Tue 08 Oct 2013, The Bung Hole, with Andy Velebil

With Andy Velebil visiting from California, it would have been rude not to. So we did, in The Bung Hole, on Tuesday 8th October 2013.

A splendid evening, with lots of good port.

And it will be remarked, so I should post first:

Next, bed.

A wonderful evening of fun and laughs. And some serious port tasting as well. When I'm on a proper computer I'll get my tns up.

A very enjoyable evening, and an excellent way to start the tasting season for me after a personal tasting drought over the summer! Good to see ADV again and to meet a couple of new faces; a fine array of ports, with the Fonseca 77 achieving a landslide victory for WOTN. Thanks to all for organisation and their contributions, including the two very old generously shared bottles which were interesting though unfortunately did not show well, and to RAYC for the additional young bottle of Quinta das Lamelas 2007 enjoyed with the steak (and which should be added to the bottles listed for this evening).

This was done, for obvious reasons, before AHB voted. He voted much later, but his votes seem to have gone missing though I do remember than they didn’t change the medal table. Perhaps he could remind us.

I'm a little busy at the moment, but will remind you of my votes when I can get to my tasting notes. I do remember giving F77 3 points.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

On the evening I didn’t photograph the post-AHB votes, but have since found the paper. So:
