I've not seen this before :) by Alyson29
Dickensian? Do you think they mean the recipe was invented by Dickens? Or do you think they simply mean in was from the era when Dickens was alive? What a strange description. Well reviewed here, I'm glad you say it is best for sipping because, as you also say, it certainly is loaded with sugar. All the best, Mike. by MikeOCarroll

Calem - A Port for a Storm
Review of Calem White Dry Port by cr01

Advantages: A nice sweetish Dry White Port with no chemical taste
Disadvantages: Not particularly distinctive against the competition

I am a fan of all Ports, but one of my favourites is a type largely unsung in the UK; the dry white port. Most places in the UK only sell sweet white port beyond the more usual varieties of red Port, and we often get our fix of dry white by buying it in P ... Read review

I have a white port lurking somewhere which I have yet to open. I bought it having read an extremely favourable magazine snippet but haven't found the right (ahem) 'occasion' for it. Do I need one? by fizzytom

Taylor's (not particularly) Select Port (but good nevertheless)
Review of Taylors Select Port by cr01

Advantages: Good value solid tasting Port
Disadvantages: Doesn't have the "wow"

We’ve drunk quite a few bottles of port over the years and even visited the delightful old town of Porto in Portugal for no other reason than to eat fresh squid in seafront restaurants and tour a few of the thirty or so port lodges within spitting distanc ... Read review

Pink port... pink toes
Review of Croft Pink Port by Walowiz

Advantages: Lighter tasting port, palatable, good taste
Disadvantages: Gout

Why did I buy it: I bought it as a special gift for Mother last Christmas and as I knew she enjoyed it so much and it keeps her quiet for hours on end, I bought more for her this year also. It costs £10.99 which is a price I am able to afford. Mother u ... Read review

I love port but find it quite heavy. I saw pink port recently in Marks & Spencer, but decided not to buy it. I think I will definitely try some now, so thanks for your review! by ELDG77
