Please keep it. In 2018 we may want do do a big 1958 tasting for which this could be perfect. Alternatively for a Vargeallas tasting as well.... :wink: :lol:

uups we may have to do a 1948 tasting too......... :D :nirvana:

Ahhh, I have deciphered your quote on second reading; Initially I thought this was a kinky reference to a well-known heiress. I am now both enlightened and deflated, though looking forward to Jun 3rd.

Thought I could change it this time, but without success again. Almost nothing left in Portugal of 1958. Uncle Tom is kindly allowing me to adopt a Fonseca Guimaraes from him.

Wolfgang: please could you make, carefully, an accurate list of who is bringing what. There is an FG coming from Dries via Paris, and another from Tom.

A small task which needs to be accomplished at this event. Sample bottles need to be distributed by Julian to certain attendees to allow them to take a sample from the bottle(s) they are bringing to the 97 Maturity Assessment on 16 June (said bottles to be decanted the previous evening where possible). Sample bottles distributed as follows:
Julian - keeps 1 at home for his Vau DM
Alex - gets 1 for the Martinez
Ian - gets 3 for the Dow, Ferreira and Ramos Pinto
Tom - gets 2 for CrR and Vesuvio
Julian - leaves a further 14 at TBH. MPM will collect 7. The remaining 7 will be used on the night of the 16th.

All clear?

No it's posted to the correct event - sample bottles are being handed out at this event (3 June), to allow samples for the 97 Maturity bottles to be taken at time of decant on the 15 June (day before that event). Hence posting here, mainly to remind Julian how many sample bottles to give everyone! :D

The simple solution would be for Oscar to adopt the bottle of FG58 that is coming from Dries, which I swapped for a bottle of port that I need to send over to the Netherlands in the near future.

Oscar, I will PM you.

Thanks for the clarification, my mistake; I hadn't realised from your post that you were talking about distribution of *empty* sample bottles, hence my confusion.

All is sorted. Oscar is adopting the FG58 from Dries.

Accepted and done. Tom will join us on the 3rd of June; so we will be 8 people. Have also raided a bit his cellar for interesting 58s. Will bring 4bts (Constantino, Martinez, Delaforce and Burmester) over the course of next week to the Bunghole so they can rest (standing up). Can please bring AHB and IDJ their ports in advance to the Bunghole for resting as well? Please let me know if this is feasible.

Plan is to open them in the morning of the day of the tasting and double decant them ~ late lunch time into identical bts in order to make the blind theme. I am planning to take the afternoon off if I can and do the honors with uncle tom and you if you have time.

The organisation of this tasting is not entirely on target.

Reading the thread, I think that we have the following. Please could gaps and errors be fixed.
  • FG58 from Dries for Oscar
    D58 from AHB
    N58 from AHB
    W58 from AHB
    Bm58 from THRA for BMHR
    Cn58 from THRA
    Df58 from THRA for PhilW
    Mz58 from THRA
    D58 from IDJ for IDJ
    N58 from IDJ for JDAW

I agree there is some misunderstanding. Also the posts in this thread with regards to the 97 tasting did not help. Sent you a PM and hope it is now clear. Also left 4 bts of 58 vintage port in the Bungholes cellars. So only the 58 FG is not there yet based on my understanding.

regards

So we have currently 7bts of the 8bts of 58s sitting in the Bunghole's cellar. Hope this is now clear.

I am not certain whether the Df58 is in fact from Wolfgang or Tom's stash; I paid Tom for it on Wolfgang's instruction, but it may have come from either of them, and either could have transported it to TBH - I know nothing! Wolfgang should be able to clarify bottle-source for us.
