How can anyone not drink a bottle of this in a week?

It makes me drool now to think about having three fingers of it.

This is my favorate regular pour now. For $28 a bottle, who could resist this smooth nector of the Gods! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif

The 10 is good but the 15 is my goto drink although I don't do a bottle a week. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif

I'd drink my bottle of 10yo in a week, but I can't easily replace it....so it's had to go on my 'once every few weeks' drinks list http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Until I fell in with the StraightBourbonians, I had never thought of how long it might take to finish a bottle. I suppose I thought a bottle might last a lifetime, especially if the owner is old to begin with and has many bottlings open. It came as a shock the first time I actually emptied a bottle. That prompted me to do the math.

One bottle is 750 ml. I figure one drink is 50 ml. (At least that's what the airlines seem to think. I don't know how that compares to a bar shot.) That means there are a paltry 25 drinks in one bottle. If I have two drinks a day from that bottle, it will be gone in less than two weeks.

Can I imagine consuming a bottle is as little as one week? Barely. That would mean almost four drinks a day, every day. That's almost too much of a good thing even when it's ORVW in the glass. Now and then I'll get carried away and have that many drinks, or even one or two more, in one day/evening, but I usually find it very easy, almost preferable, to skip the following day.

I am commenting on myself, no one else, when I say, drinking one bottle in a week on a regular basis would be a problem (in at least two senses of the word.)

Yours truly,
Dave Morefield

Dave, didn't you used to be an engineer? That is 15 drinks, not 25. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Tina's favorite for years - even better than the 15yo in her opinion (and, with the bottle of 15 yo we have now, I would agree).

. . . which is why I figure on something more like a bottle/week! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/drinking.gif

Tim,

Yeah, but obviously not a very good one. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Naturally, I switched to program planning & control and then to accounting. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/smilielol.gif

Believe it or not, I've had that erroneous factoid embedded in my mind so long that I haven't even questioned it. I suppose if I had ever drunk from only one bottle until it was empty, I might have discovered my error. (If I were a real engineer I would have done the lab work.)

Yours truly,
Dave "Bottle a Week" Morefield (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/drink.gif X 15)

According to Scottish legend, there are 18 shots in a bottle, hence 18 holes on a golf course! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Good stuff. I have three bottles, now two and a half, that I got the other day. Don't know when or if I will see more on the shelves. I like it a lot. It really changed the way I feel about wheaties. I would really like to see what more time in the barrel would do for this whiskey.

Love the 10yo, but the 15yo has much more to offer......
I keep 3 to 5 of each..... http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif The only other
bourbon I keep a few on hand would be EC 18yo....
