That is fair, and why this thread was re-awakened.

Krohn is rarely seen in this sceptred isle. Precedent not so important. People please vote from: Kh
? Second preferences allowed. (And don’t dismiss WK
on grounds of geekiness — port tastings are for geeks. C.f.
= Borges & Irmão.)
Glenn E. wrote:Cr/CR doesn't look like a pair to me. It looks like Ports from two different producers - the first Croft, and the second being some unknown shipper with two words or possibly some new "C" shipper with an "R" quinta. But I will go with the group if Cr/CR is ultimately the decision.
Side-by-side, it’s a splendid pair.

All these already agreed and done. No further discussion necessary.

We disagree. If there’s a strongly-held consensus against me, I’ll fold, but it needs to be strong as KL plenty clear, and supported by brevity and precedent.

This omission to be fixed, but ideally more concisely. Would Nv
be acceptable? (Is there risk of confusion with Quinta da Fonte Nova (FN
?) or with any of the Quinta do Noval possibilities — Noval Silval, Quinta do Noval Quinta do Marco, Quinta do Noval Silval (NS
?), Quinta do Noval Quinta do Silval?) But NNSC
11 is just too long for where it needs to go.
Glenn E. wrote:As previously noted, there are numerous other small things I would change that I have not bothered to bring up because they are not significant enough to warrant discussion. Kr over Kh was the most significant of those.
Now is the chance. Or hold thy peace.
Also changing one name. GB
= Gonzalez Byass rather than González Byass
, as the Port was never labelled with the accent even though the modern Sherry company does use it.
