eleven bottles is too many for five people

Call me a big girl’s blouse if you must, but eleven bottles is too many for five people. Even assuming that the dodgy 1920 is undrinkable, ten is OTT. We should cull one or two.

1960 Warre Vintage Port

Four bottles of port were brought on holiday, for a Warre vertical with a friend and friends of his. My drinking chum fell ill, so the family decided to spread the vertical over several days, starting with the 1960, the oldest (presumably so the 1963 1977 1985 could age a bit more). There will be ph...

three dots (‟...”) are used instead of a true ellipsis chara

At least this thread doesn’t list all the posts in which three dots (‟...”) are used instead of a true ellipsis character (“…”). Doing that that really would keep me busy.

Flattery

Any. A trip with you folks would be extremely:
  • Educational;
  • Fun;
  • Alcoholic.
That can’t be a bad combination.

Oh, I almost forgot.
  • Ungrammatical (as in “IF there was a TPF harvest tour...† rather than “If there were a TPF harvest tour…†). :-)

TN list: what to add?

Things that could be added to the list of TNs:
  • Link to the shipper’s website?

  • Tasting date? (Only if someone is willing to help extract them from each thread?)

“Will it be easy to maintain?†, asked Conky

Will it be easy to maintain? Alex will email me data updates from time to time (monthly?), and then it’ll be a modest fraction of an hour to put the data in the right form. Although Alex did the original sorting, should the links list be given Prime spot as a sticky at the top of the section. Agreed.
