Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

People are reminded of the blinding technique used on 3rd June 2014, which “could be done by ≈‘1¼’ people only one of whom has any expertise or competence”.

Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

Would a Ramos Pinto 1994 be useful? I have others — will report back on Sunday, so should be able to bring more than one.

An idea for another slightly different tasting: "Battle of the blends"
Could we invite shippers to submit bottles? For a competition that we should describe as ‘playful’?

Re: 10th Sep 2019 - 1966 Horizontal at the B&F

Placemat style? Like that of the 1966 tasting of June 2013 , or April 2014 , or February 2016 ? I vote ’14, then ’13, then ’16. May I request September 2008 , please? September 2008, or January 2008? Assuming the latter. The placemats of 28 th January 2008 are bad: ugliness is always bad; there is ...

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Please could the organiser update the top page with the attendees who now can / can't make the new date Axel out; Tony in. provide instructions on what Ports should be brought by attendees?

Re: Tuesday 26th March 2019: DRT's Annual Elixir Tasting

A friend from the Port trade is going to be in the area at another event on the night of this tasting and intends joining us after dinner. I am therefore taking an executive decision to break the normal "14 Max" rule and we will be pouring 15 glasses from each bottle. You might wish to specify whet...

Re: Tuesday 26th March 2019: DRT's Annual Elixir Tasting

Please confirm that you are right-handed. I'm a lefty. Sorry, my presumption was because I had forgotten the clue (in a Bayesian sense): I'm doing a PhD in quantum computation with trapped ions at the University of Sussex. Long and short of it, manipulate individual atoms to make the next generatio...

Re: Vintage Port by retailer in London

Alert. Marks & Spencer 2007 (made by Taylor Fladgate, new corks as if hiding a pukker brand) have been, four times out of five, excellent. And £18. Marks & Spencer 20Y tawny is good and £12. Then they gave me voucher a £5 off my next visit if I spent £30+, so the next three cost £31. Marks & Spencer...

Small edit needed - the G63 is saying Graham 60 on the circle. Did you intentionally omit initials on the circles ?
G63: oops, thank you. Initials were fixed in version of 11:50.

And thank you for checking.

And changed to be a mixture of 6- and 5-pointed stars.
