Re: Emergency (@ 67 Pall Mall) - Tues 25 Feb 2020

Permission granted. And I understand that, since it isn't my husband asking, it isn't my husband's fault.

Re: Weds 5th Feb 2020 - Bring a bottle to share

I have so much sympathy for you guys. Definintely you should have this random evening of port-tasting. Definitely. And Julian should definitely go. You poor lads. Don't continue to feel unsettled. That's not a pleasant thing. So, go taste, take notes, and be more settled. Easy-peasy, lemon squeezy!

Permission granted for either date. Not sure whether I can fairly interpret the permission as being for both.

Re: The Book, ‘Port Vintages’, is for sale

I've just listened to the esteemed author on The UK Wine Show ThirtyFifty podcast where he talks about vintage port. Very entertaining and well worth a listen. There's also a follow up podcast which I haven't listened to yet, where he talks about The Book. Both very good, very well worth a listen. ...

Just to clarify, is this a different wife's brother to the one we shared eight bottles with in Paris? {He drinking one glass and us drinking eight bottles minus one glass} That was a boyfriend of a friend of the wife.

Re: Thursday 17th December - The Christmas Offline

Since Julian usually spills his plans to me to attend a port tasting only a couple days prior to an event, I'm being proactive and doing some organisation. Can I confirm that Julian is attending? Or not?

Thank you,

This is some serious sport. Very nice, guys. Last night when I heard Julian come home I assumed that he'd be totally sloshed. I heard him go up to his office, then a big bang on the floor. If that big noise was his big body collapsing, something made me think that he was just fine and that if he pas...

Ok, I just wanna know what the emergency is, and who declared it? It's interesting how sudden this 'emergency' came on. Something doesn't smell fresh in these Wiseman woods. Oh, and just because it's a small bunch of you, doesn't mean that you can pretend that more will attend to justify 'extra' bot...

Re: Monday 27 July, 2015 - Bring a bottle to share

Most of you, if not all, will be very thrilled to hear that Julian is able to attend Monday's port tastings. (We weren't able to remember why his 'permission' was about to be rescinded.)

Have fun!

Cotton candy nose. Caramel taste, with a hint of cherry. Very pleasing. My husband is a tease because my glass is suddenly empty and there's no more. Please sir, may I have some more?

No! Julian said he's only having a little taste!

Thank you for stepping up, Derek! In all honestly though, I have to admit that I was calling JDAW's bluff. I just don't believe he'll stay for a short while. He loves you guys too much!

I have a request. A certain someone has decided to show up tonight for a 'taste', and then he says he's leaving after 20 minutes. He just wants a taste. :roll: My request is, could you all set a timer for 20 minutes the moment he steps foot in the door please? I don't believe he's only staying for 2...

I'd go. Really? When Julian proposed this, I was shocked. I mean, "Fat Middle-Aged Men"? To me, that's offensive and a bit repulsive. Julian says no. Julian says it's a tractor beam pulling in FMAM. So I need reassurance that he's right. Is this Julian being Julian? Or is this Julian just being mal...
