Thursday 2nd November - 1970

Given the time of year and that the B&F is often really busy they have asked us to book in any tastings that we want before Christmas. With this in mind and large gap between the GC tasting (10th Oct) and the BBR port walk (23rd Nov) I have enquired and booked the red room for the 2nd November.

Boot and Flogger - Red room 18:30

Suggested theme - a bottle of 1970VP sighted, no duplicates, No Hutcheson!

1) CPR - F70
2) DRL - W70
3) JDAW - D70
4) IDJ - CK70
5) BMHR - N70
6) TC - G70
7) SCD - S70
8) AJH - T 70
9) MPM Hopefully!
10)
11)
12)

Would like to but can't
1) PW
2) THRA
3) AHB
4) DRT


Current draft of the placemats:

Spoilsport-would a Cockburn be a better choice?

I'll have to pass on this one I think. Work event. Unless I can manage to get away from the event and over to the B&F by 8 perhaps.

Rather surprisingly I seem to be in London on a Thursday evening when a gaggle of 1970s are to be consumed.

Please put me down for Croft.

First post updated and booking moved to the red room so we have enough room :)

..but have 30 different '70s in the cellar, so let me know if any adoption is needed

Sadly 'the' is the operative word - I only have one bottle of Ni70, and want to be around when it's opened..

Right - mountains moved, I can now attend. Yippee!

I can bring either Calem or Gould Campbell. Which is preferred?

Calem please. I've only had that once before and that was nearly 9 years ago.

provisionally booked the green room for the 2nd November. Does this date work?

Boot and Flogger - Red room 18:30
Colour inconsistency, sir?

Sorted and first post updated to clarify - We were in the green room initially, but have now moved to the red room given the numbers

Unfortunately I can no longer make this evening which, given the theme, I am gutted about. Better move me to the "Would like to, but can't" list.

Sorry folks, the Graham 1970 is now needed to console me in my sadness at missing what will be a collection of no doubt fabulous, vintage ports.

In that case can I bring G70 instead of T70. I have a lot of the former and very few of the latter.
