Re: Fabulous Cigars

Cohiba Limited edition 2006. 67 minutes of sheer pleasure. A gift from a very good friend some years ago. It has languished in my humidor just waiting for me starting my holidays 2017, and tonight it was finally put out of its misery. Joined by a small glass of Highland Park NAS Cs on the terrace, ...

There should perhaps be an analogy to the Bishop of Norwich in this thread. :wink:

A bit OT, but do you think T09 will outlive T11?

I think T09 has the potential to be one of those VPs that emerges as a true classic. It is an exceptionally dark and intense wine.
Thank you, uncle tom.

Planning a big party for 2109?


I'm quietly confident that the '09s (and the Taylor in particular) have the depth and integrity to show very well, come their centenary..
A bit OT, but do you think T09 will outlive T11?

Re: The Port Forum Babies and their Vintages

For the grandson, 2013, I bought 6 bottles of Quinta do Vesuvio, but the Norwegian Wine Monopoly (allways capital letters, in reverence) sent me single bottles. I contacted the importer about the possibility of getting a wooden case for them, and this september he emailed that he had it. When I went...

Re: What have you got open this weekend?

Yesterday I opened a bottle of Cálem Vintage Port 1985, and tonight I am finishing it off.
A very nice port, and that is a pleasant thought when it is the most abundant VP in my cellar.

Cálem Vintage Port 1985, just decanted, and the glass is very black. I can however see the light from a torch through the neck.

I think it is appropriate, to make this a little easier, to point out that the pine cones in question are not from Pinus Ponderosa, but from Pinus Sylvestris.

Yesterday I sat and observed a squirrel consuming seeds from pine cones.
How long time did it on average, during 15 minutes, use per cone?
