• Duck paté.
• Gammon and everything, perhaps including Ian’s egg.

as well as the missing 1966 and 1983, 1985..
These I have - the list was of the missing ones..
Sorry Tom, I don’t understand. Your posted a list of vintages you have — a list not including 1966. and you now have 1966? Fine: I’ll assume a recent purchase. Please confirm my interpretation.

Re: Tue 15th May 2018, Port Fit for a (New) Duchess, at The B&F

The glass on the right-ish far-bottom, not quite on the placemats , was a Sandeman 1968 left over from The BFT . The S68 had been double-decanted in Portugal about nine days before. http://www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180515_glasses_01.png http://www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180515_glasses_02.png http://w...

Re: Tue 15th May 2018, Port Fit for a (New) Duchess, at The B&F

Some bottles were off, but the magnums and the Fonseca 1970 showed wonderfully. As did, amongst others, O60, Cr60, and F60. As did the 1982 tawny bottled for the occasion.

The evening was splendid, the four toasts being made by our newest citizen.

May I ask that a treasure trove of pre-poured (or at least decanted) Port not long be left unguarded?

Some of my Monday will be taken by a small operation (it’s OK, unlikely to kill me). So Tuesday will be a crush. Please could I leave AHB and DRT in charge of set-up?

My Fonseca 1970 is already at the B&F. I plan to be there at some point in the afternoon to decant it. Are there other bottles at the B&F that I should also decant?
That being so, I accept your kind offer and will deliver my magnum to the B&F for you to decant.

Thank you.
