What did Port taste like in 1870? Find out in this beau­ti­fully pre­sented Cen­te­nario Port Duo lux­ury case, which holds full-sized bot­tles of 1870 and 1970 Old Col­heita Tawny Port, along with a 50ml minia­ture of each Port and a signed cer­tifi­cate. This once-in-a-life­time sip is due to the ef­forts of the Last Drop Dis­tillers, who typ­i­cally re­lease spir­its. For their 11th re­lease, they have painstak­ingly sourced these Col­heitas from the van Zeller fam­ily cel­lars. The glossy dark red 1870 Tawny looks frag­ile but still sings with deep verve and sub­tle acid­ity, with an elu­sive fin­ish that whis­pers lay­ers of fig, cedar, clove and or­ange peel notes. The younger 1970 has richer clove and cof­fee notes, well-rested and bal­anced with still-zippy acid­ity and ten­sion. $6,280 from Vinum Fine Wines
