Yes I certainly know that :-) Not much I can do, it being a work laptop.

Re: Small 1966 Horizontal on 22 of April

But the problem is clearly at my end...when I now load the pdf on my iPhone it shows the version you are describing...something odd with IE on my laptop.

Am seeing Niepoort bottom right on page 1, and two crosses middle of page 2, and Sandeman nowhere.

Re: ’60 versus ’63: placemats updated

Who is to print? I can print. Is decanting still happening at Rob's place? And what does that mean for arrival time of juice to TBH? I hope to be able to get to TBH for about 1745. I should be able to drop off printed material before then if required. Someone pls advise. EDIT: I've just remembered ...

How about Whitham and Company Wines Limited, see here (in Phil's own database :lol: )

Re: Small 1966 Horizontal on 22 of April

Tom is bringing my Graham 66, but I have a work dinner starting at 7 which I will be ducking out of at the earliest opportunity. So should be with you all by 9 at the latest. I can help pour at 4.30 if that helps? And can print if that also helps.

I would also like to attend. Will look at what I have in the way of G70...I think nothing, but will endeavour to acquire some otherwise would need to adopt.

In the mouth, sweetness and sugar, just a hint of fruit, strawberry, before a hot finish and an alcohol bite at the end. Very enjoyable, but I don't think this bottle had much more to give in the future. Th...

Only half the bottle was "diluted", and the QA taste was very promising. Might go back and buy the other 4 on the shelf!
