Re: Pointless Statistics

I vote that Alex buys either Vargellas, or Malvedos, or Noval.

Any preferences between these three?

Re: Wed 25th or Thursday 26th March

Permission granted for either date. Not sure whether I can fairly interpret the permission as being for both.

Re: "official" Vintage Port map (IVDP)

1978? 1982? But not 2009?

1989: Axelʼs comment was too gentle.

What data determined 1756 but not 1757? (See TH chapter.)

What data determined 1765?

a placemat can be 1.5 of A4 paper, so at tasting time, we could potentially fit a few more settings in.
People are wider than 1×A3 = 2×A4 = 420mm.

Only because there were no placemats. Next time there will be placemats, so I’m in.

A kopke vertical would be an interesting event. I have a few vintages (but never enough). I would be happy to organise if enough interest.
Yes please. I have a little Kopke St Luis 1970.

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

This is the sort of leadership that we like to see. Agreed. And thank you. (The ’70 babies might have been born in a good Port year, but you’ve excelled them in competence.) Re tiering, eleven years ago we were very impressed with both Cálem and Cálem Foz, both of which were candidate WOTE (‘Event’...

Re: 1970 Horizontal - Tier 3 ports

Evening prior, North Korean style, now has 100% of the votes.

But if the consensus is different, I'll still go with it.

on the limit of what it is possible to taste in one day.
Thirty-five bottles, between fourteen people, was the top limit of what my eleven-years-younger self could do.

Re: Prime assortment for sale, auction or just a good home

I might have some interest — and work in central London, simplifying delivery.

Please, how many are there of each?

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

I’m have a mostly dry January, which achieves most of the health benefits (which, of course, are none), without forcing me to miss events (broadly defined). I like the idea of free pour (be restrained about portion size), with a 2pm start. There needs to be an organiser who is to decide the date, fo...

If a couple of late additions might be acceptable- self plus OJW. If acceptable - OJW food order same as my standard, save that steak medium-rare as opposed to medium-well.

The placemats updated again.

Please could our organiser ensure that we will have enough glasses for nine people and eleven Ports.
