I was given, some months ago, an unusual bottle. Unusual in the sense that I’ve never had anything from that shipper.

In my last week in Holborn, should it be brought to the Bung Hole? If yes, on which of Tuesday 10th or Wednesday 11th July 2012?

Location: The Bung Hole.
Theme: Blind Emergency (though sighted isn’t prohibited).
Date: TBD.
People: JDAW, DRT, perhaps others.

I'm afraid I'm on holiday, so will have to join virtually. Sorry!

You can’t be on holiday: I’ve almost fixed the swashing problem, and was planning to use FreebooterScript to demonstrate a job well done.

I stood a bottle last night, but won't make a call until tomorrow at noonish.

Please reserve me a guest spot.

I'm in..

- will bring a curiosity that we have only once had at a tasting before, when half of those present thought it rather nice, and the other half hated it..

..this bottle will be from a different stash, that I've owned for nearly five years, yet have never sampled.

Beyond that, the bottle will be blind!

Out of interest as there has been no review, can someone say what were the curiosities?

Hi Phil,

I was very happy with a 1940 House port bottled in 1990 from Dalva (my favourite), followed by a Dow LBV 1962 bottled in 1966 and thrid by my Warre 1960 (english botteling reimported from the US).
