Thu 19 Oct 2017; Mature V.P. or L.B.V.; Boot & Flogger

Post by jdaw1 » 13:11 Sat 21 Oct 2017

On Thursday 19th October 2017 a small emergency was held at the Boot & Flogger, with five attendees. The theme was ‘Mature V.P. or L.B.V.’, blind, and both types showed beautifully.

Alex M, Wolfgang, Mike, Jacques Cailloux (one of my bosses) and I met for some mature Port. It was all excellent. Maybe we were a bottle light.

I did send JDAW an email of a photo of the monkey's guess as to what people were bringing. The monkey guessed Quinta do Noval 1950.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

I think Alex needs a new Monkey.

I failed to understand that the photo represented the monkey’s guess.

Monkey guesses have to be a plausible effort at garnering points. Insisting on 1881 Van Zeller just isn’t monkeytastic.

A fine evening with great company - good to meet Jacques and Alex M. The theme delivered five excellent ports, and a great advertisement for storing away some LBV for the long run.
