At the Coronation tasting we discussed the absence of forthcoming tastings, and suggestions were made, including a 1994 horizontal (and ’66, G|GM). You know what to do.

Previous 1994 horizontals: 11 Dec 2007 at Bistro Citron in New York (Columbus and 83rd); 08 Sep 2009 at the New Cavendish Club; 11 June 2019 at the B&F; 16 Nov 2021 at the B&F.

With adequate notice since most is in off-site storage, I could get my hands on Berry Brothers, Churchill (but only in halves,), la Rosa, Dow, Eira Velha (Martinez), Fonseca, Gould Campbell, Graham, Graham Single Harvest Tawny, Martinez, Niepoort, Noval, Paxton & Whitfield, Quarles Harris, Ramos Pinto, Smith Woodhouse (but only in halves), Taylor, Tesco, Vesuvio, Warre and Warre Traditional LBV. I have some 1994 non-Port too, if that is of any relevance.

On the extreme off-chance that I can fly to London for this (I'm probably going to be in London around June 8-9 of 2024, so twice in one year might be pushing it), please put me on the reserve list. I have many of the '94's already listed but I also have a Burmester and a Quinta Do Crasto, which aren't on the list yet.

Julian, we should revive the thread organising this tasting. If you want me to step in and take over, I'm happy to do so - just let me know.
