Taylor's Very Old Single Harvest Port 1968
Taylor’s holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. This limited edition bottle of single harvest port by Taylor's has been aged for exactly 50 years and is the fifth in the series. It is from a 1968 harvest which has aged to full maturity in a seasoned oak cask. It is ready to be consumed straight from the bottle, without the need for decanting. Made from grapes from the 1968 harvest, features an intense, concentrated, flavour thanks to the ageing process. The label on the front shows you what year the harvest took place for the grapes to mature; along with the Taylor's crest giving the consumer the date in which the company was established; over three centuries ago in 1692.
Brewed in the Douro Valley, Portugal; this tasteful wine has gentle aromas of singed alder giving way to a wide range of walnut husk, pistachio cream, toasted sesame and green tea finished with toffee peanut notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension. Everything glides with grace through to the finish. This highly sought after beverage is limited in number and would make the perfect 50th birthday, anniversary or company gift. The 1968 is a perfect follow-up to their outstanding 1967, it is superb now but also has plenty of life ahead.
This port has been aged for five decades and is ideal for consuming straight away, no further ageing required. Take time to savour the extreme aromatic complexity with delightfully mellow structures and share with good company for a truly memorable evening. Best served at room temperature in port glasses.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR FONT CAREFULLY BEFORE HAVING YOUR SELECTED GIFT ENGRAVED.
There are a small selection of fonts which will contain different character designs, and you may not like or approve of some of them. For example, in one of the fonts - 'Victoria' - the letter 'V' looks similar to the letter 'D' because of the italic serif design. Once an item has been engraved we cannot refund or exchange it, because we will not be able to resell an engraved item.
