Port advice please?
I've just been given a magnum of Taylor's Late Bottled Vintage Port - 1984.
Can't find much on the internet so:
a) Should I clean my disk rotors with it
b)Should I drink it in an unsubtle way over the next few weekend with a to supermarket cheese selection
c) Should I leave it for a special occasion, decant it, and savor it slowly with the finest cheese available?
vis a vis - is it any good? What its value just out of interest?aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....

Leave it until you've already had 2 bottles of red wine then drink as much as you can and still be able to speak.Pootleist

I'm "twatted" :-)
(edit)...and struggling trying to make a bike from any of my four workable bikes because I'm quite lax with my maintenance and all of them are in someway broken.
Naught of which is helped by drinking white wine, whilst trying to watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer back to back :-)

White wine with Buffy? How uncouth.Pootleist

Late bottled port is normally ready to drink and not meant for keeping. It wouldn't have improved much, if at all, so hopefully it's been kept in decent conditions and you can drink it with your cheese and biscuits...a perfect combo

I do like a nice port.The thing with vintage port, is you cant really open it, have some and then put it back in the cupboard with the cap on (as you can with sherry, or normal port). You need to drink it all in the same way you would wine after its opened.
As sniper says, drink it with Cheese.
Nice introduction, to those not sure about port, is a nice Otima tawny, served Chilled (thats right chilled!). crisp clean and refreshing.

Needs to be be opened on a dark, wintery night, with the rain lashing and the wind howling.
Then when asked why you are partaking, reply 'y'know ... any port ...
My coat ? Yes I'll get it..Rage rage, against the dying of the light

Hull is a good port for getting to and from mainland Europe for people who live in the North.Logical

One of the best bottles of Port I ever drank was a simple non-vintage bottle my dad brought back from Portugal.....probably didn't cost much knowing him!

I am pleased to have such a positive impact on Hull, and even more pleased that Karlos is paying some of my wages via his council tax.aka Sean / Sandeep / Sylvian / Seamus....
