This was a very enjoyable tasting - the Delaforce was a very distinguished port, and think i enjoyed the Croft '66 more than the Wolfgang/Chris (and, characteristic of the few '66s i have tried, it seems to be a bit brawnier than average '63 or '70 and not unpleasant for that in my opinion).

In addition, the advantage of these smaller tastings is that you do get several glasses of the ports you particularly like!

Wolfgang had lofty ambitions of a 7.00a.m. gym session on the Monday morning. I must say that i was in no such state after 4bts between 3!

Hmmm. That would have required around 4 litres of water to accompany the port to ensure no hangover the next day. That would also generate enough exercise just heading to the toilet and back to make the gym unnecessary!
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994

Hi Alex,

lucky for you if it would. Think about the possibilties - more sport - drink more port! :wink: :lol:

No I went to the personal training session. It was hard and gruelling as expected! :evil: :?

But this is still better than having back problems! :D
