Found 11th Nov
In store from 14 Nov 2017, but available online order on its own with free delivery. This 40 year old is the peach (best) of Maynards at Aldi. Featured in newspapers and on web site a lot in 2015 and 2016. If you could find this in other small shops then it is double the price. Typical price elsewhere is about £60 such as this.

Maynard’s 40 Year Old Tawny Port, NV
  • Produced by: Barão de Vilar Vinhos
  • From: Porto, Portugal
  • Grape: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz
  • Tasting Notes:
    Mid-tawny. Clementine, walnut and mocha aromas. Sweet walnuts and earth spices. Rich mouthful finish, almost dry.
  • Alcohol level: 20.0%
  • Wine style: Fortified
  • 75cl

This 40-Year-Old Tawny Port has typical aromas of cask ageing, including clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and liquorice. There are notes of warm roasted coffee, with an intense nuttiness. It's great as a digestif, or as an accompaniment for cheese,






foi gras, Christmas pudding and mince pies, cakes, chocolates and crème brûlée.

Please note, this item is available as a single product only. It’s not part of our ‘create your own case’ offering, so you don’t need to pick a minimum of 6 bottles to purchase this item.

A 40 year old fortified wine?

For a DIY option, just put a bottle of Buckfast aside in the cellar for 40 years

Also is the £19.99 Maynard's 1992 LBV Port (25 years), also available in store from 14th Nov , but you can order online now for delivery but you need to make up 6 bottles of any wine for an order.

A roundup of my Aldi port posts:-

The collection of fortified wines is also pretty impressive. If you want to splash out Maynard’s Late Bottled Vintage Port 1992 at £19.99 has lovely flavours of chocolate and cherries and a slight hint of pepper. If you’re on a budget Maynards also do a 2012 Late Bottled Vintage Port for £9.99 – which is almost as nice.

Oh, and there’s a Maynard’s 40 year old tawny port for £29.99. It comes in a lovely bottle and makes a great gift. Tawny ports are made in much smaller barrels than ruby ports, so there is more oxidation. Ruby ports taste of fresh fruit, tawny ports taste of dried fruit. This one has lovely flavours of dried figs, dates, raisins. It would make a great gift and would be just the thing to serve with the mince pies.

Does this mix well with diet lemonade?

Taste better emptying a packet of gums in this.

Already bought mine from the Aldi in Basingstoke Road, Reading. Opposite the Trooper Potts (Hungry Horse pub). There is only one on display so you have to find a member of staff and request them to to be placed at the tills to purchase. Sat here now at 2 in the morning testing it whilst watching UFO very psychedelic, UFO and not the port, which is very nice.


Clementine and mocha aromas. Sweet walnut and spices, a Rich mouthfeel finish.......lovely

Nose of burned sugar, raisins, prunes and cedar wood. Sweet but still quite fresh and tight with hints of exotic fruit. Slightly bitter and acetone-like finish. Rather good. 92-94p.

This 40 year or Graham’s 20 year?

Good question, there is a comparison of Graham 20, 30, 40 years , as you note answer of one or the other is down to specific drinker's sensory perception.

although he says he thinks the 30 is best it seems quite obvious to me that he's enjoying the 20 the most, also why is he spitting it out, he got somewhere he needs to be driving to

Did you start drinking at 2 or finish at 2? Starting at 2 would indicate alcohol problem.

Got the 29 year old Whisky coming, do I need this for Christmas as well?

Ordered. Many thanks

this is gonna be over 500 hot

very unlikely, there seems to be one to two cold voters to every 4 hot voters. Like snakes and ladders, up some, down a bitI would be unlikely to get above 300 degrees, same for all wines deals as Aldi don't do this mental foolery , 50 % off, was £60 , now £30.

Thanks splender!

Got 2, one for myself and one to gift to my dad back in oz over Christmas.

40 Years aged Buckfast? That's 4 times older than many of its drinkers.

What is it expected to be, a hand-me-down for the great-great-great grandchildren?

really.

so it wouldn't indicate finishing a shift at midnight, taking 25 minutes to get through security ( because you won the "who shall we search tonight" raffle ), then changing the flat tyre on the car before making the 40 minute drive home

Another arguement out of nothing. So glad the mute button works

Sold out online. :-(

Oh, that was quick. Hard work to look for one in a store.
Alternative is to buy a Maynard 1992 + a Maynard 10 year old tawny for £30. I would be happy with this and wait for stock to come back on-line or wait till next year. I couldn't find one in a store last year so I had to wait.

well. Thanks anyway. I got it online last night. Great deal. 400 hot now,you never know!

thanks for posting

They still have the '100 years of port' available online for the same price

its 200 mL of each 10, 20, 30 & 40 y.o.

I was tempted to get this as it would be nice trying the varieties. If they had priced it slightly under the 40 y.o. alone I would have gone for it

I am surprised at this heat as in 2015 this was 240 degrees and in 2016 it was less than 300 degrees? (cannot locate the 2016 in search on hotukdeals)

I have the same sentiment as you. I think £15 for the 30 YO + 40 YO, so the 10 YO and 20 YO of 40 cl in total is worth £10 with all the glass. So I think tops really at £25 so £30 is too much mark-up, may appear to those who buy a selection of jars and bottles like honey, jams, minatures...

Just picked up a bottle of the 40 year port in my local Aldi They had several bottles in plus a range of whiskys and stuff including the 29 year old single malt (though a shame it's only at 40%), and the 26 year Irish whisky, as well as other stuff.. a really good line up to be fair. It was all in the christmas specials section, rather than with the rest of the booze.

Resisted the urge to be a selfish git and clear the shelf, though it was tempting.. just settled for the one bottle.

Got the port today delivered. Decent service by Aldi

I bought this and it tastes like barse

Got one in store Carluke, a present for family. Heat added, thanks.

Anyone other than 'balls and arse' blacklodge tried this yet?

Out of interest blacklodge, are you a port drinker normally? Only I bought 4 of these for gifts and would hate for them to be unpleasant?

Hey Luke,
yes I do drink port, though I am ashamed to say my favourite is dows reserve, but I know that is like Carling to some folk. I thought this was really horrible. Sorry. But not as sorry as I am

Just drinking mine, it has a slight hint of lemon/critrus sharpness which cuts through the concentrated flavours of toffee like caramalised chocolatey sutanas and dried dates with orangey rind. It is sweet, same sort of flavours as a Christmas pudding or any dessert that has caramelised sugars and some dried fruits. Of all the flavours the toffee like camranelisation is the strongest. Because of its age it is much less wine like and is more like a dessert drink.
