Re: Warm-up for the BFT: Something nice from the 60s

We are flying in from Sweden on the morning of the tasting. We think it might be better to decant in the morning before the flight rather than mixing the sediment during the flight. We will bring the original bottle in any case. Does any of you have experience on what would be the best option? Plea...

Re: Warm-up for the BFT: Something nice from the 60s

Gentlemen, Axel asked me to look into the glass issue and despite short notice we can hire glasses for this event (Riedel port stems). The cost split per person for 7 glasses each is 13.2£. Please confirm urgently that you are happy us using the glass service as the glasses in the RAF club are not o...

Crusted Port Wine Malvedos 1958 in Magnum format

Hi, bought this Magnum quite a few years back and always wondered if it is genuine or fake. First was real Crusted Malvedos ever made? Bt looks genuine from the era and despite slightly glui wax level is still just i.n. and fine, bright clear red color. If anyone has any further ideas or information...

A very good decision.
There might not be a guest. We might wear our own cufflinks.

My notes suggest that the '75 blossoms after a long decant. Have never seen a Cockburn '17.. agreed; stupid me drank up too early the sixpack of Ck 75 you let go after the Cockburns sale before Cockburns was sold to the Symmingtons... :roll: I do not think we should look out for a 17 but a 12 which...

Re: Thu 15 Feb 2018, at the B&F: Mr. Wolfgang Starz

Thank you all for the great evening! Having now become a British citizen I am looking forward to many more tastings. Also our experiment with the extra ordering of the Steaks paid off. I think we should do this again. Despite the Steaks were always good at the B&F this was a step up worth paying for...

Re: 1960 Fonseca

I think to say the F60 needs drinking up is not correct as it is currently in such a nice "plateau" for drinking. Despite I agree taste wise it will not improve from here and it is in comparison to the 63, 66 and 70 a bit lighter in structure and finish in terms of complexity and fragrance of the po...

Re: 1963 Fonseca

The F63 improved throughout the evening which indicates the port should have been opened and decanted much earlier. Aside the quite closed up and therefore restrained mouthfeel the excellent structure, complexity and flavor profile shows through. Ripe Cherry and spice flavors that make the port very...

Re: 1966 Fonseca

The decant time was 4:30 AM after being opened the night before at 9:30PM. On your observation "a touch hollow mid-palate" I could agree with but I consider this rather a strength given it is still a port which is far to young. If I had not opened it so early you would have tasted rough edges you ca...
