Re: 1980 Horizontal, DATE TBC, B&F

I wonder if it was Julian’s food order that sent shockwaves through the B&F team.

Regret B&F, at short notice, now not going to be open on 23 June. I apologise for the need to rearrange yet again.
No apology required from you George. Great work on staying on the case and it will be all the better when it finally happens!

Mockery was expected.

It is an experiment. I hope it is really good. But it might not be.
Not mocking… just very much surprised 🐷

Re: On the hunt for a 93!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Aussie or SA Port on offer. Good. :evil: Quite often available through Laithwaites is the basic 10YO Penfolds Tawny wine. And through other merchants the Grandfather Tawny and Great grandfather editions which are quite pricey. There are plenty of other examples if yo...

Re: 1908 v. 1912

Count me in please… it is highly likely I will need to adopt… But even better is the idea of DOTY cup 5 and I would be happy to host at www.theheritagebandb.com if we can get the dates right. I believe other rounds/libations will be required along with sour dough bread and lots of cheese! Let’s make...

Re: 1908 v. 1912

In a thread appropriately named Pleasures of a bygone civilisation , there has been dispute as to the better of 1908 and 1912. You know where this is going. At least two lists of possible attendees will be maintained. First, those able to bring appropriate bottles, or have them brought on their beha...

Re: Quevedo, Blend Your Own 20-Year Old Tawny, Thu 13 May 2021

What a great tasting! Spoilers if you intend on catching up on YouTube and haven’t yet. Really interesting to do something slightly unusual and a lot was learnt along the way. The four components were all lovely wines, albeit quite different. Component 1 was a 1997 Colheita, quite Ruby like as it wa...

Reconfirming too in case it is required, but I am not sure we completed confirmations from the last round yet. Anyway, in more ways than one I would be thrilled to attend. Can I also add my son Zac (ZCD) to the reserve list please. Hopefully he will be wheeling me there and back so it would be nice ...

Re: Learn to blend your own Tawny - with Oscar Quevedo

Incidentally, the comment from Oscar that his sister likes to take tawny Ports in-and-out of wood as they are really made me wonder: why aren’t Quevedo making any garrafeira? It seems that they do indeed make some Garrafeiras, but not commercially as yet… but keep an eye out for some Christmas spec...

Re: Latest buy

Isn’t the bottle under discussion sealed with an appropriately sized T-stopper rather than a driven cork?
