The 1927 Taylors Vintage Port is neither too young nor too old but just right. It has a gorgeous floral, spirit lift coupled with aromas of bitter chocolate, iodine and raisins. In the mouth it is lacy, full and gentle, filling the mouth with highly perfumed flavours and finishing dry, savoury and long.
Pale and rusty colour, translucent at the edge. It would be easy to be intimidated, drinking such a venerable wine, but this is lovely. There is a fine attack of spicy acidity, to compliment the candied fruits. Smooth, so smooth, with a satisfying mouthfeel. There is still plenty of backbone and length, with the finish developing in the glass. exc+
