Re: Weds 14 March 2018, Blind, SQVP or a mature LBV

Mike thank you very much for initiating and making arrangements for this tasting. It was great fun with great company as always. :) This was quite an eclectic flight indeed. I always wondered how an LBV would show after a few years and it was delcious. I definitely learnt a lot, especially for the w...

Re: Weds 14 March 2018, Blind, SQVP or a mature LBV

Yay! I can bring a single quinta for sure. Mature LBV is harder to find when it comes to older vintages. Let me know how many bottles and what is needed or if everything is sorted port-wise, let me know how I can contribute. With regards to food: May I have the duck liver pate to start please, follo...

Re: Weds 14 March 2018, SQVP or a mature LBV

With regards to SQVPs , they are made quite similarly to VPs , with 2-3 years ageing in cask and no ftration prior to bottling. They are generally produced from the producer's finest vineyard in non declared years. I would be inclined to ignore the vineyard boundaries and Noval Silval's don't come ...

Last week were drunk, from my cellar, three double-magnums of Sandeman Vau 2000. Plus my last Cockburn 1955.
How was the 2000? Must have been good to drink 3 Mags in a week lol! I really like the '99.

Re: We need some tastings in the diary

Fabulous - it seems we have plenty of reasons to assemble with much port! So how about this: Feb - Port fit for a Queen's subject (with a date to be determined that is good for said subject) Mar - SQVP or mature LBV Apr - Bring a bottle to share with Derek's new Knees I'm quite intrigued by the mat...

I now need to compile the food order (any volunteers to assist me with this?) and so can I ask these to be posted within this thread and by this weekend if at all possible (if someone can do the honours of replicating or linking to the menu that would be appreciated!). Am now going to start sending...

Re: 1967s, at the B&F, Thu 08 June 2017

Thank you Tony for arranging a fantastic tasting and everyone who contributed and assisted in making this happen. I liked the '67 Ports and agree with JDAW above, light and well balanced with lots of candy aromas. From the declared bunch, Quinta Do Noval was a favourite, followed by Sandeman and las...
