Re: 2015 declarations

I thought Taylor might have released a VV as it is their 325th. Maybe they are being completely honourable and not just hanging a hook on a year...as they also seem to be doing re the Fonseca 1815-2015 bicentennial too [in not going for a full declaration], although they could also revert back to t...

YouTube of Cockburn Bicentennial tasting

Below is a link to a YouTube post from Jamie Goode from the Symington's Cockburn Bicentennial tasting. It is worth a watch and has a good story of acquiring some 1908 from a person in Norfolk.

Fun Foodie experiences

Whilst enjoying some fine port at the B&F last night, a couple of ideas for experiences that are well worth doing came up in conversation. I have been lucky enough to enjoy both the below when they were a bit cheaper, and although a bit pricey I can recommend them as great fun and very interesting i...

Re: Wed 19th April 2017 - A Short Notice Enquiry

It seems my child care situation has been resolved most satisfactorily, so I should be there to share some lovely port [and the marvellous NN63 if Derek can't make it]. Blind or sighted are both good for me...just let me know.

Port TV adverts

Happy Easter all... Below is a collection of links to old tv ads that promoted the great juice. I am sure there are others, but some should amuse you. I can probably guess most people's favourite too ;-) Cockburn Special Reserve - Guard dog https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pIUOVofhe-k Cockburn Special ...

Re: Wed 19th April 2017 - A Short Notice Enquiry

I would very much like to join this tasting, regardless of the bottles that are brought, but will need to confirm after the Easter weekend to firm up the childcare for young Zachary. I will of course be trying to explain the possible opportunity of tasting a NN63 to my port widow ;-)but fear it woul...

Just a post to resurrect this thread as it moves closer to happening... I can confirm I would still like to come, and still have the W70 to offer.

Do you want me to try (again) for a substitute?
Can it be me?
Unexpectedly, at this late stage I would now be able to attend, and would love to be there. I would be happy to take over adoption of the Mackenzie if that would be simplest or most helpful?
Splendid news!

A BBC quiz on apostrophe punctuation... (I shamefully only got 7/10)

And an accompanying documentary on the apostrophiser from Bristol, who would enjoy this thread and fit right in!
