There should be, on its 20th Anniversary, a reprise of the first tasting at which there were placemats made by the software, which was on 30th November 2002, at which were Warre 1970, Fonseca 1970, Croft 1970, Sandeman 1970 single and magnum, Sandeman 1960, and Sandeman 1977.

Compare placemats for the 30 Nov 2002 tasting: artisanal first draft with industrial version used.

Those with a long memory might recall my failure to book a room for the 15th Anniversary. And, yes, moments ago an email was sent to the B&F.

Who’s interested in a tasting to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of The Placemat Software?

Yes please.

I’m sure I have a Warre 1970, or perhaps it is a Fonseca 1970, I could contribute.
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.

Splendid. Thank you.

The 2002 tasting had six people, and seven different Ports. The 2022 tasting might have most of fourteen people, so will need more Ports. Hence bottles are not tightly restricted to those present at the earlier tasting.

I’m confident that we have enough bottles on the theme of ‘Sandemans, and 1970s’.

I'd love to join but can't provide any of those specific ports. I can certainly rustle up a bottle that would be befitting of its company though!

The W70 is the only one of those I have. But, as with others, I have other wines of appropriate stature.

It’s unlikely that there will be attendance by all of SCP-DFS, SRG, and HEG, but this won’t be known until September. So early names on the reserve list will have a fair chance of promotion.
