I am an unlikely, but possible. I will seek permission. It is the one day next week that I might possibly perhaps be able to make.

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.

Drat and double drat! I hadn't undertaken the necessary checks and balances (schoolboy error) and as am on child duty that night, regrettably I will have to confirm that I'm now out :(

Blind or sighted? I lightly prefer sighted, but will go with the consensus.

Bonus request. I’ll bring mine in decanters. If it isn’t too inconvenient to do likewise, please do likewise.

AHB: some time late on Thursday afternoon, when it is too late for people to change what they are bringing, please would you post here what is to be the monkey’s guess. Thank you.
