Or a mini-theme. If we could stay non-completist, we could for instance put some bottles together for a little Offley or Croft/Roeda line-up? Or a mini 85 horizontal?
For Croft, I have 63 (£55) and 66 (£40 i think) and 82 (£35) Croft available. Axel speaks great things of the 75 Croft, which i have not tried. That and both the 70 and 77 could be relatively easily acquired if no one has stocks, making a good 6 bottle line-up if there's just a few of us.
Depending on numbers interested, we would perhaps avoid the 85, but i do have have a 67 Roeda (£65) and i'm sure i've heard either Ben or DRT say at a tasting that they have a small stock of the 80 and 83 Roeda. The 87 Roeda would make a nice addition too if anyone has that, and even the 60 Croft is not too expensive.
Plus if we still look like we might be light on port, would be nice to add in something like the 03 which gets rather good ratings.
For 85 i could supply Fonseca, Gould, Churchill, Dow
