Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

It was momentarily looking unlikely, but I am pleased to confirm my place. I would also like to confirm my vote for suckling pig and that I will bring the S80 bottled in 1982. I shall look forward to seeing those coming on Thursday. Hopefully there is still room for DRT as it would be a fine way to ...

Pig please if it works. I think I am all good to come but will confirm by the end of the week.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

I tried 3 bottles of the 1992 Maynard LBV from last year when released at Christmas. The first bottle was nothing to write home about, but I thought the next 2 that I had were fantastic and well worth the £20 so late have bought a couple more from the release this year.

I've given up trying to find a bottle of the mythical 40YO tawny @ £30
Some reports in the press are suggesting that Aldi is now responsible for 20% of the World’s 40YO aged tawny sales. It would be significantly higher if people could find it on sale!

Re: Thursday 18th January 2018?

Can you pencil me in please... I will need to check Zachary care after Christmas. I could offer a Sandeman 1980 bottled in 1982?

Seckford tasting

Is anyone going to the Seckford tasting at the Naval & Military club this evening? I am hoping to get there for the 6.30pm start and will look forward to seeing you there if so.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

I am sure most of you are aware, but just in case... the annual Christmas port offering from Aldi has hit the shelves this week. It is much the same as last year, with the following available whilst stocks last: 40YO Maynard's Aged mid-tawny port 750ml: £29.99 (Great value bottle but can anyone shed...

Re: (28 or 29) Nov 2017 - TBD

I hope I could make either of these dates (but would need to confirm nearer that I have Zac care)... and would be happy with any theme, including an early ‘69 mini horizontal if you fancy Phil. If it were to be Calem, I would need to adopt but otherwise happy to bring a bottle to share.

Ps. I take it Jdaw is sourcing Imperials of Sandeman 70 rather than the mag to make up for the balls up :-)

Re: Thu 30 Nov 2017, Sandemans and 1970s (for the Placemat Software’s 15th anniversary)

If we are going to attempt sticking to the date... I would suggest the option of Bar Douro and having Max join us with a bottle too. I have been there with Mike, and couple of times since and think it is a great space, really good food, and obviously understands Port lovers. That said, if the date m...

Re: 1981 Warre LBV

I used the one old Warre LBV (‘74 which was fabulous) at a previous tasting, so the oldest I could offer would be the 2003 [which was only last years offering]. From a very small amount of experience with these lovely ports, it would be a great tasting that I would love to go to, but would probably ...

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Bargain Warre’s Otima 20YO If you like a tawny, check your local Lidl for a clearance special on Warre’s Otima 20YO (500ml). The shelf ticket will state £19.99 but at the till they come up on a clearance price of £7.99. I just relieved my local Lidl of 3 bottles for £23.97 giving a Mag worth of 20YO...

Shame you won’t be able to make it Derek. I hope you are on the mend. Btw, did you notice that was your 15,000th post on the forum?
