Was this bottle bought at Morrel's auction in NY?

I have had it since before I started keeping good records. So not bought in the US.

The Taylor 1948 has an uneven bottom, so does not stand vertically.

T24: brick red, 20% opaque. Nose had mocha and dark chocolate. Lovely mid-weight port, with mint and strawberry, and some heat. A slight touch of acridity mid-palate very slight. If this port had been tasted first I would have swooned over it. But the T20 was bigger.

Rim is clear, light rusty red to see through light burgundy core. Nose is warm and brandy-esque with slightly weak fruit notes of raisins. Palate is well integrated with raisins, caramel and orange. Unfortunately for this wine, it followed the T20. Very good port. 92 pts.

Pure deep orange in colour; 25% opaque. A touch muted on the nose compared to the 1920 shown alongside, but a little concentrated orange and rose hip syrup; lots of cinammon. Rich and sweet on impact, with a strong acidic core and some gentle tannins. More fruit and complexity than the 1920; lively spiciness. Gentle aftertaste and another long and multi-faceted finish. The finish is brilliant - it goes through several distinct phases over its 2-3 minute life. If only all port could be like this! 94/100. 22-Mar-13. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
