On this, the longest night of the year, I offer once again the theme of this long running thread. It's hard to finish off that last drink, especially if it's a special bottle. We've all been there, we feel your pain, and we're here to help.

Emptied an Old Forester and a Weller 12, but only to fill flasks. Those will be dry soon enough.

Last night I took that last of a WLW 2008 over cracked ice, tonight I took the last from a 2005 WLW also over cracked ice. Tomorrow I might go for a trifecta, and have a 2006 WLW hit the dust.

Finished the WR that really got me started on tasting bourbon, rather than just drinking it. Currently the bottle is a flower vase, and its place in the cabinet has been replaced by a much larger collection.

Well fellers, it's about to happen. My first 'real' bottle of bourbon is about to be emptied. It's 'good-bye and so long' to my Basil Hayden's Bourbon bottle. (Actually, I'm going to keep it) It was a fantastic experience. I cannot believe I waited this long to try premium bourbon. At least, now I know.

Second, I'm so glad I came here. You guys are more than helpful. I appreciate your experience, knowledge and support. Cheers to you guys! :toast:

I can honestly say, I don't think I'll buy another premium bottle of scotch anymore. At least not for a while. Again, I'm not much of a drinker. I call myself a 'sipper.' That's all I do now; sip bourbon, scotch whiskey or rum. I don't even drink beer, much at all anymore.

So, with that, here's to the next bottle of bourbon; whatever it's going to be (though I've been trying to purchase a bottle of Maker's Mark for the past two weeks).

Killed off a 2008 Julio's RHF Series II last night -- I went back and forth on this bottle, but in the end decided I really liked it -- just in time for it to be long gone. :cry:

I'm going to save the awesome bottle, though and put something else in it (probably Julio's BT as I bought a 1.75) -- I like having it out on the counter or kitchen table -- it's kinda elegant.

Killed off an RHF myself. Funny how we both had the same reaction (going back and forth on it). In the end, I too really like it. It has a lot going for it in proof & flavor. Put a 1/4 pour of WRMCSO to give it some age (or season for that matter) and it really hits the spot. Its mildly overpriced though.

Also killed off a WT101. One of the best values on the market.

Good to hear Andy...during our nights in chat I was really questioning if I was missing something on that pour because I have always felt that it has good proof and is a complex bourbon once it is allowed to breathe in the glass for a bit! You're close enough to Julio's that you could maybe score another bottle! :D

Just poured the last of a Binny's Weller 12. Sure is great juice, especially for the price, and I'm glad I have a couple more bottles stashed away. If I only had one bourbon to drink, this would be one of the top contenders.

01-11-2010, 20:29
Lot B went down with a double pour. Funny how the last pour sometimes changes your mind about the bottle. While I've always enjoyed the lot B, I was thinking that the proof was just not where I wanted and I've been underwhelmed of late by it. This last pour (perhaps because it was the first of the night and didn't follow another, more flavorful bourbon) was really smooth and exceptional and makes me once again a fan. I have 2 bunkered, guess I'll open one again.

Yeah, James, I am squirreling that stuff away . . . I bought a case in OCT but haven't opened any yet and have been nursing a 100ml sample that a friend gave me -- I know if I open one it'll just disappear into the ether.

I killed off a Dickel #8 earlier this week, but that was more like a mercy mission. I liked that bottle when I first opened it, but outgrew it quickly. I hope I still like the #12 -- I bunkered 5 when they were still $13.

Thinned the herd last night quite a bit. 2 1990 Owensboro favorite dusties Ezra Brooks and Private Cellar. These were outstanding. They have all the flavors of the early 80's Yellowstone. Both were different, but todays iterations of each belong on a different shelf below these Owensboro jewels. Find'em if you can. I have 1 more of each bunkered.

Also finished off another diamond in the rough, Benchmark Single Barrel 94 proof greatness. This won awards before it was nixed and for good reason. Spicy cinnamon and sweet corn. That was my last bottle but I know where to get more.:grin:

Now what to open in their place this weekend.:skep:

Just eliminated a Liquor Barn SB Hancock's Presidential Reserve. I'm still puzzled by this whiskey. Both from a cost standpoint, and a market position standpoint. Oh well, it was OK whiskey at the Hi$20something I paid for it. At the normal Mid-High $40 range I usually see it...it's not worth it.

As I was getting ready to drop it in the trash, I noticed the special sticker for Liquor Barn, that gave me a smile: "Liquor Barn...The Ultimate Party Source." :D LB talkin' a little smack.

Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 1994.

I've had perhaps ten of these. I love that edition. I'm not sure if that was my last one or not. I can't quite bear to look.

But the beautiful thing about the chest whose contents I don't check very often, there's probably also something wonderful in there that I forgot I have.

Johnny Drum Private Stock, at the price a good candidate to be replaced.

The last pour from a Pappy 15 hit the glass this evening while in chat.

I'm scared that I only have one in the bunker. I need to remedy that.

Finished a bottle of KC Monday, and poured the last of a 07 WLW tonight. I'm taking the WLW with me tonight to bowling. Only enough for a 50 mil sampling. Joe

Finished my second bottle of WR. To me the 2nd or 3rd pour seems different from the first. The more I drink, the more wood I notice. Woodford's 2nd/3rd pour seems similar in taste to my first pour of WLW SR.

I don't know... still sort of new to this.

With my limited experience I think WR is a decent pour, but not sure I would bunker it. Probably something I would pick up every once in a while to shake things up, but not something I would keep in the rotation.

Went to work early, hence I got home early. Had a pour when I got home, and that pour finished off a bottle of RY that I've had open for quite a while. Truth be known, the last few pours from this bottle weren't too bad. :skep: Joe

A buddy of mine had his 50th birthday party here last weekend. I'm not sure what we emptied, but the cabinet looks a little thin. We definately killed half a bottle of GTS.

For sure, every drop of tequila and beer in the house is gone. The only food is some leftover Papa Murphy's that was cleverly disguised in aluminum foil.

Those animals were partying at 9:30 AM Sunday when I got up! Party was supposed to run from 4-8PM, but it ran 14 hours past schedule.

John, Oscar, Thanks for the welcome back. I have popped in now and then over the winter, mostly to read the off topic and politics threads. Has anyone started the Baseball thread? I think I will go look.

Finished off a bottle of EC12 and a bottle of ER10 over the weekend. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/icons/icon9.gif

On the plus side, that frees up room to move a couple bottles out of the bunker...ORVW10/107 and ETL will take their places on my bar. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/icons/icon7.gif

With a sad heart, I just put down a 2005 Saz 18. This was a terrific bottle.

It almost makes me ache that it possibly will be ground up, re-melted, and re-formed into a Bourbon Supreme bottle.

I feel your pain. The 2005 Saz was my favorite, and I only got about a quarter of a bottle that a friend of mine gave me. He was quite generous to give me the last quarter of a bottle, but I sure wish I could find one in the store somewhere.

It's been a hard week. It's taken me a long time to get to the point where I can admit this, but I finished off my only bottle of 4R SBBS 2009. I...I don't know how I'll go on. Luckily I do still have my Binny's bottle and the 40th anniversary bottle and two full bottles of 2009 Mariage. I think I'll make it.

I also finished off bottles of EWSB 1997 and current WTRB. Now, I'll have to slum it with EWSB 1994 and a 99 WTRB.

What a world.

Let me put your mind at ease. Most glass that is recycled winds up as insulation. It's cheaper to make new glass than to recycle glass. :cool:
