Re: 1977's - June 11th 2024

I am pretty sure I have one bottle left of the Ferreira (dumpy bottle), otherwise I think everything else would be matching things already out there. I’ll check and confirm.

Oops. Now sent you costs too. No new bottles though. Seems only 75 missing in the 55-03 range?

Re: 1994s, B&F, Tue 26 Mar 2024

Wouldn’t hurt to do a 2003 horizontal now that it has reached 21 years of age. Indeed, though I've only just taken my first 94 case from storage, so if others are in a similar position I suspect we might not have convenient access to many yet. Good point! Maybe we pencil something in for 2025 and g...

This is the highest resolution I can post here.

But whatever the bottle is — you have a bargain!

Re: 1957 Graham

Interestingly, the typeface is different on the labels in each of Alex’s, Glenn’s and Phil’s GM68 and G48. Best seen by looking at the serif on the bottom of the H of Graham’s. On Alex’s pic, the serif is fat. On Glenn’s it is thin. On Phil’s G48 and GM68 it is thin with a curvature on the bottom o...

Thanks to Anthony Symington for a fabulous magnum of the stuff. Overall, I was really quite disappoint...

Food order looks good for me, thx Julian. Something a little strange with Charles' - seems to be getting skinny fries...
