I've recently acquired a taste for Port. Having been for so long tea total, I somewhat surprised myself by a spur-of-the-moment purchase of a bottle some time in the latter half of last year and really enjoyed it as a late evening drink with a pipe alongside. I think it's an age thing with me. Almost sixty and I felt I wanted a bit of an indulgence, I think.
This one is Dow's Reserved Port. Very nice indeed and I feel this will be a regular tipple from now on.

If you enjoy port, then you might also consider some sherry and/or Madiera, all very similar. The main variation comes with the sherries, those can range from very dry and flinty to quite rich and sweet . In fact, that's a whole 'nother hobby world to explore which does not have to be staggeringly expensive unless you choose to go that way. ;)

Appreciated, Richard. I've recently tried sherry and like it as well. I just don't know enough, as yet, about the nuances, types and varieties on offer. Perhaps this could very well be that other 'hobby world' that you mention! I'll keep you posted how I get on...

My diabetes cause me to become thirsty far more than I ever was. So, it's just now been fresh orange juice diluted with water, plus another glass of water soon. I've never known a period when I've drunk so much water. Still, they say it's good for the body! I'll have some tea soon with my light evening meal.
