Re: Wed 26th Feb

I'm the 8 x '64 Taylors guy. So do I take it that I can show up at this event with a sample bottle and see what the story is? Any day after the 24th is likely to be tricky but I'll try and make it.

Re: Taylors 1964. What to do with 8 bottles?

Hi there all who are interested in this port. I'm still keen to sell this port and open a bottle if it helps to do so. I've checked the levels and I'd say six of the eight would seem to be completely safe. But I'm no expert of course. I've had a bit of outside interest but a gathering at the Bung Ho...

Taylors 1964. What to do with 8 bottles?

I've got eight bottles of what I believe to be Taylors 1964 Quinta de Vargallas. These are what remain of a case I was given at christening. I'm not not so crazy about drinking port that I want to get through all remaining eight so I wonder if anybody fancies buying it in its 50th year? Issues. All ...
