Re: Tue 12 May 2020, Horizontal of 1992s, B&F

Yes please, I have a Yeatman labelled 1992 believed to be Osborne.

Re: Software that makes placemats

Quite liked the spirals, flowers and crosshatching. Not sold on the stars but the bold defining of the main elements is good to my taste a la Flowers.

Re: Software that makes placemats

Personally on the latest iteration for the Rebello Valente tasting, I think the droplets detract from the classic nature of the placemat and is like a very light version of Pollock’s number 14. I am all for pimping up the mats but this one is not for me... thoughts?

Re: 1991 Horizontal Tasting - Monday 9th December 2019 - B&F

I am afraid I will no longer be able to make this tasting. I hope Tom will be able to join you and have a bottle that will replace de mine.
I look forward to reading the notes on this interesting vintage comparison.

Re: Thu 19th December 2019 - the Port Forum Christmas Bash

I am afraid I will have to miss out in this tasting yet again. A combination of proposed SWR industrial action that would scupper my travel and unknown as yet timings of some renovation works at the B&B mean that I am unable to commit. Apologies, but I hope one of the reserve list will now have a wo...

Re: Tue 29th October 2019 - "69"

Can I please abstain from food on this tasting. Unfortunately to be able to make the tasting I need to catch the train up from Weymouth in the afternoon and then travel back the same evening as I have a lot of bookings for breakfast the next day. My last train is 9pm from Waterloo so I will be leavi...

I bought it along as well as the Warre’s 74 LBV. and it was acquired as part of a private sale listed on TPF shortly before.

Re: Decorations!

Welcome ECM... what a great introductory post. I am lucky enough to be facing the same challenge and have a room set aside for wine/port tasting, wine/port library and a general area to display bottles and other such items. I shall look forward to reading the replies. It would be good to hear about ...

Re: Tue 25 June 2019 - 2017 Vintage Ports

Thank you for your kind words... there will indeed be some celebrating but probably of the tawny variety due to transit and not a full celebration until I have worked out poached and scrambled eggs!

Re: Tue 25 June 2019 - 2017 Vintage Ports

I am both delighted and disappointed to have to withdraw from this one. The 2016 version of this was a wonderful tasting and I am gutted to no be able to compare with the 2017s, particularly with the back to back nature of the vintage declarations. But, I am delighted because we finally managed to e...

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Is it a bottle that went missing from the cellar years ago... I can’t remember what it was but I think a 55 of some sort? Or a NN63 Mr Davy wanted us to enjoy?
