1945 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:46 Sat 11 Jul 2009

From the cellars of the Duke of Buccleaugh. Cloudy appearance. Paler in colour than the Croft 1945 shown alongside. Yeast and bread (some described it as paint) on the nose. Affected badly by bacterial infection. Not tasted, not rated. Opened 29 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

the oddest smelling Port I've ever put my nose into. Major problems, yet it was soundly sealed by a Taylor's 4X wax seal and branded cork.

Very sad, I thought that it smelled like zinc and castor oil cream. There was no way it was entering digestive system.
Port is basically a red drink

Lets look at this positively. In this way Christian did not put the spitoons on the table for nothing. :D

This same fault was later seen in a bottle of Taylor 1960.
