Virtual Tasting #8 - Tuesday 30th June?

Post by AHB » 08:28 Thu 18 Jun 2020

Hopefully this date will suit Mike and he will be happy to host us on his Zoom account again, but this is as much a placeholder as a firm arrangements.

Anyone who would like to take part in a proper online tasting please send me an email with your address and I will send you a sample bottle containing some Port planned to arrive a day or two before 30th June. Those who sent me their addresses on Tuesday do not need to do so again but anyone else who would like to take part, please do as this list will act as my checklist.

I'll ask for a contribution to cover the costs of postage, which I estimate will be about £5 in the UK or $10 outside the UK.

People (and whether they have asked to be sent a sample bottle - Tony is the only person who wants to take part in the Zoom call but hasn't said he'd like a sample; I will assume he does for the purposes of admin):

Charles, Zak, Neil, Glenn - thank you, emails received

Julian - you are a pain, but I have emailed myself with the details from your PM. Please, no-one else PM on this topic but email instead (using the email link on TPF is fine)

Simon - I'm sure I do, but please send me an email with your address since I intend to use the emails as my checklist to make sure I don't miss anyone out where they have said they want to be included

This will be fun, and it will be interesting to see how a small sample bottle holds up to trans-Atlantic shipping!

It seems we have 17 people who would like a sample sent to them. Be prepared for small samples!

I'm nearing the end of my young LBV tasting horizontal-ish (give or take 2 years) . Will likely open a Fonseca 2014 LBV.

I am vacillating between a Kopke Colheita 1977 and a Churchill 1982. Either of them will have to really outperform to come close to last week's C&B bottling of Warre 1970.

I’m leaning towards something from the ’80s. Maybe a GC or a T.
