As it's hard to herd cats, it's only slightly better herding Northeastern Americans to port offlines.
Sushinorth and I visited differentdave out at his house with the theme of share a bottle that is ready to drink.
Differentdave spotted a 1970 Croft and a 1970 Dows. Both of which were drinking well but I'd give the edge to the Croft which had a fantastic lingering finish and a lusher mouthfeel.
Sushinorth brought over a 1963 Taylors, a Taylors OBV, 1985 Churchills. The two taylors tasted over the hill showing heavy notes of madeirization with the Churchills getting better with some airtime to blow off some of the grassy greenness.
Non ports where the 78' Quady's - an interesting austrailian fortified wine that fooled neither me nor sushi when asked where this wine was from. I thought ukraine, Sushi went another portion of the world.
