Re: Replacing corks

You think so? I'd be curious to have that hypothesis confirmed LGTrotter, thought Interesting! My hypothesis being that if you have, say, a 1 in 20 chance of a cork being tainted in the general cork population then if you have put 2 corks in one bottle during its lifetime then you have a 1 in 10 ch...

Splendid evening - many thanks Charles for the excellent organisation and to Charles and Tony for the decanting and pouring labours on the day. The Ovens is certainly the best room for hosting > 14 attendees. Plenty of space at the table and behind chairs. Not quite so useful when you have numerous ...

Also, to attract buyers here you might wish to mention where you are — or, more relevantly, where is the bottle. UK? USA? In either case, roughly where within?

Julian - one small amendment proposed if you have a moment to make changes to these placemats, could the D and T positions be swapped. This will leave TFP ports on page 1 and SFE ports across the other pages.
Done.
Thank you!

Re: Thursday 9 March 2017, 80s Majors Matrix

In the first post are pictures of the current draft of the placemats . This first draft has three pages, each of one vintage. An alternative would be 2½ A4 pages, each column being one shipper, so saving some table space. Or 15 could be squeezed on one A3, shrinking the radius to 118.978pt (from th...

Re: 77@40 from Magnum and Tappit Hen - Wed 1st Feb 2017

Then the placemats need to be altered. Charles? Edit: no QH. Placemats updated. Which changes the amount of trimming of the glasses pages: now ≈47.0mm ≈1.85″. I’ll remove the QH links after the tasting. Test print of placemats completed - they look very fine. Trimming of the A3...will be attempted ...

Re: Thursday 9 March 2017, 80s Majors Matrix

We have several weeks until this tasting - could I ask those bringing bottles to try and get them to the B&F some time in advance. Not the end of the world if you can't, but always helps improve the prospects of a better showing if they can rest a while. Will drop my two bottles in next week Thanks...
