Taylor's 40 Year Old Tawny Port

In stock

Product Information

Perfect 40th Birthday or Anniversary gift.

Made entirely from the grapes grown on Taylor’s own properties, Taylor’s is one of the few remaining houses which still produces a 40 Year Old Aged Tawny Port. Tiny quantities of this wine are made. Decades of evaporation and ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavour.

Tasting Notes

A sublime Port of very great age which shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated this extraordinary wine to an exceptional density, with a powerful nose of dried fruit, honey and a touch of spice. Impressions of nutmeg, roasted coffee and an intense nuttiness converge both in the bouquet and on the palate. The wine´s rich, intense, voluptuous, almost viscous texture culminate in a finish of incredible length.

How to Serve

Taylor’s 40 Year Old needs no accompaniment but could be served with the rich, nutty and fruity characters of a Comté or an aged Pecorino cheese.


"Big, weighty and mouth filling, this is an aromatic Tawny that finishes with acidity and tension. Gripping on the finish, its flavours become more interesting as long as it sits in the glass (or on your palate). It is still a fine experience and my favourite" Mark Squires,The Wine Advocate, December 2015

"I liked the delicacy and freshness of Taylor’s nutty, lingering 20 Year Old very much but, if I was pushing the boat out, this rich, intense 40 Year Old ticked lots of boxes.  A velvety, luscious palate has delicious citrus zing (orange peel and candied citrus) to its mellow, nutty palate of buttery macadamia and praline, with a touch of salt caramel. Lovely depth, harmony and complexity. Seamless, long, mellifluous finish." Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective, December 2017
