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

Just had a Delaforce on friday. Very nice drinker, probably one of the best Delaforces.

Need to check date for a bit.

Re: Graham's Malvedos 1968

Noval LBs can be very nice, since they were made as a kind of little more filtered Crusted Ports. Bottling around the 80s I would assume.

Dont store these for too long.

Re: 5th November 2064 - a Quevedo Salmanazar..

Count me in, Tom. I have Rozes 1995 in Magnums.

Happy to spend a O-PORT-UNIDADE 5 Liter bottle 2013, wherever that fits in.

Best

But you have to drink it now and then to figure that this is bold.

For me the 11 NN could be the worthy successor of the 63 and it will be fantastic to see this maturing over the next decades.

Re: Possible fake 1927 VP in Belgium auction this weekend

I have seen these bottles at auction, too, and did not bid, because: - RCV is not known for their prestigious old Vintage Ports - "Matured in wood" rather shows that they are old Colheitas - The shape and design of the bottle shows that the bottle is quite old, making this a Colheita with little tim...
