Tue 13 Nov 2018 — an emergency.

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

A few people gathered together at short notice and enjoyed some port. What that Port was, who is to know.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

By all that’s magic I am summoned again! Born of an egg on a mountain top and all I am brought to Earth to do is this!

Brbrbrbrbrbrbr (shakes head rapidly)

You mortals are useless at this. Let me taste...

The first port you call DRL. What is this? This is not Port? Port should be brown and smell of Monkey poo, not this dark red stuff that smells of coffee beans before they pass through my digestive tract and are roasted for the pleasure of mankind. Sometimes they are even washed before roasting. But not always.

This, you creatures of fleeting lives, you know as Fonseca 1985. The only port that will last as long as I do - for all of eternity.

You puny creatures. With my mystical powers I have been able to fool you all. You think these are different Ports — they are not. They are the same Port but from different times. Fonseca 1985 that is 20 years old, 33 years old, 40 years old and beyond. Truly, this is Monkey Magic.

Now leave me be. I have chaos to tame.

Well done!

Monkey won with 5 points!

DRT second with a shameful 4.5 points 🙈

That is Monkey Magic. What can I say. Once more the Monkey defeats the forces of evil.

Does anyone remember what we tasted? I have my notes, but not the details of the wines after they were revealed.
