The Oddbins Take

1968 was one heck of a year. Rap legend LL Cool J, future incarnation of 007 Mr Daniel Craig and Ramsey Street resident Kylie Minogue were all born. Led Zeppelin were formed and played their first show at the University of Surrey, Lyndon B Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and Yale University, like an unstoppable force of progressivism, decided it might be okay if women got an education at their institution; it was a radical time!

It was also the year of an excellent Vintage for Port but while LL Cool J isn’t rapping anymore, and the current president of the US is probably trying to reverse the Civil Rights Act, Taylors Very Old Single Harvest 1968 is still going strong. Despite being 50 years old there is still some freshness with notes of plum and cherry, but the dominant flavours are of dried fruit, walnut, toffee and spicy hints of black pepper. A superb single harvest tawny, of incredible intensity and complexity
