Furthermore has JDAW informed me that he will take over of this tasting on tasting day. I am sure he also is delighted to take up the food orders out of this thread and comunicate to the B&F. As soon as we have all food orders we pm each attendee with about total cost implications.

Can please add all attendees add their food orders in the thread so JDAW can record them.

looking fwd to the tasting

There is a menu item that seems to have disappeared that I think would bring great comfort to the collective if re-instated.

"Big bowl of sausages on cocktail sticks with sesame seeds and a sticky and very tasty coating".

Please, Sir, can we ask for this to be available as an apertiser/starter/main/savory/desert?

Placemats updated for 23 glasses on trimmed A2.
• Simon: please confirm that you can cope with printing the first 15 pages onto A2, and the remainder onto A4.
• Circles would be tight but doable for Davy’s white-wine glasses, but should be good for a Riedel Port glass.
• Wolfgang: who is bringing (or has already delivered) which bottles?
• Is the V06 a magnum?

Indeed, let the record show that last night Derek and Julian were arguing for fewer bottles, claiming that 23 is too many for one session, whilst Alex was being completeist and insisting on the full twenty-three. Upside-down world in which we live.

send you an e-mail indicating we should use the ISO glasses from sensible wines. Please comment.

Ports per attendee below:
DrDirk: 89, 90, 92
WS1: 99, 00, 09, 10
MPM: no port contribution
JWEW: 94, 98
CPR: 95, 05
DRT: 97, 06
JDAW: no port contribution
AHB: 07, 11
SCD: no port contribution
PW: 96 (from AHB)
IDJ: 91
BMHR: no port contribution

we have a problem with 01, 03, 04, 12, 13 still being on its way to Blighty; 09 will come from Seckfords on Thursday after somehow initially missed out. :? :twisted:

89, 90, 91, 92, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 00 being in my posession and the remaining ones except listed above being in the Main cellar at the B&F. And V06 is not a Magnum!

I've only just clocked that this is 23 ports. What is the plan on the day - is there potential to start early, perhaps around 4pm for those able to do so?

Sorry chaps, I now have to be elsewhere on the evening of 24th February :cry:

My adopted bottles will be there but I will not be able to join you to enjoy them or their siblings.

Have fun.

This is very sad; any chance the short notice commitment going away as it came?

It is very unlikely, Wolfgang. I need to go to a client meeting in Liverpool on Wednesday and Thursday and they are highly unlikely to cancel.
