Xmas Gifts Parade 2021 - Taylor's Port

Today’s bottle is a limited edition Taylor’s Port from the Historical Collection. The third bottling in this series was carefully put together with specially selected Ports from Taylor’s Tawny stocks, aged in seasoned oak Port pipes. Perfectly balanced Port wines with all the intensity and finesse derived from aging. The bottle shape for this special edition is a throwback to the bottles of the 18th century. 

  • Nose: Coffee, butterscotch and dried fruit, with notes of plum and raisin. Lighter notes of spice, nuts and wood. 
  • Mouth: Round flavours with smooth silky texture. Toffee and fruit which continue into the long, warming finish. 

I saw this recipe as a suggestion in my local supermarket. I just had to try. It’s a low alcohol aperitif and basically a very fruity Cosmo-alternative. The deep fruit flavours of the Port are in the spotlight. 

Fruity Port Cosmo

60 ml Taylor’s Port
60 ml Cranberry juice
10 ml Cointreau

Add everything to a shaker with lots of ice. Give it a good shake, when the shaker is cold, strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish is optional.
