Re: RE: Re: W & J Grahams Malvedos 1979 and Dow's 1977 Vintage Port

What is value? When you want to buy them today in the uk you have to pay: https://imageshack.com/i/pn6gKLwIj and https://imageshack.com/i/plArG387j So, maybe someone want to buy from you for a very low price? Thank you for posting examples of the highly inflated anniversary market. These do not rep...

I'm still waiting for the day that Julian's Welsh Rarebit arrives at the table as a bowl of molten cheese (plus worcestershire sauce and possibly a touch of mustard, of course) with a piece of toast at the bottom!
This would be perfect for me too, but minus the toast. :)

Re: Which VPs will last 100 years?

An interesting thread to bump. I enjoyed reading it, thanks. Of those not mentioned so far, I wonder if Taylor 1992 might be a contender.

Re: Warre's unfiltered lbv

They are lovely. I like this idea. I don't have any older ones though, can only replicate the 2000, 01, 02, 03 and 04 already offered.

Re: Tue 11 Jun 2019 — 1994 Mini Horizontal

I have found (of those which I think are here) Warre, Offley, Vesuvio, Tesco and Taylor. I thought I had some Graham's here too, but the little minxes are hiding.

Good idea. I enjoyed the 2016. Most of those dates are OK for me.

Should we have a Meaningful Vote on whether or not to use placemats on 12th March? :P
We could plan for a Meaningful Vote on the 5th March, but expect to delay the vote until the 12th.

Re: Graham's Blend No. 5 White Port

Very good graphics. I like it. Modern, with the instructions on the bottle. Treat like Sipsmith Summer Cup or Pim's. Chuck in some fruit, mixers and maybe mint for an alternative Summer drink.

Re: Wed 13 Feb 2019 - The 10th Anniverary Vesuvio Case tasting

An excellent evening, great company and great Ports. Thank you very much CMAG for organising and donating. After a somewhat "drier" January than I would have liked, most welcome indeed. Thanks all, and thanks B+F for looking after us.

Perhaps 3 bottles of FG 1996, since they will be 69 years old between them. Although technically the brief is "a" bottle of port, so perhaps not.

Re: Are Vintage Port prices increasing

I wonder how much prices (and indeed supply) are influenced by currency fluctuations.
