1983 Taylor

Post by AHB » 19:57 Sun 25 Aug 2013

Imperial College stock. Very pale when first decanted, but put on colour and depth in the decanter. Attractive nose of smoke and strawberry syrup. Masses of sweet, black licorice on the palate, with a lively spiciness throughout the flavours - great palate. Typical Taylor heat on the late palate and aftertaste, gentle tannins giving way to a long, fine finish full of bitter-sweet birch-sap. Tasty and enjoyable port. 87/100. Drunk 24 August 2013 with a 4 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
