1967: the year the roadside breathalyser was introduced, The Beatles released their second album, and the year of Taylor’s latest release of limited edition tawny port.
The fourth in a series of releases of limited edition 50-year-old tawny port, the 1967 Single Harvest Port is described as having hints of orange flower and honeysuckle aromas, together with a rich mellow base of toffee, marzipan and almond. The palate is described as being velvety with crisp acidity, apricot, guava and raisin flavours, underlined with butterscotch and a touch of caramelised orange on the finish.
‘Since we launched the first 50-year-old Single Harvest with the 1964 vintage four years ago, we’ve enjoyed strong consumer demand,’ said Taylor’s managing director, Adrian Bridge. ‘Port is one of the few wines which can withstand the passage of time and still deliver complexity and youthful freshness half a century later.
‘Having one of the most extensive collections of cask-aged ports of any company, Taylor’s is in a good position to offer consumers these extraordinary ports for years to come.’
The port comes in a traditional frosted bottle, packaged in a wooden box.
