Places to drink post lockdown

I thought I'd start a thread with recommendations for drinking/eating venues that are opening post lockdown.

I'll start the bidding with Noble Rot, Lamb Conduit Street.

Re: 2015 Berry Brothers LBV

Alex, when scoring LBVs do you score relative to other LBVs, or do you score all ports together?

Re: Virtual Tasting #8 - Tuesday 30th June?

I’m leaning towards something from the ’80s. Maybe a GC or a T.

Re: Virtual Tasting #7, Tuesday 16 June 2020

Warre ’70 duly double decanted at 0700, many thanks for the guidance! Colour as expected for a ’70, nose of fruit - all seems well.

Just noticed that Tuesday 16th was meant to be the date of the Warre 350 tasting. As such, will open something starting with a W.

Theme?
The theme is therefore something beginning with "W"

Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

I’m afraid I have a last minute podcast recording commitment that may mean I cannot make this start time (and I haven’t been able to get my hands on the Sandeman yet, so if I can’t get it today then I’ll be drinking something else anyway). If there are no objections I’d still like to join, even if ...

Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

It seems like a Warre or Sandeman LBV are the most available options. Thoughts?

Re: Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

Could folks make suggestions for the drinking theme? Needs to preferably be something people can get their hands on between now and Weds 20th. This might be tricky for the likes of Will who is in a different country!

What about SW70, which can be purchased from Davy's Online?

Virtual Tasting #5, Weds 20 May

Our next virtual tasting is on Wednesday 20 May. Some changes for this session: - attendee numbers won't be capped. We can split people into virtual breakout rooms which allows us to have a couple of rooms with fewer people if required - a suggestion has been floated that we set a drinking theme e.g...

Re: Sunday May 3rd - my 60th birthday..

My father is deep quarantining, so the selection available to me falls short of that required for the occasion. Nonetheless, the occasional will be marked. Zoom? We can arrange (unless the wife’s account is being used for another thing at the same time). Happy to set up a Zoom if required. Happy bi...
