UN Declare Port Emergency in The Hague

Post by DRT » 22:01 Wed 23 Feb 2011

Parisian forces have been despatched to The Hague to research the Netherlands' Port-drinking habits.

A message from our undercover friend was intercepted by GCHQ this evening:
jdaw1 wrote:Drinking -- Lord have mercy on my soul -- Royal Oporto white. And the taste --- not so much the nose -- is OK. Medium sweet; mid-palate lemon acidity; ending light but long. Entirely pleasant
This is clearly a disastrous state of affairs and the UN have declared a state of emergency and are currently conducting a bar-to-bar search looking for our crazed, delirious friend.

What horrors must our brave soldier be witnessing as I sit here sipping my last sample of F77. The poor boy must be losing his mind.

Our thoughts, if not our F77, are with him.

I had Royal Oporto in my special 1975 category. But this is very drinkable.

It is rare enough to find the first or second in the same sentence as the third. But all three together? He is clearly hallucinating - get him some help quick!
