I have created the TN threads for this tasting and incorporated the appropriate links:
*Please note that the 2008 Cask Sample was donated to this tasting by the Symington family before the final blend was complete so this may not accurately represent what the Vesuvio 2008 will be, should it be approved and declared later in 2010.

It's always a good idea to have a contingency in place :wink:

I don't. Do we need one? If so, do we need a Mag of each of the others in the line-up?

Of course we do. Haven’t you learnt anything?

I’m willing to accept that this is a lower-priority ‘need’ though still a ‘need’.

Thanks

My hotel is 100 yards from NCC. JDAW and I can improvise in my room for a couple of hours if necessary, though not in the Biblical sense :wink:

Sounds like fun. How did the 2006 Magnum show? I hope it was worthy of the wait. :wink:

I thought it was very good, others thought it tasted of dodgy unwashed feet :lol: = do you think it perhaps needs more time? :roll:

As usual on these occasions my notes are sparse and somewhat useless so I am waiting on AHB and others posting theirs before adding my few words :wink:
