Taylor’s holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label. Taylor’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. - Taylor Fladgate
 
Very elegant, with notes of tobacco and cedar to the lush butter cream, ripe pear and dried apricot flavors. Seductive tropical fruit and spice notes linger on the endless finish, revealing citrusy hints. Drink now. 175 cases imported. - Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator
 
Love the toffee, salted nut, cedar and leather character to this vintage tawny. Honey too. Full and very sweet with silky tannins and a dried fruit finish. Turns to figs and leather on the aftertaste. A superb old wine that was aged in cask until bottling. Drink now. - James Suckling

The 1966 Single Harvest Tawny Port (i.e., a Colheita) is a traditional blend, aged in French and American oak. It comes in at 183 grams per liter of residual sugar. Surprisingly rich and fresh, this seems younger than its age. The complexity here is not quite as great as with some and the nuances of molasses and the like are controlled. On the other side of the coin, it has a rather sensual texture, finishing with a sugary burst. Underneath is the expected acidity and a bit of pop. Overall, it is rather seductive and quite delicious. Note that this will be released in January 2016, part of Taylor's old Colheita releases. - Mark Squires, Wine Advocate

This was served at a wonderful dinner in The Factory House next to a Graham's 1970 that was so vigorous and concentrated that the more delicate 1966 was a little overwhelmed, but it certainly grew in the glass and is a lovely subtle current drink. - Jancis Robinson
