1955 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:54 Wed 12 Jan 2011

Very pale, butterscotch in colour. Nosing of butterscotch Angel Delight. Empty palate impact, nothing but bland syrup. Hollow. Strange, buttery aftertaste - not pleasant, but not unpleasant - but this is swamped by the rosemary normally encountered in a very old port. Not representative and not rated. Drunk 10 Jan 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
