    December 3, 2017 - TAYLOR-FLADGATE 325 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TAWNY PORT- Here`s some info about this odd shaped, squatty 1692 replica bottle: “The Port house of Taylor Fladgate celebrates 325 years of operation in 2017, so what better time than to put out a unique expression of Port? This is a tawny port with no age information (though on tawnies, an age statement doesn’t mean much anyway), but the winery does offer some information on its production:
    To commemorate the milestone, Taylor Fladgate’s blending team has drawn on their extensive cask aged reserves to create a special blend of fine oak-matured Ports selected for their depth and richness of flavor. The limited-edition Taylor Fladgate 325th Anniversary Reserve Tawny, released in a special 1692-style bottle, is a fitting tribute to Taylor Fladgate’s long history and mastery of the art of cask aging and blending.” “Wines that were destined for 10, 20, 30 and 40 Year Old Tawnies have been carefully selected by Taylor’s head winemaker, David Guimaraens, and blended to form this opulent and seductive aged tawny.”
    My notes: chocolate toffee molasses spiced fig cake. Nice bring.

    4/24/18, 9:59 AM - I had this a few weeks ago at a Taylor Fladgate tasting and I asked the question about the average age of the tawny ports in this bottling. The answer was 10 years.
