I don't have any plans to be in London next week - but that means Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday would work for me...
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.

Sadly I am away next week. There has been a marked lack of tastings over the Summer
And I feel the need for some serious port!

Tom and I will be having a mini-offline on Thursday in Newport, in addition to whatever Tom is doing with others at TBH earlier in the week; just mentioning in case anyone fancies joining us.

I have found some bottles at home, so will bring one for me and one for DRT.

DRT knows what they are, but not which way round. I will know more than he. Is it still worth maintaining blindness?

Just called TBH to book and was told: 'Julian's already called'

- Now there's efficiency!

Indeed, I have booked The Bung Hole (57 High Holborn, London WC1V 6DT, tel +44 20 7831 8365, streetmap.co.uk, maps.google.co.uk, bing.com).

Two dozen glasses, and the Office or table 6, though if the Function Room is still available, we might invade that.

Who is to print?

Bottles ‘DRT’ and ‘JDAW’ decanted. Both corks legible and being brought laziness keeping the bottles at home. Both seem to be good juice.

All set.

I am at THB and disappointed to find that the Port I was promised is not here.

Not to worry, the medium-rare steak burger is winking at me so at least I have something to do to pass the time.
