1938 Taylor

Post by AHB » 23:55 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Late Bottled. Light brown with an amber edge, 20% opaque. Dusty fruit nose that is quite attractive with lots of spicy tobacco and powerful marmalade. Tobacco on entry, with a lovely density and sweetness, lots of rose-hips and concentrated orange or grapefruit. Gentle acidity balances the evolved fruit and develops into a strong pine-needle flavour. The aftertaste and finish are full of aniseed, lively and peppery and has a great length. 89/100. Drunk 25-Sep-14. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
