1955 vintage for sale + a few more

Post by StevenHicks » 12:03 Mon 30 May 2016

I love port and long ago put some cases and odd bottles into a friend's cellar not so far from me in south London. However I then developed a health condition that makes me unwell if I drink it :cry: I have had to start 'unearthing it' because he is looking to sell the house.
The first to come out are:
6 x Sandemans '55
2 x Dow '55
1 x Cockburn '55
1 x Taylor '55
2 x Q do Vesuvio '91
1 x Offley '66 = '83
1 x Q do Noval '90
1 x Q do Vargellas '84
Level: The Sandeman bottles levels:
1: Top of royal crest on label (this is the one with a grubby label,because it has had no paper and straw cover unlike the rest)
3: bttm neck1: high shoulder
1: 1/2" above label
Dow: just below bttm neck
Cockburn: high shoulder
Taylor : high shoulder, as are the other vintages
I do have pictures of the 1955s but they are apparently too large to post on here so I am somewhat stuck!
If anyone is interested in any of these please let me know - they need someone who will appreciate them as much as I intended to do!
