June Offline 21th June- Crusting pipe- 1982 horicontal

Post by WS1 » 06:30 Tue 11 May 2010

Hi there,

when meeting Tom on Saturday we also discussed the possibilty of a 1982 horicontal to find out if there are any good. Hence this thread to find out if there is any interest. :)

The ports from 1982 i have are Ferreira, Delaforce, Croft and Noval. Please let us now which ports from 1982 you have and if you are interested. As an initial date suggestion the 14th or 15th of June came to my mind.

regards

WS1

Game.

Would like to adopt, as I have no 82s.

Thanks for the idea Wolfgang, should make for a rather curious evening.

The N82 I have tasted once, and it was terrible. Not even a bad bottle: just thin. So an ’82 horizontal? Only if I’m in London anyway.

Willing to make placemats for the team though. When things are known, instruct in this thread.

Hmm, I disagree the N82 is terrible, indeed it is not a very strong, meaty port, but still very good indeed. A bit lighter than the 1985 but fairly comparable in my eyes. Croft 82 is also lighter, but has in my eyes a decent finsh. Sandemann 82 so far was the best in my eyes.

Understood, that this offline is not justifying a trip to London; hope by accident you still will be in London for the offline. Will instruct with placemats if offline is going ahead. Thank you in advance for your help.

I can make either date, but would prefer Monday 14th.

I would have to adopt, the only 1982 vintage port. Is anyone willing to offer something for adoption?

Wolfgang,

It is possible I may be able to make this if it is Monday 14th June. Let me know the consensus.

Likewise I have no 1982 so would need to acquire or adopt. I am in Porto in 2 weeks, so there may be a possibility there!

Assuming which, draft of the placemats. The typeface has been chosen for being thin and ugly I hope the choice proves unfounded.

I'd be keen for something on the 14th June, though also have no 1982. Do we have enough bottles for adoption? Or could we extend this to 1983?

To Wolfgang's list I can add Churchill, Eira Velha & Sandeman.

So far we have six/seven attendees and seven bottles - just about enough for an event..

I am a possible; though again I'd need to adopt, if anyone can oblige? I have '82 only in Colheita form (which presumably doesn't qualify!)

A thought has just occurred to me. The Crusting Pipe becomes very warm as a venue in the summer. Last year we found that the warmth of the location in the height of the summer affected some of the ports quite badly, with them becoming very alcoholic. We overcame this with some ice buckets to keep teh bottles in and cool them down a little.

It might be worth booking three ice buckets at the same time as booking the table in a tunnel.

Annoyingly, I was putting this date in the family diary and realised that it is the week that Elizabeth is away on the school residential trip. I am therefore the parent in charge for a week and can't be late back from London.

Sorry, I will have to bow out unless we can move the date back a week to 21 June.

Alternative plan: see how the Bowler performs next Wednesday, and then make a decision.

That week would work equally well for me.

The 21st should be fine for me too.

Could I be penciled in for a +1, too (assuming we can find enough bottles)?

Hi there,

updated as far as possible. If we finally choose to go to the Crusting pipe I think we need at least 3 ice buckets which i will preorder. Otherwise I am looking fwd to this since I quite like the 82s. Of course this is not a very strong year but drinking currently very nicely indeed.

regards

Regrettably, since posting this, Nuala has had it confirmed she will be working 4 days a week with Monday being the 4th day. I am unable to attend.

The only good news is that she will be working from home on Thursdays in the future, so I may have a little more flexibility to attend tastings - Tuesday or Thursday in the future! NOt this one though I am afraid.
