Cockburn's 10 Year Old Tawny Port
In 1815, the Scotsman Robert Cockburn and his brother John, already successful wine merchants in Leith near Edinburgh, set up a branch of their firm in Porto: R & J Cockburn’s. They had many business partners through the years. And like all of the early Port companies the name changed. Eventually coming to be known as Cockburn’s & Co : the name that survives today.
Tasting note: Cockburn's 10 Year Old Tawny Port
The result is that the 10 Years Old is silky smooth, delicately fruity with a background of complex caramel, vanilla, honey and wood-aged flavours.
