The initial title of this thread is “Mon 22nd or Tue 23rd or Wed 24th Dec, lunch or evening?”, which summaries the question at hand. Will anybody be available, and thirsty? I could travel.

Alas no. Unless by 'travel' you mean 'go to Belfast'.

I'm in for evening of Monday 22nd. G70 is my weapon of choice.

Boot & Flogger seems to be the obvious venue.

I might be available on Monday. Not sure for now as I will need to request a pass.

JDAW - please cope.

Making placemats.

Blind or sighted?

Due to a failure of counting, I’ll bring a pair. One younger, one older.

I have already declared so mine will be sighted. I have no preference what others do.

Will the Fr07 be wasted in the company of at least 2 x 1970?

Given that I am due to pay a fine, would JDAW be too upset if I replaced the Fr07 with a W70?

Over my medium-length and mediumly-ill-spent life many rubbish suggestions have been made, none of which looked like that. Placemats updated.

I'm not 100% certain, but I think it would be either a 1970 or a magnum of Graham 1897.

The latter would be very decent of him.

Due to a very kind offer to hold this tasting at a more intimate venue the guest list must now be closed as there are no more seats at the table.

Sorry.
