Leathery notes, warmth and dried fruit on the nose. Fiery palate, long and warm. Light a cigar!

This port is truly awesome. While not as good as the 20 year or 30 year old, we have found no greater taste at this price point and we have tried. No need to decant, this Port begs you to finish it all but kicks a punch in the morning.

Taylor Fladgate 10 year Tawny is more ruby than tawny in the glass. The nose offers up dark and dried fruit with a hint of nuttiness that plays out in a more pronounced way on the palate. A full bodied almost creamy mouthfeel, with some alcohol heat and excellent length. Really well done for their entry Tawny (10 years) in the series. Oct. 2014.

The Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Port has intense aromas of stewed prune, plum and roasted walnuts. It is a full bodied, sweet, integrated to aged port; with good acidity, and a medium to long finish. Drink as a desert; drink now – 2020. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts – recommended for its quality and value. Tasted in September 2013 at iYellow's Taylor Fladgate Port Party http://grapeselections.com/port-and-werewolves/

A wonderful sipper. Nose and taste has a balanced complexity of walnuts, caramel, and those English candy strawberries with the white power on them. Medium body and a nice touch of sweetness on the finish. Excellent stuff!

Taylor Fladgate is often considered the standard-bearer for Tawny Ports - at least those readily available. With this 10-year, it's easy to see why.

Floral aromas with clay, wood, red berries and dried fruits.

Wonderful palate of spirits and savoury dried fruits, resinous notes, medium+ finish.

Tawnies are generally more versatile than LBVs, with the savoury backbone offering a lot of latitude. An excellent introduction to the style.

Last tasted November 2016.

Medium-to-high intensity nose, savoury with dried fig, raisin, prune and blackberry aromas that echo nicely on the smooth palate. It has a sinewy mouthfeel and finishes long and smooth. Tasted Nov/2014.
