Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port 1968
Dating to 1692, Taylor Fladgate is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses, and has one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. Beginning in 2014, they began releasing very limited editions of Single Harvest Port made 50 years prior. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label. They are packaged in individual wood boxes, and are the most exciting and collectible releases from Taylor's since the 1855 Scion a few years ago. If you were lucky enough to taste that, you know how special these cask-aged Ports can be.
98 points, Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous from the get-go, with toasted sesame, green tea, walnut husk, pistachio cream and peanut toffee notes seamlessly layered atop one another, framed by a subtle singed alder hint. Everything glides with grace through the finish like a gently wafting plume of smoke off burning incense. Drink now. 750 cases made." -Wine Spectator
