Re: August emergencies

Sorry guys - I will have to excuse myself from this.

I just got back from hols today and there is just too much to do on Monday. Hopefully, I will catch up later in the month.

I only have one half bottle of this for the tasting - are you able to put yours in also to make a sensible quantity?

I also may have a few others. Confirmed Bottles Noval Cockburn Taylor's Fonseca Croft Skeffington Nie...

Re: PLACEHOLDER: Quinta do Cachao Vertical

I and one or two others at last night's tasting think that September is still the best month for this vertical and so what about earlier in the month-say 18th? Might have to kick this into Jan / Feb 2019. The Messias guys are a little busy early September and after that I am tied up until the New Y...

1867 has several possibilities, most certainly Cockburn, Croft, Dow, Feuerheerd, Graham, Martinez, Sandeman, and Tuke Holdsworth. Perhaps also Gould Campbell, Offley, and Rebello Valente.
Sadly the 1867 has failed! It was a long punt as the level was LS.
I have brought it along anyway.
