Tasting notes Taylors 40 year old tawny Port.
The NV 40 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled with a bar top cork in 2014. 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. Some additional age also helped this 40 combat some of the aggression on the 30. They are both pretty fine, 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. Please don't drink it too warm. The room temperature is mostly too warm. The sweet spot for most tends to be 58-62 degrees Fahrenheit.
Taylors 10 year old tawny Port, The NV 10-Year Old Tawny Port, was bottled in 2014 with 105.23 grams per liter of residual sugar. Quickly the 10 with the most weight in the Fladgate group's lineup this issue, it is a rather powerful 10 year old Tawny with plenty of pop, the biggest and worst of the trio (Fonseca, Croft and this). There is a very fine flavour concentration for a 10 year old Tawny. If I had a quibble, the alcohol shows at times, especially early on and rather notably when drunk a little too warm. (To be sure, around 60 degrees Fahrenheit is a lot better than room temperature most of the time, not just here.) Overall, the weight, complexity, mouth feel and grip on the finish still make this my favourite of the 10s submitted by Taylor Fladgate in this issue. Although it's close, there are some pros and cons. This comes with a bar top cork, i.e., not intended to be aged (although it most certainly can hold a couple of decades, barring cork failures).
