Found 11th Nov 2017
First Estate Reserve is still vinified at this old property, it is blended to produce a rich, full young port with an abundance of fruit - a true reflection of the Taylor's style and tradition. Produced by The Fladgate Partnership.

75 cl, its cheapest per bottle price, typically around £11-£12 normally.

One of the best 15 according to 2016 Independent paper.

As of now, 36 votes with 78 degrees heat. Last night with 20 something votes , with around equal number of cold to hot votes this deal went to minus 2 cold. Deal seemed to be warming up this morning. Same behaviour of voting for my other port deals except the Tokaji Aszu. I wonder if this is due to port not being as popular alcoholic drink.
hhmmm love port ...this one is lovely...will go and get me some today! ..thx x
Anyone know how this compares to others of similar price or cheaper)such as the M&S one selling for £8? Was thinking of making up a present with a cheese selection and bottle of port for older relative. ready assembled packs seem to have rocketed in price this year

M&S one is 50cl is made by Taylor, it is comparable in flavours to a £12-£14, 75cl bottle , reduced to £8 to £10. I think this Taylor discounted is better value , and you will find people on that M&S decanter thread comment that you can get better for that money.
You know that M&S one is 50cl, may be too small as a gift, made better by that decanter but it is not a good decanter without a fancy glass stopper.
As a gift for an older relative, if you can fill out up to a tenner, go for a discounted 10 year tawny with a tubular cardboard packaging. This is £15.29 at Waitrose and is 75cl. The M&S one is effectively £12 for 75cl. So £3 more you get a better taste and 75cl full bottle. 50cl just feel too much like half as a gift.
