Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

Post by CPR 1 » 10:46 Mon 03 Apr 2017

Thread poster changed from uncle tom to CPR 1 on Thu 07 Sep 2017 by jdaw1.

With the Xmas bash pencilled in for Dec 21st, how about a repeat of the last two years, with a tasting on the prior Tuesday and an elegant luncheon on the Wednesday at Ottos?

With 67@50 already scheduled, 77@40 seems a logical choice. I (Tom) have seventeen '77s, although I would prefer not to be the sole supplier.

Are people game? - or is there a better idea out there..? As the dates are hard on Xmas, I think we should get our reservations in pronto..

Now confirmed:-

1) Tom
2) MPM - Taylor
3) Axel
4) CPR
5) SCD
6) AHB - Cockburn (Old)
7) JDAW
8) DRL - Graham
9) TC
10) PW
11) IDJ - Pocas
12) WS1
13) WS1 +1
14) EDN - Niepoort (single, 1 litre and Magnum)

Reserves
1) CMAG

Thus the next question is which bottles and who is bringing what? As a starter for 10 assuming we are 14 how about we aim for:-

1. Fonseca
2.Taylor - MPM
3. Dow
4. Warre
5. Graham - DRL
6. Gould Campbell
7. Quarles Harris
8. Sandeman
9. Niepoort - EDN (single, 1 litre and Magnum)
10. Offley
11. Delaforce
12. Smith Woodhouse
13. Cockburn (old) - AHB
14. Croft
15. Pocas - IDJ
16. Ferreira
17. Calem
18. Kopke

I'd never say no to a '77 horizontal Tom! I am though likely to find it difficult to pack too much in during that week before Christmas week. I'll hang back for now and if the date gets off the ground then I'll stand by as a reserve!

I would be in, hoping there might be something in between the 19th and 21st.

I have also been considering a deeper horizontal of the 1977's. We had a limited range at the 77 Magnum and Tappit Hen tasting in February and I would like to taste a wider range side by side, thus I am in whatever the date and can contribute most shippers.

We have the Gould Campbell tasting in October, but November is empty at the moment I believe. On balance I would suggest this might fit better in November so as not to get overshadowed with rushing about before Xmas?

I would like to come along whenever this maybe held, but at this stage would need to look at adoption if possible.

While I do very much like the '77s and would thoroughly enjoy an evening dedicated to the vintage, I think it would be remiss to point out that we could also choose to do 2007 @ 10, 1997 @ 20, 1987 @ 30, 1957 @ 60, 1937 @ 80, 1927 @ 90, 1917 @ 100, 1897 @ 120, 1887 @ 130 or 1847 @ 170.

On balance, I think 1977 @ 40 a sensible proposal - I'm in.

Worryingly, it seems that I have drunk many of my unusual '77s. On hand and in bottle format I only have the usual suspects (Cockburn, Dow, Graham, Warre).

A great idea. Yes please. November easier, but I hope to come whatever date decided.

Yes please - another go at the 77's would be fun. November would work better for me

The timing is deliberately set to tie in with the Xmas bash and the 'elegant lunch' on the intervening day.

The grouping of three events is appreciated by those travelling from further afield.

I can proffer a Taylor. And a Smith Woodhouse for adoption.

I don't have Pocas or Kopke, but can provide any of the others. I also have Morgan.

Charles, Can you put me down for this please (for some reason I haven't done so before)? I have the Pocas (amongst others) if required.

I could bring Warre or Gould Campbell — or a bottle of Cockburn 1977 which pre-dates the recent library release by SFE.

The 'old' Cockburn 77 would be great. Thank you.

Can you please add the other Wolfgang as my guest to the attendee list too? We will find a suitable contribution to the tasting from him ;-))

regards
