Re: The matrix

Interestingly you have approached the problem of how to fill your cellar from the complete opposite of the way I did it. I'm not so sure we have such a different approach! As I have little in the cellar to begin with, I am starting by populating with some no brainers which if consensus on TNs is a ...

Re: BFT

My email did explain that I should take my seat promptly as places not taken up will be reallocated, so worst case, hang around the room at the appointed time and you'll likely be admitted.

Welcome to the board VMDG. You are not the first to ask such a question...if you take a look at this post , you will find some guidance on selling bottles.

Re: 1985 Taylor

Yes I agree a rogue bottle most likely. Another from the same batch was consumed recently and was very nice indeed. Which only serves to heighten the disappointment of finding this one as I did!

1985 Taylor

Decanted 11 hours. 60% opacity, reddish-brown with nice gloopy legs. Nose had quite a mixture - fig to start, giving way to cherry fruit with a hint of tobacco and menthol behind it. In the mouth immediate heat, lacking structure...a little thin, heat gives way to some acidity mid palate then into a...

Hmmmm. Would be great to meet both you and Dirk. I have a dinner scheduled for that evening, but could probably duck out early at get to TBH around 9. Could deposit a bottle at TBH earlier in the day. Ah, why not, yes please!

Re: Graham 1980 case study - Wednesday 2nd April 2014

Graham 70, if you are adhering to the thinking previously contrived for additional bottles :) My suggestion was perhaps a bit vague I realise now! I was definitely not thinking more G80, but rather for additions either have more G, like a 77 or 83, offering an opportunity to compare and contrast a l...

Is it permitted to attach an Excel spreadsheet to a post? No. If you email it to me I could host it on my website. But that would have a convoluted updated process. You have a website.
