Assorted capsules, mostly damaged. Unlabelled. Levels top-shoulder or better
AHB and JDAW agreed to split this lot, JDAW doing the bidding and it being delivered to Sussex. Subsequent inspection by JDAW resulted in a description:
JDAW, in a PM to AHB, wrote:To recap, in a form that we might choose to quote on :tpf:, AHB and JDAW have agreed to share a lot of twelve bottles of port, described as being unlabelled mixed shippers, believed 1955. I have sorted these bottles into fill order, and labelled them 1 to 12, best being 1 and worst being 12, are have notes as follows. (All level measurements were done by eye and guess, without a rule: imprecision is guaranteed.)


11. Green glass. BN-11mm. No visible brand. Capsule ‟!BRAEY AB!” who is probably a bottler.
One bottles donated to the 55th Annual Dinner of the Cambridge University Tiddlywinks Club, the twenty-five people present each getting a small sample. No placemats, only decanter labels.

The cork was clearly marked 1935, above which were visible the letters ‟OR”, positioned in a manner consistent with it being ‟TAYLOR”.

Alas, at decanting and four hours later, too old. Caramel. Acid in the early palate, and just tired throughout. Given the fill level, good for purpose.

At the same dinner were served Noval 1970 and Noval 1975.
