heroin laced port

Does anyone know of a bad batch of port circulating around. I opened a bottle last week and am now hopelessly addicted. Nearly every waking hour is consumed by thinking about when to have my next fix. My lips are black and I have a Bastard of a headache most mornings but I cannot stop.

Anyone else suffering the same problem ?

I have a nice collection of ports, from 1985 to 2006 vintages.

A good vintage, for me, goes down as fast as lemonade, and the pain that follows is just part of the experience.

If you're about to buy some, go for 'vintage' rather than 'late bottled vintage'. It'll cost more, but you'll get a much bigger headache for your money!

I love port - especially at this time of year. However, whilst I am pretty good with most drinks, port sends me into overdrive ...

Aldi port is very nice, for the money.

I have some 1985 but also some 1977 plus some in the nineties, also some 20 & 10 year old Tawny's which are very quaffable! Happy Christmas me!

Don't make the mistake I made last Christmas.

I opened a bottle of '97 vintage, and it virtually evaporated! I was so impressed that I went on-line to see what they had to say.

What they said was that it was one of the best vintages of the decade, but will be best after another 15 years.

Doh!!!

I have a bottle of Prager Royal Escort Port 1990, and a bottle of Gustave Niebaum Commemorative Claret 1993 which I know nothing about other than we have had them for about 10 years.

Do they go off? Should you decanter them?

Been saving them for a special occasion, but when you do that they never get drank. Bastards will probably drink them at my funeral!

When you open a great bottle of wine or port, that IS the special occasion.

For the student drinker I would recommend a cheeky vimto, a third of a pint of port topped up with a bottle of
