Re: I'm going to be having a bad week...

Sorry to hear it going to be a tough week George. I would go with one of the 1985s personally. Obviously an older port is out because they may not last for the 3 days, but I think an ‘85 gives that balance of maturity and robustness to see you through the period. My favourite of the 3 would be the G...

I have decided that my godfather is not up to scratch and that I want Harry to adopt me as a godchild regardless of the oddities of the age si...

Re: Latest buy

Finally after over 30 years of attending auctions a 1961 bottle came up and I got it!!!!

The cask was successfully tapped this afternoon. And likewise, there is no chance I will drink the c. 60 pints before it goes off. So I then spent an hour or so filling 4pt plastic milk cartons and delivering them to neighbours!
What a wonderful neighbour!
