to the firmâ€™s expertise in ageing and blending the finest cask aged ports.Deep chestnut brown core encircled by a narrow brick rim. A rich figgy nose with a background of toffee and mocha, notes of plum and apricot, spicy hints of blackpepper, nutmeg and fleeting scents of jasmine, all come together in a heady complex harmony. Dense and luscious on the palate, with a wonderful velvety smoothness. The mellow flavours of butterscotch and molasses merge with rich jammy red berry flavours, a perfect blend of youth and maturity.
