Kingsman Edition Very Old Tawny
A deep mahogany brown core gradually fades through a halo of amber to a narrow rim of warm gold. After years in cask, Port develops an extraordinary multi-layered complexity unlike that of any other wine. This rare Port of great age is no exception. On the nose, the wine is seductive and intense, displaying multiple dimensions of opulent aroma. It opens with a rich confection of molasses and butterscotch, with notes of almond and dried fig, followed by a complex spicy redolence of vanilla, black pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Discreet scents of cedar and balsam emerge fleetingly in the background. The first impression on the palate is of a smooth, velvety texture and impressive volume and density resulting from decades of cask ageing. On the mid palate, a crisp, vibrant acidity emerges making the wine appear fresher and more ethereal. Flowing through the palate from end to end is an undercurrent of rich, intense, concentrated butterscotch flavour. The wine has an extraordinarily long finish, leaving a lingering impression of complex, mellow aroma on the palate for long after the wine has been consumed.
