Perhaps between you and Julian you can work out if my case of Liceiras '93 is alive or dead without the need for me to open the box? :lol:
If you are selling it you should claim it is alive.If you are buying you should claim that it is dead. If you open it, you’ll find out for sure that it’s dead.

Re: The Book, ‘Port Vintages’, is for sale

Only a shame that the company packed the precious books in a very very simple cardboard box with no protection of the sides and corners... The fulfilment company have acknowledged the problem, but tell me that it affects only a small number of packages. I’m pleased the books survived despite the pa...

Berry, pages 75-76: No, never recork wine if it can be avoided; however much care is exercised, the old wine must, perforce, be exposed to the air, much of the concentrated “ethers” (the beauty sleep, as it were, of the wine) escape, with the result that the win...

I've been a member on FTLOP for sometime now and saw Julian talking about TPF so I thought I would join. Seems like a good place for some UK meetups which I will endeavor to attend! As for me, I'm an unlucky '93 kid (but have managed to get the Quinta Das Liceiras '93) and I'm in my final year of m...

I thought I'd nudge this thread as I used my garrotte a couple of times this Autumn and it is still working very well.
A month or so ago I used Simon Gandy’s garrotte, successfully.
