Can we do better than "Small 1963"?!

How about "Birthday ports for AHB - 1963" or some variant?

Are these producers all mid-tier? Plus what if the unknown turns out to be Taylor?

Very unlikely. And even if I were, I have no ’63 within reach.

That is not an insurmountable problem with 2 hours notice...

Is The Bung Hole a confirmed venue or simply the default parameter now in the placemat software?!

The Bunghole is confirmed, although we are (probably) not in our usual room but on the table in the corner.

It is the default of the placemat software’s main user but not of the software itself.

Though it’s not a bad idea. Why not write ‟The Bung Hole” rather than ‟London”?

We are in the Office at the Bung Hole - that's the small room - tomorrow night. It's booked from 6pm.

Please update the Placemats to remove RAYC (work) and his Cockburn '63. Looks like it will be a small and intimate tasting.

There's a small chance i might be able to make it out for a couple of hours between 7.00 and 9.00 tomorrow - enough to leave the bottle standing tonight, not enough to make a firm commitment.

Take me off the placemats but i now have a sliver of hope that i'll join you with the Ck for a short while.

Cheers

Rob

In the absence of a response I have decanted. It smells like Port.

If your BI63 has a label, please photograph it.
