it's pretty noticeable the amount of shelf space given over to rum, gin and vodka compared to the fortifieds.
Same story in my local Sainsbury's - half a shelf for fortified, 8 bays of 4 shelves for spirits.

Re: Port House abbreviations

Db - Douro Boys The ‘B’ has to be a capital, which would clash with Dow Bomfim. So I’d prefer “DBy” or “DrB”. What about DoB? DBy makes me initially think Dow <something>. I know that doesn’t automatically follow...we have DG for Duff Gordon, but DoB avoids any question? As does DrB or course...

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Ocado has Noval 10YO with one third off, at 16.99. Waitrose Cellar has it 20% off at 19.99. I’ve had this a lot recently and really like it.
