We all brought Cockburn 1955. It did make for a splendid dinner.
A very boring offline”, as reported.
I disagree! It was not a boring offline! Wine and port were nice! The accustomed reader of this forum may have expected more variety in different shippers however in the old days port bottled by different shippers tasted different. On top given ageing in different environments added to the differences. So still interesting!
Will check with Rob if he still has another bt of Ck55 from Newcastle breweries and Alex if he has another half bt Ck from the same stash left to redo this boring tasting.

I will unfortunately be late, as I need to time a Costco run to coincide with my wife's availability (she has to work this week) and that's now. We'll probably be done in an hour or so, so I'm hoping to be able to join everyone no more than 90 minutes late.

Anyway happy to be back in England for tonight's tasting as my German WLAN would have not been able to cope as still the old telephone line from ~80 years ago
but this is because your house is 80 years old and you have spent all your money on Port :-)

It was lovely to see everyone again. Roll on 2021 and the re-emergence of the concept of a tasting in meatspace.
