Re: Messias Cachao, Wed 23 Oct 2019, at the B&F

Well, this was a delightful tasting, and I learnt a lot. Primarily, Messias Cachão have a long history of making very tasty Ports many of which we were lucky enough to try. Softer and slightly sweeter than the style we are used to in the UK: extremely tasty, elegant and easy to drink. The 1970 for m...

Re: POCAS VINTAGE VERTICAL DATE TBD

Excellent idea. Yes please.

I have no Poças :( The only time I have tried any was some older white as part of a flight in Portologia, and it was lovely.

Re: The Standard Food Order

Please, could I change my standard food order. Instead of chips/fries, could I have creamy mash. The chips aren't gluten free anymore, and oddly I see they aren't vegan or even vegetarian (which doesn't matter to me, simply an observation). Maybe they stick the chicken schnitzel in the frier? Hope t...

True. My wife sighs, while my sons and I giggle. I'm a bad influence, apparently. :)

Re: Software that makes placemats

To me the original don't look like sperm, which have a bulbous head and long wiggly tail. I prefer the original, but if there has to be a change would vote for the smallest change tolerable. I guess those that see the shapes as sperm have a wild time with Paisley Pattern. :)

Re: Port for sale by retailer

£6 is awesome, and the Warre also v good price. I didn't check what price mine scanned at (I sneaked it in to a basket bought by Mrs L, and didn't get the receipt). I think I might nip down to M&S tomorrow, thanks [emoji3].

Just to let the organiser know, today I dropped off bottles of Sandeman (Justin), Noval (Dave) and Gould Campbell (me) to stand in the Green Cellar until the tasting.
Thank you.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Crusted should be better than LBV, even unfiltered LBV. I would think that you can't go wrong at that price. To be sure, try a bottle? Certainly I'm now tempted myself. [emoji3]

Re: Port for sale by retailer

M&S have their own brand Vintage Port a third off at £18, reduced to clear. Bought the last one, a 2011 (they've also recently had 2007). Reduced to clear, rather than simply reduced, sounded ominous.
