Taylor's Very Very Old Tawny Port King Charles III Coronation Edition Overview

-
To mark the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III on 6th May, 2023, Taylor’s has set aside a very limited amount of Very Very Old Tawny Port to be bottled as a commemorative limited edition. To create a wine worthy of the occasion, with its paramount importance in the national life of the United Kingdom, Taylor’s blenders have drawn on some of the oldest and rarest Ports maturing in oak casks in the company’s lodges in Oporto.

The resulting blend provides a magnificent way in which to celebrate this historic milestone and to wish His Majesty a long and glorious reign. Founded in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest and most respected Port houses. His Majesty King Charles III is the 15th monarch to reign during the lifetime of the company.

David Guimaraens, Taylor’s Head winemaker, explains: “The component wines for this limited-edition blend were from our finest and oldest cask aged ports. Carefully selected for their balance and complexity. Decades of ageing in oak casks have given them a majestic power and depth while retaining a remarkable freshness and vitality.”

The Taylor’s Coronation very very old tawny port is in the classic Taylor’s frosted tawny bottle. Comes in an elegant beech wood box. This limited edition of 1500 bottles. Ready to drink. Does not require decanting. Drinking window: 2023 - 2035

Tasting Note: Quite a punchy bouquet, a little nuttier and smokier than expected, with Montecristo cigars mixed with sweeter scents of nougat and vanilla pod. The sweetness comes through more on the palate than the nose. It’s very well balanced and clearly blended to be drunk now instead of being cellared like nearly all tawny Ports. Molasses, grilled hazelnuts with a pinch of cracked black pepper appear toward the finish. There is a seductive viscosity towards the finish with just the faintest dab of dried honey. Delightful. - Tasted by Neal Martin
