Plenty of adoption options, and good to have two offers of '94 already, as I don't have that one.

Vintages: we are looking for 1830, ’34, ’37, ’40, ’42, ’44, ’47, ’51, ’53, ’58, ’61, ’63, ’66, ’68, ’70, ’72, ’73, ’74, ’75, ’78, ’81, ’84, ’85, ’87, ’88, ’90, ’92, ’94, ’96, ’97, 1900, ’02, ’04, ’08, ’10, ’12, ’19, ’20, ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25, ’27, ’29, ’31, ’33, ’35, ’42, ’50, ’54, ’55, ’60, ’62, ’63, ’66, ’67, ’70, ’72, ’75, ’77, ’80, ’82, ’83, ’85, ’87, ’89, ’94, ’95, ’97, ’99, 2000, ’03, ’07, and ’11.

If seventy-four would be too many magnums, maybe we could omit a few of the youngsters? Or, for a few, have measly-portion single bottles?

Yes please.

I would have brought the 1830 but I drank it last night whilst watching the Eurovision pre-event show. Instead I'll offer the 1963. Or (underlined for JDAW's attention) I could offer a 2000 if we want to go that young.
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.
