Friday 16th March 2007: chez mon pÃƒÂ¨re, a sesquivertical of Cockburn and Taylor (paperwork). Present: JDAW MAW RAW WDBP RKA JFH MF SRG, and sort-of SVW. See review.
A vertical of Cockburn, with some matching Taylor vintages, and some mystery bottles.
• Unknown 1927
Sold some years ago as two bottles of “1927 port, house unknown†, one of which — hurray for port tongs, the best invention since branded corks — was Taylor. Most appropriate for the company, and much better than my one previous experience of Taylor 1927 (that one having faded very fast). This was brown-tinged dark red, nosing of plums, and tasting strongly of plums and the classic Taylor backbone. Two hours later it was much simpler. A very fine old port indeed, and my favourite of the evening.
