To mark the occasion of Mr Wolfgang Starz having become British, some of his new compatriots gathered at The Boot & Flogger to drink Port Fit for a New Subject of Her Majesty.

Many would have been worthy winners, but rightly the ’66s, wrongly led by Fonseca, had it. We did Mr Wolfgang Starz proud.

Thank you all for the great evening! Having now become a British citizen I am looking forward to many more tastings. Also our experiment with the extra ordering of the Steaks paid off. I think we should do this again. Despite the Steaks were always good at the B&F this was a step up worth paying for in my humble opinion.
To complement the view that we had only excellent ports that evening I feel the most of the 70s ports would have benefited from earlier opening and decanting. This would have helped them showing more "fragrance" and complexity. However I admit in such condition 63s and 66s are difficult to match in taste profile.

regards

Probably a stupid question, but being as I'm from this side of the pond and I don't know I'll ask. Who's in the picture above the fireplace?

A very good evening indeed. Thank you. Fine steaks and an excellent line up that lived up to its promise. I agree that the 70s could have been decanted earlier as they got better as the night wore on. F66 head and shoulders above the rest for me, fantastic bottle. I also liked the Warre 70 but nobody else wanted to mention it.

I have no idea. If no one else knows I guess we'll have to look now :)

That's Wolfgang wearing the outfit he had to put on for the final ceremony where he swore allegiance to the Queen, the whole Queen and nothing but the Queen.
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.
