Not me. Confusion caused by arranging this tasting in another thread.

Any plans to reinvigorate this? +1 if so! Have a few in storage and could draw down given notice.

We don't seem to have many tastings in the calendar for early 2017, so I thought I'd test the appetite for getting the '80s Majors Matrix in the diary.

Anyone up for this on Thursday 9 March, at the Boot & Flogger? If you like the idea but not the date then please mention this.

Good work Mike. Would love to come, so please count me in. I have a Taylor's 83 or Warre's 83 I can bring.

And I should have said that (amongst others) I have T80 and F83. So it looks as though we've pretty much got all covered :D

Ian, Simon, Simon, Charles, Dave - many thanks for confirming. The planned 15 ports currently split between 7 of us assuming Julian confirms. Ideally we should get to 10 attendees as a minimum to avoid a challenging port per person ratio. Let's see who else is interested in the next couple of weeks.

Charles - could you flag which ports you have available.

I have F85, T85, G85, W80 and D80 - I've been put down as having W85 and D85 which I haven't (well, I have the D85 but it is rubbish and wouldn't dream of bringing it) instead of G85 and T85. :?

Am I needed? Duty calls? I obey.

All my 1980s majors are at my father’s, which I am unlikely to visit before this event.
