To mark the 325th Anniversary of the foundation of Taylor-Fladgate, the house has decided to release Taylor’s 325th Anniversary Limited Edition Tawny Port – $47.99.

This unique blend has been made from the extensive reserves of tawny stocks stored in the firm’s lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. Only the best lots of 10, 20, 30 and 40 Year Old reserve Tawnies have been carefully selected and blended by Taylor’s Head winemaker, David Guimaraens and blended to form this opulent and seductive aged tawny. The etched bottle is based on a unique late 17th Century sealed bottle, first made at about the same time as the foundation of Taylor’s in 1692. It is the earliest example of an intact bottle bearing the merchant’s mark, in this case the ‘4XX’ Symbol still used as the Taylor’s trademark to this day. Tagged at an affordable price, the philosophy is this special bottling can be enjoyed by everyone!

Winemaker Notes: “Deep chestnut brown core encircled by a narrow brick rim. A rich figgy nose with a background of toffee and mocha, notes of plum and apricot, spicy hints of blackpepper, nutmeg and fleeting scents of jasmine, all come together in a heady complex harmony. Dense and luscious on the palate, with a wonderful velvety smoothness. The mellow flavours of butterscotch and molasses merge with rich jammy red berry flavours, a perfect blend of youth and maturity.”
