Draft of the placemats updated (Cockburn removed; Dow and Warre added; some reassigned). Please, somebody check.

Now looks like I can make it for around 5pm on Tuesday. I’ll print the placemats and bring them along.

Given that the placemats have the actual bottles on them, I assume we are ditching any previous idea for blinding?

JDAW - one minor amendment with the placemats. IDJ appears twice. Clearly Ian would be delighted to have two placemats of port to consume 😁

I will be a little late. Can anyone else print please?
Yes I think semi blind is an admin step to far!-:))
Many thanks

NickA: I’ve assumed that you are right handed, and put your initials as “NA”. Please say whether there are more initials, and if there are, what they are. Thank you.

Sorry Ian, I tried for you, but we were rumbled.

You owe me anyway!

Prompted by looking at the placements-what glassware is used/provided (any good?) and do we get to get one glass for each port?

ISO-type tasting glasses, and yes one of the reasons we use Davy's regularly is that they are able to supply sufficient glassware (in quantity, quality and cleanliness). Provided the organiser lets them know our needs in advance, they ensure they have the glassware available and ready for us; we do have one glass per port, usually.

Graham '94 decanted 2pm; very fine sediment. Looks and smells great.

Churchill' 94 decanted 2pm; huge quantity of medium sized sediment. Slightly tired colour and smell; we shall see.

Rightly or wrongly, my bottles were decanted last night. As my meeting has finished, I should be there before 5.
