A 1970 horizontal, Flight 5, Thurs 8 October 2020

Post by flash_uk » 12:07 Wed 29 Jan 2020

The 1970 vintage is 50 years old this year. Birthday celebrations are required.

What: 1970, Flight 5
When: Thurs 8 October 2020
Where: The Red Room, The Boot & Flogger (Google maps)
Timing: 18:00 for 18:30

Please note: preference for attendance will be given to people who are able to provide bottles from Tier 3. Which means some of those currently in places 1-14 might get bumped because someone in reserve has a bottle to offer.
Also, depending on our ability to collectively source the bottles across all tiers, it might happen that the Thursday is cancelled, because we don't collect enough bottles to make it worthwhile, in which case we'll squeeze what we have into Friday.

I confirm I should like to attend, subject to an inadequate number of those further up the primary list also wishing to attend.

Confirmed...but accept I will most likely be replaced as I am unlikely to have a bottle to offer for this part of the tasting.

This is going to be a challenge to put this together - the saving grace is that it will only need to be one bottle.

At the moment from Tier 3 - I have Royal Oporto, Dalva, Santos Junior and Borges. I'll put them aside as I suspect they will be adopted. I'll keep an eye out for any others.

I have Hutchison and Barros of the tier 3 Ports. Mike, would it be helpful to paste the list of the tier 3 Ports into the top of this thread so that we can more readily view?

Thanks Ian. Have added a link in the top post to get to the list of shippers in tiers.

Looking for something else on t'Internet and came across this...

https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auct ... 19010a65bd

Looks like another 1970 that it's unlikely we'll be able to find.

Was this missed from the original list or is it something else?

Interesting find! Indeed looks like another one for the list, but nobody has it. Also noticed that one was on offer at Cheffin's in December as well.

It might or might not be, you never know in Porto. It is the same company- but to know if it is the same juice inside the bottle you have to ask a port wine expert.
