Possible hacking of site

I got one of those extortion emails yesterday and normally they are generic but this one addressed to me by my christian name and quoted a "hacked" password which was my password for this site and two others. However on checking the other sites this is the only one that uses my christian name in the...

Re: Pointless Statistics

Julian never ask a lady her age, a farmer his/her acreage and a port nerd his/her bottle total! Having said that I salute you, 418 is dead on, I reckon the Magnum total gives it away.

Re: Empty box for a Graham's SH61

I think you might be on the right site because we are all drinkers here not collectors so i’m sure one of us will be able to help you out.

Re: Pointless Statistics

Thanks Alex for the template; I have never had the time to analyse my stocks but this is the year. The big change for me over last year is that most of my claret and some of my older ports have gone to new homes where I hope they will be very happy! At the end of 2020, I had a cellar which was compo...

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, slán, au revoir etc.

Perhaps, unusually, for an Irishman it may seem surprising but I’m going to miss you guys😂 but I think Portugal has the best reason to miss you (634 years of alliance). Good luck and I’m not being sarcastic as I know politics aren’t allowed on this site. So happy new year to you all and one way or a...

Re: Pre-Christmas Virtual Get Together - 15 Dec

Just a thought. Would it be a good idea for us all to have a meal; say a lump of steak (horns off, arse wiped). It would make it seem more like a normal get together.

Re: TFP 1994 VP special release for US market

Tom,

Do you think that TPF might have a lot more half bottles of different vintages (SQVP's etc.) still hanging around. I'm sure there would be enough interest here to do a deal for a pallet or two?

Re: Tue 24 November 2020 - A Tasting with Sophia Bergqvist

Struggled to find as I very seldom come across this brand. Found out the agent is JN Wines and managed to get Quinta De La Rosa 2018 and LBV 2015. Have never tasted anything from this company.

Re: Ideas for tastings

Just thought that as I have a couple of leakers in my cellar that that would make for a good online tasting because if it(they) are not drinkable only one person suffers! I’m assuming most of us have a couple.

Re: BBR VP Tasting-Tuesday 22 September 2020

Because of travel restrictions I wouldn’t be able to attend this even if I was on the list. I do have the 83 if it is needed and can send it to Alex. Whoever needs to adopt can provide one for me at a future tasting.
