There's a famous election slogan by former Chancellor Willy Brandt: "Let's dare more democracy!" When someone wants to criticise too much red tape in Germany, this is turned into "Let's dare more bureaucracy!". :)

And it's your taxes which pay for all the bureaucracy.

No probs. Just let me know when it's done and I'll take a look for things I've missed.

The index has been updated.

Twenty seven TNs were added since the last update.

There have been a large number of tasting notes added in the last quarter. Please could we have another TN update?

Did someone with the knowledge to be able to do so run an extract of the tasting notes so that I can perform my syntactical magic?

The index has been updated today. Four hundred and sixty two tasting notes have been added to the forum since 2nd Dec 2014.

Good work on the TNs; shoddy on the updates.

AHB - you have work to do on fixing thread titles. You might want to remind the culprits of this.

I've finished working my magic and noticed some interesting things when I was going through the index. I have a perception that we drink or taste some pretty old stuff. While it's true that we do, less than I had imagined. We have 5,295 tasting notes in our database but only 47 of those are of ports which were made in the 19th century. The oldest tasting notes are from June 2007. The most frequently tasted vintage is 1970 (380 notes), the oldest 1815 (2 notes) and an honourable mention to the 1863 vintage having 10 notes. We have 421 tasting notes on non-vintage ports.

Among the big shipper we have a real shortage of notes on older vintages. Ferreira is well represented and includes 1815, 1830, 1834, 1863 and then a jump to 1917. We have notes for Sandeman 1873 and 1884 and for Croft 1896 and 1904. There is an isolated tasting note for Dow 1896 but then the next oldest vintage of Dow we have tasted is the 1945. We have note tasted vintage wines from any of the other shippers which are from the 19th century.

We have 4,870 tasting notes of vintage dated ports. 82 (1.7%) of these are of ports which were 100 years old or more when we tasted them. 26 were in their 90s, 66 in their 80s, 96 in their 70s, 110 in their 60s, 370 in their 50s, 733 in their 40s, 804 in their 30s, 830 in their 20s, 858 in the age range 10-19 inclusive, 887 with ages 2-9 (which covers cask samples and new releases) and even 9 pre-release samples!

My stuff now finished. I have chastised myself for my many and egregious errors in naming convention.

Over to you DRT to do the refresh.

It's about 6 months since we last updated the TN database - could we run another update please?
