The NV 40 Year Old Port was bottled with a top cork in 2018. It comes in with 125 grams per litre of residual sugar. Big, weighty, and mouth-filling, this aromatic Tawny finishes with acidity and tension. Gripping on the finish, its flavours become more attractive as long as it sits in the glass (or on your palate). It is not as sunny as the Fonseca, its sibling reviewed this issue, but it is denser and more gripping. Compared to the Taylor 30 (also reviewed), I'm not sure I liked the 40 here much better. The 30 is a bit fleshier while this 40 is more concentrated in flavour and aromatics. Perhaps some additional age also helped this 40 combat some of the aggression on the 30. They are both okay, a difference of five to Midnight and five after, rather than night and day. It is still a fine experience and my favourite of the group. Could you not drink it too warm? The room temperature is mostly too warm. The sweet spot for most tends to be 58-62 degrees Fahrenheit.
