Plenty of adoption options, and good to have two offers of '94 already, as I don't have that one.

Vintages: we are looking for 1830, ’34, ’37, ’40, ’42, ’44, ’47, ’51, ’53, ’58, ’61, ’63, ’66, ’68, ’70, ’72, ’73, ’74, ’75, ’78, ’81, ’84, ’85, ’87, ’88, ’90, ’92, ’94, ’96, ’97, 1900, ’02, ’04, ’08, ’10, ’12, ’19, ’20, ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25, ’27, ’29, ’31, ’33, ’35, ’42, ’50, ’54, ’55, ’60, ’62, ’63, ’66, ’67, ’70, ’72, ’75, ’77, ’80, ’82, ’83, ’85, ’87, ’89, ’94, ’95, ’97, ’99, 2000, ’03, ’07, and ’11.

If seventy-four would be too many magnums, maybe we could omit a few of the youngsters? Or, for a few, have measly-portion single bottles?

Yes please.

I would have brought the 1830 but I drank it last night whilst watching the Eurovision pre-event show. Instead I'll offer the 1963. Or (underlined for JDAW's attention) I could offer a 2000 if we want to go that young.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
