To celebrate Her Majesty The Queen becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth, Taylor’s Port, a Royal Warrant Holder to HM The Queen decided to bottle a Very Very Old Tawny Port. This excellent Port is drawn from extensive reserves of the finest wood aged wines, which have been maturing in seasoned oak casks since the Queen succeeded to the throne. The component wines for this limited-edition bottling have been individually selected and blended by Taylor’s blenders. The decades of ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense, complex nutty and spicy aromas, elevated by a crisp acidity which gives the wine an attractive freshness. The pioneering spirit of Taylor’s and the dedication to the highest standards in Port is encapsulated in this wine, that combine elegance and poise as well as subtle power and persistence.

Rich mahogany with a pale ochre rim. An opulent, heady nose overlaid with cigar box, roasted coffee, pressed rose petals and a hint of ginger. An intense,heather honey bouquet with some singed leather, scents of fine oak, five spice and figs. Beautiful aromatic structure which dances on your nose, enticing you in for your first sip. On the palate wonderful concentration and bright, racy acidity. Notes of anise, marzipan, quince, scorched orange peel, molasses, cardamom and a subtle hint of butterscotch. The symphony of flavours that awaken your senses are precise, in balance and alluring. An astonishingly refined and well-formed mature tawny port.
