It was nice to catch up with people last night, despite the rain and the dreadful train journey home. Thanks to Mike for arranging everything, impeccably done as usual. Thanks also to everyone for bringing such a great selection of ports.

I managed 1 point in the blind bottle guessing point - which is 3 less than "the monkey" who guessed Dow 1970 for everything.

My wine of the night was a tie between the Taylor 1970 (bottled by Christopher & Co) and the Krohn 1961, with the Berry's Own Selection (Quarles Harris) 1977 being my third place wine.

Great to catch up with everyone, and to welcome Tom to his first tasting. The T70 from Alex was my WOTN.

On the evening we developed an interesting twist to guessing the port. As Alex alludes to above, we invented "the monkey", who happens to guess Dow 1970 for every port tasted blind. On this evening, the monkey scored 4. We were only able to match this, not beat it :-)

Also worth noting, for a tasting with more than ten persons, this may well be the first time everyone got at least one point!
