What a fantastic evening! The opportunity to have tasted a Waterloo vintage port and England win on penalties... an evening to savour indeed. Thanks are due to Simon for arranging the tasting. Special thanks to Christopher for sharing his Ferreira 1815 vintage. It is not disrespectful to say that the port was past itโ€™s peak, but at 203 years old that can be forgiven. It was still drinkable and a huge privilege to taste a bottle of port history. Mocha on the nose with grapefruit dominating on the palate. It was an eclectic mix of bottles and all showed pretty well. The company, as always, was top notch and thanks to all for the fine and interesting bottles, four of which I had not had before. A very fine way to celebrate an English victory... Wellington would be proud.

Please post TNs. Especially of it, but of course of all.

Was the สผ15 fortified? Mid-fermentation?

Julian,

Arthur Colley was brought up a couple of km from me and last time I looked I lived in Ireland so as we were part of the British empire at the time itโ€™s fair to claim the victory as a joint effort๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

Sir, it is not Julian that controversially claimed Waterloo has an English rather than British victory, but I. It suited my narrative at the time. I am now worried about my next football/Waterloo post as โ€˜weโ€™ (all those that wish to claim an โ€˜Empireโ€™ victory) face Sweden and they are responsible for an even finer Waterloo...

Whilst it is clear in your mind, please do so.

25,000 UK out of UK led European coalition of 118,000 (when the 50,000 Prussians turned up) against 73,000 French. I've even read argued it was a German victory. :)

Wow. The chance to taste a Waterloo vintage port is a privilege, you guys present are very fortunate, and Christopher very generous.
Sounds like a very interesting evening of different ports (I'll be particularly interested to hear how the Adams '66 [RO] showed), and the old Dalva colheita (I very much enjoyed a 1934 which Wolfgang brought it along to a tasting a few years ago).
Of course, now what on earth are you doing to open if England win their next match?!

I have a G66 on hand for any necessary celebrations.
