Stop it! I’m tying not to buy more Port!!
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

Some bargains in the Hedonism sale - Vesuvio Capela 2016 at £75 and Graham Stone Terraces 2015 at £100. Couldn’t resist one of each of those. Plus a whole bunch of young Tappit Hens which are not compatible with my other obligations at the moment.

Assuming you also resisted the temptation of the Dow/Warre/Vesuvio 600cl bottles? Well done. Over to Harry…

Nacional 1996 for £465, and 1999 for £495 also feel like bargains (especially given Hedonism’s usual pricing) - but also not tempted.

How do you deal with shipment here ? Do they just ship it and you hope with regard to customs ??

@ mcoulson - Suspect you are confusing them with Garrafeira Nacional in Lisbon. Gosh I did love buying from them pre-brexit.

I thought the tappit hens were good value at the discounted price as the premium over bottle release price had vanished.

Aldi currently listing Fletcher's 2017 LBV for £8.99 a bottle. If they actually have any to sell, this might be a bargain.

Nickolls & Perks is having a sale on some items. Fonseca 2000/2003/2011/2017 for £54, for example. Worth a check, in my opinion.

Waitrose is having their “buy 6 bottles and get 25% off” sale.

So I’ve just bought my summer supply of Kopke 10YO White and Kopke 2010 White Colheita.

I got Pocas 2016 for less than £25 a bottle and Niepoort 2019 LBV for £15 (also an Amex offer with waitrose which can be combined)
