Mon 15th Feb 2016 - A second emergency in a week!

Post by AHB » 19:09 Sat 27 Feb 2016

At short notice, a second emergency was declared in February and a valiant group of us gathered together at the Boot & Flogger to enjoy a tried and tested theme of "Bring a Blinded Bottle to Share".

The Ports which appeared on the 15th were:
1982 Morgan Brothers
1970 Offley Boa Vista
1977 Smith Woodhouse
1985 Taylor
1994 Quinta do Vesuvio
1974 Warre LBV

Very decent drinking was had, and a very relaxed Monday evening with good port and good company.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Two emergency's in a week and with the Vesuvio vertical to follow....what a fine month for port February 2016 has turned out to be! Thanks to Alex for arranging this short notice gathering. It was a great evening on many levels. Firstly, the company as always, for whom I want to add a special thanks for their generosity of warmth on the night. Secondly for the enjoyment at discovering the joys of the mature LBV with the Warre's 1974 unfiltered I was able to bring along, and also to be able to share (albeit not an amazing port) a Morgan 1982 that has not previously had a tasting note on :tpf: or :ftlop2014: And finally for getting 2 points on the blind guessing which is my best performance so far.

All in all a great night and I am already looking forward to the next calling of an emergency!

Whence came the Mg82? Both in the sense of who brought it, and where did that person acquire it?
