I think 1970 is too obvious. I'm going with 2000 Ramos Pinto.

You’re all wrong, especially Derek and Glenn.

Extra clue: I’ll be drinking most of the decanter tomorrow.

No. You appear to be ignoring the most recent clue.

Not really - my connection lost all pertinent information and it was the last thing I had.

The most recent clue led me to a guess that has already been used - 1985 Dow.

I'm afraid that I am stumped. It appears that the answer is either a 1970 or a bottle for which JDAW did not author a TN thread.

But I will flail blindly nevertheless and guess 1970 Gould Campbell.

No and no.

Symington.
Big year.
Had one this year though I did not author the TN thread.

Extra clue:
Drinking the following day must have a long recommended decant time! What does that suggest about the age?

Extra extra clue:
Not 1970.

I got all those clues... except that since you originally said it was one that you opened this year I read that to mean your bottle, and therefore likely a thread you authored.

I'll have another guess in the morning. :)

So what might have caused somebody else to author a thread about a bottle I opened?

Well I was going to say a themed tasting, but KillerB already guessed it. :wink:

The guess I'd worked up overnight was going to be a G85, but I needed to check it before posting. Too late, and wrong anyway.

C'mon KillerB, next quiz is yours!

Haddock.

Could we get a hint or a clue, so that we can do more than wild guessing? (E.g., my first question said ‟Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer”, and by saying ‟at least the dozenth time” suggested child compatibility.)
