Description and Reviews:

Tasting Notes
Deep amber with mahogany highlights and a subtle greenish hue, indicating extensive aging. Its aroma is complex, with notes of dried fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, spices, vanilla, aged oak, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. The palate is smooth and full-bodied, with layers of flavours including dried fruits, caramel, honey, spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, and toasted almonds. The finish is elegant and incredibly longith a balanced sweetness and a complex, lingering aftertaste of nuts, toffee, and spices.

Serving & Food Pairing:
Tawny Ports are ready-to drink and do not require decanting. Best enjoyed slightly chilled at 12-13ºC they will work wonders if pairing with treacle tart, crème brulee or nut based desserts, like hazelnut praline.
