Thanks for help Christopher out Alex. Happy to adopt the Ni if that's OK with Ian.
Ok with me Mike and to note that I also have a bottle of the Secundum.

Re: Tuesday 25th February 2020 - Emergency @ 67 Pall Mall

Yes, chapeau to Neil for arranging with the range and quality of the Ports befitting the venue-a return visit (with a tad more space) would be very much in order! Food was of an enviable standard and the service also. As has been mentioned, the T80 was by far the best example I had drunk and has cau...

Re: Blind tasting scoring

Is there any mileage in trying to restrict it to one fully declared vintage either side? Would clearly need a consensus on ‘fully declared vintages ‘ I appreciate!

Re: Emergency (@ 67 Pall Mall) - Tues 25 Feb 2020

My bottle decanted at 6.45am. Have high hopes for this one. Will be a little held up as a result of a fatality on the line.

Re: Tuesday 28 January - Blind Bottles at B&F

This was a nice tasting and I came within a whisker of guessing the GC97 rather than the GC94 as maybe for the first time ever I immediately recognised a flavour profile (dark chocolate cherry); it's only taken me over 10 years! Interesting to see the evolution of the T85 which is going to be worth ...

Re: BBR VP Tasting-Tuesday 22 September 2020

And if anyone is looking to secure in the meantime suggest that we try and track down the 83 as that currently looks the impediment to having a ' straight flush'.

First post also updated to include bottles currently held (Alex and Tony, you both mention others and so can you clarify please). At present, it looks as though we...

Re: Weds 5th Feb 2020 - Bring a bottle to share

Confirmed to Organiser by PM but unable to make it (even though in plain sight I hadn’t noticed it was on a Weds and Wednesday’s are generally difficult for me). Enjoy!

Re: BBR VP Tasting-Tuesday 22 September 2020

Indeed. And we have additionally determined since that BBR47 is Fonseca, and BBR55 is Graham. And BBR75 is clearly QH, either in addition to GC (if both existed) or GC is an error in their list for '75. I was not aware of the other pre-47 vintages, so that is interesting and useful additional infor...

I have Hutchison and Barros of the tier 3 Ports. Mike, would it be helpful to paste the list of the tier 3 Ports into the top of this thread so that we can more readily view?

We won't have full catering but there will be plenty of cheese and charcuterie and maybe some wine th...
