Perfect evening with perfect Port and an even better company. Not to forget the amazing steaks (not US-english!).

Thank you again, Tom, for having us there. I enjoyed every minute

It was a wonderful evening with a proper fire in the fireplace making it very easy to use port tongs to open pretty much all of the bottles - much to the entertainment of the regulars.

Thanks to everyone for the great company and the luxury of a very fine array of ports, especially Phil for his wonderful bottle of Cockburn 1912. Which reminds me, Cockburn 1912 was one of the bottles on Phil's Port Bucket List. We should have a Port Bucket list thread. We did start one back in 2012, but I suggest we use a new one.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
