Taylors Overview
+
This 1966 is the third limited edition release in a row of Taylor's as a 50th year anniversary of the wine. Taylor's holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the harvest on the label.

This exceptional 1966 vintage is broad amber colour with green-olive highlights. On the nose a complex variety of orange and marmalade, combined with a discreet vanilla oakiness and warm nutty notes of walnut and marzipan. The palate is very smooth and honeyed, leading to an apricot and fig finish; the is a big and lush port where the flavours linger deliciously long. An absolute amazing mouthful of port.

The perfect 50th Birthday present. Presented in a high quality wooden box.

Taylor's Single Harvest Port 1966 Limited Edition is displayed in a magnificent wooden box: same day delivery in London, next day UK mainland & free delivery on 6+ bottles.

“Very elegant, with notes of tobacco and cedar to the lush butter cream, ripe pear and dried apricot flavors. Seductive tropical fruit and spice notes linger on the endless finish, revealing citrusy hints. Drink now.”

“One of a series of releases of single harvest wines, this smooth, wood-aged Port is rich and still full of fruit. Ripe date and raisin flavors are lifted by acidity, with flavors from the wood aging giving great balance. Tawny in character, this beautiful wine is complex and ready to drink”

“The NV 20 Year Old Tawny was bottled with a bar top cork in 2013. It comes in at 111.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. A big mouthful, this is a 20 that first coats the palate and then ends with silky texture and concentrated flavor. Very graceful, it is not as impressive in terms of mid-palate density, but it is more than respectable. It shows fine complexity, appropriate to its age category. The finish seals the deal, more lingering and gripping than I expected from the first taste. It is another delicious Tawny from the Taylor Fladgate group this issue, so dig in. All of the Tawnies here have bar top corks. What that typically means is that they are ready to drink and not expected to be aged in the bottle. Barring cork failures, of course, Tawnies are very resistant and can be held a long, long time. They are certainly completely ready to drink now, though. (MS) ”
