So a few (THRA JDAW CPR IDJ) gathered, and were joined by more (DRT MPM), to test the mystery 1922 bottled by Robinson & Payne.uncle tom wrote: ↑11:45 Thu 29 Mar 2018I'm not under stocked on either '22 or '24 and the strangely low estimate rang alarm bells.
..but I wasn't going to let eleven bottles of near century old port go for just £850 hammer.
So I bid £900 - and won the lot..
Have looked at the bottles for the first time today, and the lot description didn't do them justice. All the bottles have perfectly intact wax capsules, and the colour looks promising. The worst level is on one of the '22s at low shoulder - not below low shoulder as billed. Only one of the '24s shows seepage (not two) and that's very minor.
- But who's the shipper?
