I finished off the last of a Pappy 15 tonight. It was a bottle I brought to the KBF this year and it came home with about 150ml left in it. I have a few more bottles in my stash but I'm already figuring I may need to look for more. Is it wrong to need more than 3 bottles? I don't think so.
4R Yellow label used for a very short Manhattan... always a great mixer!!
Recycling day today. Two empties hit the bin: ORVW10/90 and a bottle of Weller 12. Two of my favorite daily pours.
Another home Iowa game, a few more empty bottles at Kinnick Stadium - this time Weller 12 and Weller 107. I'm making bourbon fans out of a lot of people that are used to only drinking Jack, Crown or BV. Now if the state of Iowa would help me out and sell something besides the basics to I don't have to drive so far!
Emptied the last of a bottle of VWFRR ...good to the last drop
Tonight saw the final but predetermined complete disappearance of what once was three bottles of $10.99 Rittenhouse BIB's from the shuttered Sam's Wines and Spirits.
I did kill OGD 114 from 81 and WLW 2007 today. Both did grow on my over time and the Granddad was a real hit at the end. The WLW on the other hand struck me as very thin and alcohol hot from the beginning, but pleased me much more when I learned that it did need quit a bit of water despite the relatively low proof. Still I do count it in the WLW B-team together with the 2005.
Just finished the last of a RR 90. I initially wasn't all that thrilled with this one but by the end of the bottle it had become a favorite. Another one of the excellent $25-$30 bottles.
