I was all excited about good news I received today. I said, "I'm gonna open a good fuckin' bottle of whiskey tonight" at my buddy's place, so I set the bottle by my front door. I went to the bathroom for a minute and heard a glass crash. I look at the front door, my dog is walking away and I see this

Consider it an offering to the patron saint of spilled whiskey....Saint Mungo the Intemperate

Seriously...I give you credit for being able to hold the camera steady....If it was me..the sobbing would produce a blurry picture.

That's a PVWFRR? !!

I hate to say this but if the floor is clean I am tempted to retrieve and filter it. Hahaha.

But with the dog and such, probably not.

Hope you have another one.

Cheers

Brutal.

It's like the Red Wedding all over again, only with rye.

That's really rough, but unfortunately not the first time I've seen that happen with the flimsy wine/cognac bottle style that PVW uses. My buddy dropped a PVW20 from height of three feet onto a stone floor and it was in a million pieces. Meanwhile on another occasion, I dropped three Saz18s and a PHC cognac down a FLIGHT of stone stairs and they all survived intact. Dumb luck, but BTAC bottles are sturdy, as are all PHC after the first edition. I've noticed that the base of the PHC 1st is a full quarter inch thinner and a bit more flared and broad than the other editions of PHC (note my first edition is the 2nd pour - don't know if this is true of the 3rd or 1st pours).

Maybe some of those guys from the bourbon exchange would come by and “Hoover” your floor clean.

DOH! I would say that I feel your pain, but I can only imagine the pain and agony of that sight in person. My deepest condolences :cry:

You can mark the outline of the dog and the bottle side by side on the floor at least!:lol:Damn shame my dogs usually only spill my beer,I feel your pain.

I would have a hard time not sticking the intact end of that bottle in an orifice that would make that dog very uncomfortable! ;)

So sad to see that pic. :bigeyes: I once dropped a brand-damned-new bottle of Elijah Craig 18 on my driveway and saw it break instantly into several dozen pieces. A very sorry, empty (in every sense of the word) feeling, indeed. My condolences. :rolleyes:

You have my sympathies. My question is what did you open to soothe your pain?

Thanks, but Winston is the one who scored. Per his twitter he "settled" for a 17 yr 4R OBSV. #straightbourbonproblems

Agreed, nice consolation prize.

Looks like covering the bottle in bacon drippings so the dog would tackle it worked!

Well, it sounds like you're suitably consoled!
My closest story is having some guy at Costco bump the store's last bottle of EC18 out of my arm and onto the floor on Xmas eve. I had to just walk away from the carnage or I would have added to it!

My great dane's tail has destroyed more than one irreplaceable, limited edition beer, but never anything as special as that.

Seriously though, tragic.....I'd officially be on suicide watch. :-/

Gotta give the dog a pass and put the onus on the owner of the dog (and bottle)! That baby should have never left your sight and most certainly not been put on the floor in an unsecured area! If you can't take a whiz with one hand whilst keeping a firm grasp on the bottle with the other then perhaps you should send the rest of your top bottles to me for safe keeping!

I don't charge more than an ounce or two. An hour...

:slappin:

Winston, I have two bottles of Barrel #18. Some of the finest whiskey I've ever had the pleasure.

Maybe peeing is a two handed procedure for Winston. Bigger in TX and all that.

If it's that big then rest the bottle on top!

That's what I do...

Damn, that is a bummer. I am curious if the dog tried a taste before heading down the hallway.

Best regards, Tony

Ouch, reminds me of an ad years ago for I think Cutty Sark or some blended scotch. Picture of a broken bottle and Scotch whisky wetness, caption of "You Ever See a Grown Man Cry?"

Tears are not enough....

Don't worry - Winston will be soothed with other liquid refreshments.

Perhaps a nice "Winston Sized" pour of V21 or the TPS Bowman Rye will soften the blow? I will let YOU pour* next time you are over...






*Fairly confident I've just made a bigger mistake than Winston did with his bottle by saying that.

Of course, you could have posted this in the Empty Bottle Support Group 2013 thread.

Just be certain, my friend, that we - your friends - cry along with you. :cry:

Of course, time and whiskey heals all wounds.

Damn you can say that again. Last week a work associate didn't feel well went to bed early to never wake up. He was 56. Your statement above makes me think. It's hard to accept when people you know that are younger than you pass away.

Maybe I am stating the obvious, I have always found that the PVWFRR is extremely hard to get, actually the hardest to find out of the whole line. So it's especially sad to see this and hard to replace. :(

This is why, when I am moving some of my bottles I have two hands on it. :) and super careful.

Seriously though, I feel for you man. I would be inconsolable if that happened to me. I wish I had a bottle of VWFRR because I would send you some from it.

rwbadley - I believe here's the ad you were referencing. I'm not sure I'd shed a tear for a bottle of crown royal but I'd be darn near inconsolable if something happened to my signed bottles of Pappy. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CROWN-ROYAL-ad-magazine-advertisement-Canadian-Whisky-grown-man-cry/200923348131?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%2 6asc%3D11%26meid%3D8151054595647460322%26pid%3D100 011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D380630514705%26

To better days! *toast*
