Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

I’m afraid I have a last minute podcast recording commitment that may mean I cannot make this start time (and I haven’t been able to get my hands on the Sandeman yet, so if I can’t get it today then I’ll be drinking something else anyway). If there are no objections I’d still like to join, even if ...

Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

It seems like a Warre or Sandeman LBV are the most available options. Thoughts?

Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

Could folks make suggestions for the drinking theme? Needs to preferably be something people can get their hands on between now and Weds 20th. This might be tricky for the likes of Will who is in a different country!

What about SW70, which can be purchased from Davy's Online?

Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

Our next virtual tasting is on Wednesday 20 May. Some changes for this session: - attendee numbers won't be capped. We can split people into virtual breakout rooms which allows us to have a couple of rooms with fewer people if required - a suggestion has been floated that we set a drinking theme e.g...

Re: VWP and b.f.t. Quevedo tasting

UPDATE : After testing during last night's zoom, it was decided NOT to run a parallel zoom due to various issues including practicality of listening to both Oscar and each other, and the potential for Oscar's audio being relayed through mics unless everyone is muted or uses headphones.

Re: Sunday May 3rd - my 60th birthday..

My father is deep quarantining, so the selection available to me falls short of that required for the occasion. Nonetheless, the occasional will be marked. Zoom? We can arrange (unless the wife’s account is being used for another thing at the same time). Happy to set up a Zoom if required. Happy bi...

The format will be as before, we will combine the verbal delivery of a tasting note, with guesses from the others. This should allow us to cycle quickly through the guesses and spend more time chatting. Wh...

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

It would be better if Filtered were the default and Unfiltered declared on the lable and explained on the reverse...needs decanting. The non-experts will be fine if they grab a bottle of filtered, and if they grab Unfiltered then they have insturctions.

Gah, looks like I'm the unlucky #10. Well, put me on the wait list if there is one!
Glenn, I’ll send you the invite anyway, and feel free to drop in with some port. I know you’ll likely not be able to spend the whole time with us as it’s work time for you.

Does anybody else need two rows on the guessing page? Rephrased, who else is bringing two?
I have decanted for tomorrow, all seems well, so unlikely to double up!
