A night at CMAG's - 22 Dec 2014

This was the perfect way to end my 2014 Port-drinking season - great company, fabulous Ports, a BBQ, a late night fire with cigars and a fine Malt Whisky. In hindsight, the last of those might have been a mistake.

The Graham 1970 was the WOTN by quite a stretch. Thank you to Christopher for his generous contribution of a Croft 1945 and some fabulous steaks.

I will leave it to someone more diligent to post the relevant links and TNs.

Indeed an excellent evening — thank you all, especially Christopher (Cr45 and the steaks) and Derek (2×1970 including WOTN).

...and thank you to JDAW for the very fine cigars.

And this was the evening when I learnt that corks expand as they burn.

What? No port over Christmas? No port on New Year's Eve?

I heard a rumour that there was also a bottle of Quinta de Corte 1991 opened. Did anyone taste it?


And my thanks also to CMAG for his generosity in hosting us, including top quality heritage potatoes (and I'm serious - they were delicious) and wonderful creamy butter to go with the Croft 1945, steaks and shrimps.

Oops: I forgot about that. Oops. It was had with the smokes, so “taste it” — hmm, not so much.

Won’t make a TN thread, as none of us will contribute to it.

I forgot about the DC91, and the potatoes, and the shrimps. I think my earlier words were accurate...
