1985 Taylor

Post by PhilW » 13:43 Wed 24 Sep 2014

At the request of Glenn E., passing through London on the way to Porto, an evening of port tasting with the theme "Variety is the Spice of Life". With TBH closed for refurbishment, this was held at Davy’s at Woolgate Bar and Brasserie where we were looked after very well.

quite dark, as dark as the F85, the nose is more intense and kind of "fatter" than that of the F85, in the nose a lot of eucalyptus, the taste is kind of simple and sweetish, a rather short finish, I had expected more of a port made by Taylor's

75% opacity, dark red, slightly cloudy, great legs. Muted nose. Stewey. Closed? Smooth but then a tannic finish. Again nothing wrong with this, but far from a blockbuster. marginally better than the G85 and F85, but all of these were really not on their game.
