Perfect evening with perfect Port and an even better company. Not to forget the amazing steaks (not US-english!).

Thank you again, Tom, for having us there. I enjoyed every minute

It was a wonderful evening with a proper fire in the fireplace making it very easy to use port tongs to open pretty much all of the bottles - much to the entertainment of the regulars.

Thanks to everyone for the great company and the luxury of a very fine array of ports, especially Phil for his wonderful bottle of Cockburn 1912. Which reminds me, Cockburn 1912 was one of the bottles on Phil's Port Bucket List. We should have a Port Bucket list thread. We did start one back in 2012, but I suggest we use a new one.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
