Re: Tue 13 Nov 2018 — an emergency.

You puny creatures. With my mystical powers I have been able to fool you all. You think these are different Ports — they are not. They are the same Port but from different times. Fonseca 1985 that is 20 years old, 33 years old, 40 years old and beyond. Truly, this is Monkey Magic. Now leave me be. I...

Re: Tue 13 Nov 2018 — an emergency.

Port should be brown and smell of Monkey poo, not this dark red stuff that smells of coffee beans before they pass through my digestive tract and are roasted for the pleasure of mankind. Sometimes they are even washed before roasting. But ...

Re: Thu 14th March 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Theme: Broadbent , he supplying 2000, ’03, ’07, ’11, ’15. Perhaps from us also 1994 and 1997 (which would be complete); and, numbers permitting, a second course of older Ports from our cellars. Do you have any guidance to give as to the theme for the second course? Should we all bring an extra bott...

Ah, back to the traditional "one quiz at a time" question. The monkey is clearly drinking Graham Crusted 2013 recently purchased from Sainsbury.
Graham - correct
Crusted 2013 - wrong
Sainsbury - wrong, but not far away

My publicist says that this is my best picture and has asked whether or not it could appear in The Book, preferably as the Frontispiece and signed by the author?

Re: Mon 13 August: Emergency

Monkey claims 2 points for 1970+Niepoort+Warre+Fonseca.

There are bonus points available to anyone at the annex tasting who can guess which Port Monkey is drinking.
