Re: Tue 5th June - Vintage with an '8' theme.

The vintage we are missing, of course, is 1888, which was declared by Offley and by Royal Oporto.

Sorry Tom, I don’t understand. Your posted a list of vintages you have — a list not including 1966. and you now have 1966? Fine: I’ll assume a recent purchase. Please confirm my interpretation.

Re: Tue 15th May 2018, Port Fit for a (New) Duchess, at The B&F

The glass on the right-ish far-bottom, not quite on the placemats , was a Sandeman 1968 left over from The BFT . The S68 had been double-decanted in Portugal about nine days before. http://www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180515_glasses_01.png http://www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180515_glasses_02.png http://w...

Re: Tue 15th May 2018, Port Fit for a (New) Duchess, at The B&F

Some bottles were off, but the magnums and the Fonseca 1970 showed wonderfully. As did, amongst others, O60, Cr60, and F60. As did the 1982 tawny bottled for the occasion.

The evening was splendid, the four toasts being made by our newest citizen.

May I ask that a treasure trove of pre-poured (or at least decanted) Port not long be left unguarded?
