Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

It appears that this is a tasting I would be foolish to miss. Could I please add my name, and would need to adopt please.

Re: Thu 15 Feb 2018: Mr. Wolfgang Starz

I am very sorry for the late notice, but I am afraid that people’s plans have changed and I would not be able to get to the tasting until late if I came so it is best if I withdraw. I wish you a fine tasting and shall raise a toast to you Wolfgang. Apologies again.

Re: Vintage Port - Souza and Grahams

Can you let us know where you are based. I would potentially be interested in making an offer on some or all of the bottles depending on ease of collection.
Many thanks,

Re: Thu 15 Feb 2018: Mr. Wolfgang Starz

I very much hope I could come but need to check the week before on Zac cover. I would not be eating but would be more than happy to cover service and Ws1 contributions. If Phil is coming it would be a TV69 if not a Dow 80 for my bottle.

Re: Thu 18 Jan 2018, Mostly 1982s, at Bar Douro

I thought it was a wonderful tasting, so I wish to doff hat to Alex for making the arrangements. In truth the private table we had upstairs was a bit small for the 9 of us but we did manage as all thirsty port drinkers do when required. The service was wonderful, Max was a great host and it was love...

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 ...

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!

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...
