Suggestion: Following the theme of revisiting vintages on anniversary years, it gets a little harder with the 8's. Can I propose that we cast the net wider than usual and include anything with an '8' in the vintage. Happy to modify after feedback.

Yes please - either date.

I have a bottle with three eights in the vintage. Would that be of interest? :D

Put me in the tentative list. It'll prob be a couple months before I know or not if I can get over the pond. But I've not been there in some time and this would be a good excuse too.

Tony - let me know if you're happy for me to edit your first post, or feel free to copy and paste what I've put below.

People who have responded are:
  1. TC
  2. SCD
  3. MPM
  4. CPR
  5. IDJ
  6. DRL
  7. AHB
  8. DRT (who has a bottle with three 8's in the vintage)
  9. ADV (tentative)
  10. RLC
I note that JDAW has not yet responded! We should certainly hold a place for him, just in case he wants to be there.

I'd also like to invite John Ireland to join us as our guest (and therefore sharing his costs amongst us, although I will provide his bottle). Rumour has it that John is 50 next year and given the support we have from Seckfords and from John in particular, I think it would be nice to thank him by giving him a seat at the table. Unless anyone objects, I'll add him (and Julian) to the attendees list in due course as tentatives so we ensure there are seats at the table for both of them.

First post updated with the list of attendees, including JDAW and John Ireland.

As a bit of lobbying for when you refine the theme, I'd like to do this tasting either wholly blind so no-one knows what we are tasting (I have some black sleeve bags we could use) or wholly sighted.

Alternatively it could also be done as a slightly more structured theme where attendees drop you a PM to offer a selection of bottles which meet the theme and you choose which one appears at the event. That way you are able to ensure there are no accidental duplicates or that we don't end up with 14 bottles of 1998 Senhora da Ribeira. (If you would like me to do the coordination, I'd be happy to volunteer.)

Hi everyone, happy new year!
If there is still a space, can I please join you for this event? Otherwise please add me to the reserve list.
Many thanks.

Sadly, for family reasons John Ireland is not able to commit to attend a tasting in June this early in the year. He has graciously thanked us for the invitation but has declined.

It may be worth asking again a couple of weeks before the event, if there is still a seat free.

I can start to put this together.

Perhaps we can firm up the theme on the 18th - if anyone not attending the 82 tasting has a view on the format/theme please make your thoughts known.

I am afraid I need to withdraw as I will be in Scotland that week... unless there is any interest in changing to the week after? ;-)

Sorry chaps - I am having my second knee operation on 21 May so will still be immobile and, more significantly, in an alcohol-free state when this tasting happens.
