Jancis Robinson, 

"This was served at a wonderful dinner in The Factory House next to a Graham's 1970 that was so vigorous and concentrated that the more delicate 1966 was a little overwhelmed, but it certainly grew in the glass and is a lovely subtle current drink. 18/20 points." 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 

"This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strength and firmness that keep them going for decades." 

97 Points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: 

"This must be one of the most under-rated ports of all time! A deeper colour than the -63, garnet with a brick rim. The nose is typical 66 (in fact, echoing its Left Bank counterparts) in being very conservative and masculine, yet with stunning definition with notes of cigar box, mahogany bureau, sandalwood with an undercurrent of ripe cherry. The palate is foursquare with wonderful structure, spicier and more vigorous than the -63 with a notch more persistency and focus. Very good acidity and as fresh as a daisy on the finish, which has a seductive symmetry about it. Hints of wild strawberry, cigar box, apricot and autumn leaves with superb precision on the finish. A brilliant -66 - it must surely be the best of the vintage? Tasted November 2007."
