Please could those who have deposited 1963s at the B&F reveal what’s there. Who was deposited what?
I will be dropping off the Cr63 tomorrow around lunchtime.

I am available for whatever duties need to be performed on Tuesday. Someone please give me my orders.

This might be possible. Will confirm tomorrow.

I recall you telling me about a decade ago that you planned to keep your collection at around 2,000 bottles. 500+ case is slightly more than that :roll:

Re: Place holder for June 6/7th Vintage with an '8' theme.

Sorry chaps - I am having my second knee operation on 21 May so will still be immobile and, more significantly, in an alcohol-free state when this tasting happens.

As they say on FTLOP a lot... +1

Hadn’t realised how cheap it could be... I might build 2 at the end of the garden. Now I just need 400 cases too! 🤔
You only need one case of Port and 399 cases of water to get going 😉

My present solution requires no willpower whatsoever as I can't get to Suffolk when an overwhelming thi...

My doctor says that the uncomfortable tightness I feel in my torso is caused by multiple problems: ‘Cockburn 1912 deficiency syndrome’, ‘Cockburn 1927 deficiency disorder’, and perhaps also ‘Cockburn 1900 deficiency malady’. Surely my friends will rescue me from these terrible medical ailments? By ...

Re: The wine shed - a concept, and some horrible maths..

This is all very impressive stuff from a technical perspective, but given the apparent complexity of building the optimum wine shed I am very happy that I am paying Seckford Wines £7.30 per case per annum with insurance at replacement value included in the cost :D

There might not be a guest. We might wear our own cufflinks.
If no guests have been invited then there I would vote for it being 14 of us. Cufflinks should be compulsory.

Re: Cockburn Vertical, October 2018

Is there still stock of the '77 that was gifted to us after the tasting ten years ago? That stock was entrusted to four of our group, and is now mildly depleted. I still have one or two (I need to check), and that is the bottle I mentioned earlier - which comes free of any re-balancing of finances....
