Well the good news is that, finally, M & S have extended the sale to Dublin stores. Unfortunately Martin Moran MW (writes in Irish Times) tipped off his buddies and they triolleyed out quantities of 2007, 2011 and Q da C. Stilll got 4 2011’s (now have a bottle for the 2051 tasting) and 2 20 year old tawnies, all at €9.00 each.
Many of us will have the M&S11. Other 11s will be needed — but there’s plenty of time to acquire some.

Waitrose and Waitrose cellar have the "get 25% off 6 or more bottle" offer back. The offer thankfully still includes Port. The higher end Ports are still fairly overpriced but there are some deals to be had. The new Waitrose Crusted from Symmington at £20 (£15 with offer) seems tempting.

Waitrose have got some keen prices on some of their Port in the run up to Christmas — the Sandeman 2014 LBV for under £13 caught my eye.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017

How is 2014 for LBV? I've seen a few around but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Has anyone tried any or have any recommendations?

Rich - I’ve tried it, and I like it. 2011 was better, but the 2014 has a nice greenness to the tannins that give a delicious extra bite to the wine. It’s also a wine which I would be happy to cellar for 20-30 years!

Does anyone happen to know if the Waitrose Quinta de la Rosa 2015 is the same wine as the estate bottling?

According to a very good source it is a different blend, made with input from Waitrose. If interested Ocado have it listed for £25 and not the £35 at Waitrose thus when 25% off as part of a buy 6 promotion it is great value.

Corney & Barrow has just listed 6-bottle cases of 2001 and 2002 TV at £192 and £162 (inc VAT) respectively.

There's one case of the 2001 and several of the 2002.
