Krohn Tawny NV is (funnily enough) tawny-red in colour with aromas of caramel, butterscotch, currants and spice. The palate is sweet and smooth with rich red fruits backed by a nutty character. Full and textural balanced by an elegant finish.
Can be drunk slightly chilled as an aperitif, or during warm summer months. Otherwise pour at room temperature following a meal and serve with nuts and a cheese board.

Over the years I have tended to buy Late Bottled Vintage as a regular tipple, and bringing out the full vintage on special occasions. It was really ignorance that stopped me from trying either Tawny or Ruby Port. More fool me.
Krohn makes very excellent Tawny and Ruby Port at a price that is a steal. The Tawny, I find to be lighter and smoother of the two and Ruby is more full-bodied/richer. It is really horses for courses or personal taste.
An added bonus is that the corks on these bottles do not disintegrate on opening - whereas the LBV and Vintage are more susceptible to doing this no matter how careful you are or how long a corkscrew you use.
These are now my "go-to" choices for private sipping, and reserve the vintage for when I have guests.
