Wow! If that is really what happened, I must have had a splendid weekend.

Please sir, may I do it again?

It is not for me to permit or deny your request, I only report what you recount to me.

Permission is to be sought from your appropriate higher authorities.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

This appears to be an infinitely repeatable method of gaining permission...

The scribe wasn’t present for the permission-gaining efforts. Not quite as easy as this mis-summary makes it seem. Hey ho.

I think I speak for all when I say we don't need to know more details.

There may have been a certain element of artistic interpretation used when documenting JDAW's most recent trip - perhaps in part to spare the blushes of our dear reader.
