Re:The ultimate in Chowder!
In the UK, it is customary when one turns 40 to bring a bottle of 40 year old port. I happened to be lucky enough to turn 40 when we were living there and my best friend brought one over.......whether his claim that it was also necessary to finish it all that night between the 2 of us is true, I don't know...and remembered less after the first few glasses. But it was GREAT!
A few years later, when my younger brother in the US turned, 40, I decided to start the trend here. I had to special order it...so to be on the safe side, I also bought 2 20-year olds.
