Like Alex's idea of post-tasting tasting.
If there is an apres tasting tasting, we should arrange a warm up tasting for early birds too 😀🍷

Can you add Mike/Flash please. He is busy helping the NHS supply chain, but good for this tasting.

I've obviously been slow off the mark here and so if there is to be a reserve list then please add me to it.

@ idj123 - first reserve, statistically very likely to be promoted. In truth I was surprised at the speed of responses. But it was a very nice bottle of port.
@ flash_uk - we have your best interests at heart...

Just had a quick check online and only 91 I could find is a 12bt case at Lay & Wheeler. However it's nearly £1100 in bond...

Let's all keep looking.

Will ask C&B contact to check with Mentzendorff.
Just heard from C&B, and Mentzendorff have obtained a bottle
of the 1991 free-of-charge from Taylor's.

Being sent direct to me.

Does that complete the line-up?

Many thanks to my man at C&B - the lovely Ed Pilkington.

They’ve asked that we get some pictures and notes from the tasting. I’ve already said that won’t be a problem...

That is a very fine (and rare!) sight to see... hurrah for Taylor's, Adrian Bridge, Mentzendorff, Corney & Barrow, Ed Pilkington, and nac.

Given how pristine it is I wonder if it's come from their Library stock and has just been freshly labelled?

It’s an original style label: since the early 2000s, the name of the quinta is in large calligraphic letters rather than the capitals of this one.

Please may I be added to the reserve list, this sounds very intriguing! I have some of the 2005 Terra Feita that I can contribute if a spot opens up for me
