Interesting to see the evolution of the T85 which is going to be worth ...

Re: Weds 5th Feb 2020 - Bring a bottle to share

Confirmed to Organiser by PM but unable to make it (even though in plain sight I hadn’t noticed it was on a Weds and Wednesday’s are generally difficult for me). Enjoy!

We are full; reserve list started. First post also updated to include bottles currently held (Alex and Tony, you both mention others and so can you clarify please). At present, it looks as though we are missing 60, 83, 91 and 94. Taking Charles's suggestion I am tempted to extend the tasting to up t...

Re: BBR VP Tasting-Tuesday 22 September 2020

Indeed. And we have additionally determined since that BBR47 is Fonseca, and BBR55 is Graham. And BBR75 is clearly QH, either in addition to GC (if both existed) or GC is an error in their list for '75.

Re: A 1970 horizontal, Flight 5, Thurs 8 October 2020

I have Hutchison and Barros of the tier 3 Ports. Mike, would it be helpful to paste the list of the tier 3 Ports into the top of this thread so that we can more readily view?

Emergency-Tuesday 28 January 2020

I am in town for a late afternoon meeting and given that my train fare is therefore paid, was wondering whether there is any thirst for a blinded bring a bottle tasting at the B&F this night (appreciating the fact that there is another tasting the following week)?
