Well, that was pretty clear, wasn't it?

Yup. Warres were very good. Everything else, not so much.

Tasting was quite good fun though.

Very interesting, and a stunning result for Warre.

I thought the W81 LBV was the clear winner (could have been blind-guessed to be a D70 full Vintage), but others supported the ’79, and a score-draw felt like a fair reflection of the discussion.

Indeed. The closest of which I know was 18 Feb 2014 (ghastly placemats—what was I thinking).

Ben: thank you for making this review thread, and with Neil making the TN threads. Good work — I have been shamed into posting my TNs.

This thread along with the tasting notes so far are fascinating and very enlightening! I wonder if the more modern LBVs from the likes of Sandeman and Quevedo might stand the test of time in a similar way...
