Re: VWP Blandy’s Madeira virtual tasting 19th Nov

Re: What was your first vintage?

1970 Taylor drunk in the mid 90’s. My Grandfather bought a significant parcel and passed it down to my farther and we enjoyed it every Christmas. If I was introducing someone today I would go for one of the 94’s like Graham, Warre or Dow. These are a similar age now as to when I tried the T70 and I ...
