If I had to pick a style of Tawny port to drink forever (no don't make me do it) I guess it would be the 20 Year Old....

The Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port has intense aromas of prune, butter scotch and pecans. It is a full bodied, sweet, aged port; with good acidity, subtle tannins (no need for decanting) and a long, slightly warm finish. Drink as a desert; drink now – 2020. My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 93 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted in September 2013 at iYellow's Taylor Fladgate Port Party http://grapeselections.com/port-and-werewolves/

This is very good but it's not Graham's 20 and that's all that goes through my mind each time I sip this tawny. The difference is the weight and smoothness: a slight tang (which fades with open-air) takes away from what could be perfection. Definitely try it, but do so alongside the Graham's and you'll understand what I mean. (northof9finewine, Feb 2011)

Extremely pleasurable. Fresh floral and sweet butterscotch nose and taste. Smooth. Yum.

Beautfully smooth, with ample flavours of dried fruit, carmel, and nuts. Long, not excessively sweet, and wonderful to sip on a cool fall evening. A benchmark tawny. Sad to say that this can be had for almost $20 cheaper in the US. Drink now or whenever. Tasted Nov 2012.

Lighter in colour than I would have expected, the port had a well balanced nose with nutty, spicy and dried fruit aromas. The flavour was smooth with a roasted caramel finish.

Tasted blind at a Beefsteak & Burgundy club event, Feb. 2015.
