Re: 1970 Horizontal - Tier 3 ports

I voted on the morning option but forgot to post. Would be dependant on the date.

Re: Warre's Sesquarcentennial Tasting - Tuesday 16th June 2020

Yes please, I think I could make this one. I have a 1970 VP or a wildcard of a 1974 LBV (a previous bottle from the same source was delicious).

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

As much as I would love to be able to do a tasting at the Factory House [at anytime],... mid summer is unlikely to work for me, but I hope that others get the opportunity to make the chance happen. It seems that this tasting of possibly of possibly the best vintage of our lifetimes (I am expecting i...

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

I can confirm I would still be interested in this depending on the date. I would like to offer a Warre 70 for my contribution if possible.

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.

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...
