Now getting round to arranging this....
We appear to have most of the shippers between us.
I have booked B&F for Thursday 08 June - I have edited the list in order of expressions of interest. Please reconfirm that you can attend.
I will update the list after this.

Cheers

Tony

Do we yet have a date for this excellent event?
Hi Stefan
I am just updating the page for this - can you let me know if you still want to come to this tasting. Also what 67's do you have to offer ?

Tony - couple of suggestions on your attendee list:
- You have "Axel P + 1" in one place on your list, but no Axel P or AP; If "Yes please +1" from Axel meant AP and his +1 you need both in the list.
- You currently have 16 people listed as attending; not sure if you're intending to limit to 14 per usual practise or not, but if so then suggest you clearly make the last couple as reserves, otherwise people will assume they have a place.

Tony, do you know if you would rather I bring the Cockburn 67 or Fonseca G 67 for this tasting? Let me know if one of them works and I will either bring it on Wednesday or for the 55@55 tasting so it is there at the B&F. Many thanks.

First post updated.

Can those who have not confirmed please do so soon as there are some on the reserve list that need to book flights.

I am a couple of ports "lite" on my target (I am still working on these but if you have any please let me know). I can either

a) Double up on some cases - e.g. library release vs UK bottling
b) I have a small collection of 67 colhietas which I would love to share as a dessert course.

or

c) a+b

Please let me know your thoughts.

I think (b) would be a splendid addition.

My vote is (c). Let us know which vintages you're missing and we can see if we can track them down in anyone's cellar.

I have a confession though. When get myself organised this weekend to take some bottles to the B&F for this tasting, I found that I do not own any Butler Nephew 1967. I have one bottle left of Gonzalez Byass 1967 which I would happily contribute in addition to the Noval 1967.

I’d welcome a good-quality high-resolution picture of the label of GB67. Please?

Much appreciated - By fortune my GB67 may actually be a BN67. I do need to check though.

I think option c) would work well. After a hard nights tasting work the option of a few aged tawnys might go down well.
There are still a couple of months to go and I am still working on a couple of VP's.
