    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?

    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.

    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 :-)

    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..

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

    Its such a great drink Port, but very dangerous too. Too many nights to remember have ended badly by topping beer and red wine up, with half a bottle of port. A few years back on a Boxing Day, my Father in-law, Brother in-law and myself went out to the in-laws barn, sat round a calor gas heater and drank 4 bottles of various vintages.....we still don't quite know how, to this day. Bearing in mind we had been drinking since lunchtime too!

    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!

    My limited experience of Hull is that its full of nutters. However, the place itself will shortly improve as our software is now managing all of it.

    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.
