And the Graham's Crusted in Sainsbury's has just shifted from 1998 to 2002.

Managed to pick up one of the T85s yesterday also at £40 when passing another Tesco. Noticed they also had the Graham's Crusted at £12 instead of £18, but that it was the 2006 rather than the (recently stocked) 1998.

Would suggest that they've also run out out of the 2002 which they were stocking subsequent to the 1998.

Having picked up a couple of dozen of the Sandeman 2003 Vau Vintage from Tesco thought my port buying was done for the month. Today a friend offered me some bottles found when an elderly relative moved into a home. they are 2 bottles Dow's 1955, 1 bottle Croft 1963, 1 bottle Dow's reserve "matured in wood and bottled in 1973"(LBV?), 1 bottle Taylor's select port(gone to kitchen cupboard and also a bottle of 1962 Chateau Certan Pomerol.

Definitely a story worth telling!
The bottle plus invoice and bin label was bought last Saturday at Tennants - on a rather large detour on a trip to go walking in Wales.

It's now sitting next to me in a hotel room in Newport - Pembrokeshire..

The invoice is quite faded but otherwise in good condition, however it may not scan well and has the pipe's duty 'ticket' attached - which I don't want to fold back in the scanner to show the text underneath for fear of damaging it.

When I get back I will get some help from my mother - who is much better at reading old copperplate handwriting than I am - and prepare a full transcript..

12 Offley Boa Vista 1994.

Everyone has their price, it is said, and 9% off appears to be mine. I had been succesfully resisting this for quite a while, and then Nickolls and Perks have a sale.

I bought this from N&P some time ago at the pre-sale price, which i thought was attractive at the time. Having since tasted it, i am very happy with the price paid and I think yours was a real bargain. Exceptionally good value for money.

Thank you both for the tip - I have bought a case, it seems very reasonable and I suspect they have a fair depth of stock as they still listed the 12 bottle case as available post purchase... :-)
