Yes. Hypothetically, what port might he have?

And am looking forward to it. :)

PW + G70: splendid.
AHB + SW63: splendid.

Placemats updated (first post). Some complication because of AHB’s foretold tardiness coupled with the placemats planned appearance in an attempt at the cover photograph for The Book. Somebody please check for obvious errors.

Placemats seem fine to me (and I see that JDAW is bringing a second bottle). Great to see that Phil is fit enough to make a return and that Alex can also join us. We can also now more justify the booking for 10 persons with the B&F!

My bottle was decanted at 6.45am and first impressions were favouarable.I expect to be there at about 6.30pm and will also be bringing a N58 and N60 for depositing in relation to the Noval tasting (although if we get especially thirsty...)

Chaps - there is a bottle of SW63 awaiting your arrival at the B&F. This is one of the only two bottles I have ever seen offered for sale and is included in tonight's line up in recognition of the fact that Phil helped me to track it down.

However, it's not in great shape and I am a little concerned, but I have a cunning plan if it proves to be undrinkable.

Would some kindly person please decant the bottle when they arrive. Please push the cork in to decant the bottle so that I can bag it out later.

Thanks.
