Tasting Notes

The NV 30 Years Old Rare Tawny Port is a field blend bottled in 2018 with 134 grams of residual sugar and a bar-top cork. It is here in the lineup that you get a livelier Porto with a fine expression of fruit—but also a bit more of a brandy nuance, just a bit. It is a bit woody as well. The "old tawny" flavors then mingle with the brandy to create a dry and very serious feel. Still, this powerful tawny is gripping on the finish, intense and long. There's a spicy nuance on the fresh and juicy finish that I just loved. The fruit is nicely lifted, and it just seems very fresh. It was pretty delicious and surprisingly refreshing when tasted two days later. In the new Dow lineup, this might be the liveliest and the brightest, the one with the freshest feel. The 40 has other virtues and is equally if not more interesting, but this holds its own. I liked it a lot.

Score: 93
