Apologies if I missed it but does anyone fancy a small ( Maximum of 6 ) horizontal of 1920 @100.
Dates/admin to be decided if there is any interest. I would prefer to do it somewhere we could eat outside, perhaps a long lunch rather than the usual evening affair.

Yes, would love to, but unfortunately have no 1920s.

As Neil, I have the interest but not the '20. Closest I get is an unknown '22 in very good condition; I could rub away the lower part of the final digit and claim it as a "believed '20" but should probably save it for a couple of years instead.

A tentative yes - but depends on whether the lockdown tightens.
Have most shippers - duplicates in S, T, C and an unknown Corney and Barrow.

I had a chat with Christopher a few days ago, offering to take over the organisation of this tasting. However, we came to the conclusion that with the current increased rate of spread, we are better to arrange it at a date in the future.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
