Re: Port To Keep...

"where is the best place to buy from?"

You can start with checking out Wine Searcher on the internet. There you get ratings and shops for each wine.

Re: Port To Keep...

Hello and welcome Gavin. These are some Ports that have scored high in tastings so far. Unfortunately not available until autumn as said before. Any one of these will surely be much appreciated 20+ years down the line. Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2015 Cockburn's Vintage Port 2015 Quinta do Vesuvio ...

And just for the record:

990 < OldBridgeFjell < 1191
962 is closer than 1191
The situation in a nutshell.

Re: One quiz at a time

My fault Glenn. You are correct. However there are also metric Munros, that rise above the 1000m mark.
OldBridgeFjell is qualified as a METRIC Munro.

Hmm... so 914 < OldBridgeFjell < 990.

Vornut? 962 meters?
A Munro is 1000m+

962 is 2nd so far.

899m

See my reply further back: "But then again, maybe not.
However, in Scotland it would qualify as a Munro."

So no cigar.

edit: But you are 2nd best now.

Re: Apostrophe crimes

Mt. Rainier is 14,411. :-P I've skied at 12,000' in Colorado (Crested Butte). Yeah, the last couple thousand feet make a big difference. Most of the resort is between 9000' and 10,500', but if you go up top and take a couple of those black runs you'll be gasping for breath in no time. That's nothin...

Re: 1985 Graham's / Warre's / Quinta do Noval

I have 52 cases of 1985 vintage port that are stored in bond Plutus warehouses in Liverpool. The cases were brought over to the UK directly after they were released from their respective houses and have remained in bond in Liverpool ever since. I am considering selling some or all of the cases. The...

Re: One quiz at a time

The "hills" by my house are over 4,000' (~ 13,000 meters). I ride my bike up them. The mountains in the U.K. Are bumps. Hiking in the Highlands wasn't that hard for me and they weren't that tall. It's all relative to what you're used to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Indeed Andy, but I think y...

If it is below 1000 meters is it really a mountain?

990m?
A molehill or a mountain, same difference. If the name includes "fjell", it's a mountain in Norway. I have heard, however that all things are much bigger in USA.

Best so far.
