    Re: Empty Bottle Support Winter '08/'09

    Just finished off my bottle of Knob Creek in a couple of very nice Manhattans for me and the missus.

    So much for that xmas present.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Winter '08/'09

    Night before last at the Ranch we finished off '06 Handy, a Black Maple Hill 14 year, and a WT101. It was a struggle and I am very sad to see the Handy and BMH go.

    Finished a bottle of KC and a bottle of WR. Slowly but surely making some room in the bunker. Joe

    Finished off an '08 Saz18 last night. It was a good bottle but I think I prefer the few earlier releases of it to this one. This is just one of several bottles that only have a pour or two left in them that will be finished soon, gotta clean up for the new year!

    Tonight the 4R1B bites the dust. I won't really miss this one too much and hope my next bottle is more like the first one I had as the nose in this one was a bit green and, ironically, stale at the same time; the taste in this one often has a hint of what I think bourbon would taste like if you dissolved a multi-vitamin in it, there are some other more pleasing flavors as well but this is the dominant taste all the way through the finish. This bottle was filled from barrel 9-4F from warehouse KE.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Winter '08/'09

    Emptied a bottle of Baker's tonight...I really enjoyed this, but it started to be a little funky on the last couple of pours -- I got a really strong peanut flavor. Anyway, making room for more open bottles on the bar from the bunker...plus this is an easy one to come by.

    Anyhow, sadly came to the end of Rowan's Creek yesterday (but with a paddle this time). What a surprisingly good whiskey. Never thought I'd like one that sweet. Bought one for a friend a couple weeks ago and her family drank the whole thing between them on New Year's Eve!

    Knocked two off today so far. KC and Weller SR. Who knows how many I'll get by the end of the day. I'm on a mission. Joe

    That would be me. Sadly, my dear sons cleaned me out of house and home while on break from college. Grrrr!! Time to restock.
