    Port

    I wish I could afford the port I would like to drink, like LBV, aged tawnys etc. Instead I drink alot of tawny ports and thought I would recommend a few.
    Ramos Pinto Tawny, Trevor Jones Jonesy, and Whisker Blake. All are very tasty. the last two are auzzie ports. Jonesy is a dark brown so don't let it put you off. Any recommends from you guys. Smitty

    Re: Port

    How do those compare to Galway Pipe or Optima...if you have had them?
    I have a Porto Morgado I have not opened yet.

    Of the Auzzies I prefer the Jonesy and whisker blake but Galway ain't bad. I love Optima but moving into the price range I can't afford for half bottle.Yalumba has a nice little aged tawny port for about 12 bucks that is very good, also. Smitty

    Re: Port

    Had some South-African ports and they were quite allright but i prefer the real stuff.Working in a specialized wine&liquorshop gives me a chance for trying out and buy the best stuff for a lot cheaper than the regular prices.My collection of port is growing by the day,from 1963 to 2001 i`ve got colheitas,vintages or lbv`s.My oldest bottle is a colheita from Kopke from 1931.But from all the houses i think the most and constant one for quality is the house of Pocas,anybody knows this house?

    I just picked up a Fonseca 2001 Late Bottle Vintage from our ABC for $24.50. I haven't opened it yet. The price was right and so far I've liked the Fonseca Bin 27.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    If you like the Bin 27 you should love the LBV!

    Re: Port

    Christmas night I opened two bottles of Vintage Port. One was a Croft 1963 and the other a Dow 1970. Both were excellent; however, I liked the Croft best. It was still in its prime with an incredibly long finish.
