Re: Two Cases of Vintage Port For Sale

Crawley is within reach of my father’s house, so I pass near occasionally. If that would facilitate delivery to a purchaser, will to oblige.

Re: 5th November 2064 - a Quevedo Salmanazar..

perhaps if you store it with the neck tilted upward so some liquid stays in contact with the cork but doesn't put undue pressure on it? Hence, in the essay on Big Bottles of Port: Ending The Prohibition I wondered whether bottles could be stored at 45°, but Dominic observed that it might still be “...

Re: Vintage port

Also, to attract buyers here you might wish to mention where you are — or, more relevantly, where is the bottle. UK? USA? In either case, roughly where within?

Julian - one small amendment proposed if you have a moment to make changes to these placemats, could the D and T positions be swapped. This will leave TFP ports on page 1 and SFE ports across the other pages.
Done.

Then the placemats need to be altered. Charles?

Edit: no QH. Placemats updated. Which changes the amount of trimming of the glasses pages: now ≈47.0mm ≈1.85″.

I’ll remove the QH links after the tasting.
