I have no ’65s. Would you be excessively offended by a Fonseca 1966?
Shabby stuff Julian - I think you should bring two to compensate!
Don’t have two. OK, I’ll choose something else: 2×G80; or 2×RP94?

I am very pleased to have been party to the tasting of 31 March 2007 as it perhaps marks the day when the placemats were adopted by the masses. Thank you JDAW.
My pleasure.

Re: 1969 Taylor Fladgate Quinta de Vargellas Vintage Port

Hello.

1969 is a rubbish year, but rarely seen. Somebody might want the curiosity value.

There’s no obvious photo. If you’re having trouble uploading then email it to me (contact details).

Where in the world are you? London v. New Zealand makes a difference!

Bumped, to remind attendees that this will happen.

I should probably sort out a review thread, then you can post notes.
Thank you.

If you put the paperwork on the web (or have me do it) it’ll go in the list.

Mystery tasting notes

I have some tasting notes, dated Thursday 26th April 2018, and entitled “Kerry Team Tasting”. Whenever I make the placemats I have kept the PostScript file (excepting the first few).

Re: 1948 Sandeman

S48, brick red, 40% opaque. Dry mature Port. Strawberry mid-palate, mid weight. Heat mid palate. Late palate a little cherry, but only little fruit remains. AHB remarked “cinnamon”. Lovely Port, slightly over-mature.
