    Empty Bottle Support Group Spring '09

    Finished off two yesterday. Both only had very small pours left. A FRSB and Everett's BT bottling bit the dust. Joe

    RRRye new style bottle. I think I would be very smitten if this stuff was a few bucks cheaper.

    With about 40% left, I finished off an ETL last night. No worries though, because I've got backup!

    Finally killed my Eagle Rare 10/90 last night -- I go back and forth with this, but don't think I'll buy any more for a long while.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group Spring '09

    Had been sipping the last remnants of a baby Sazerac for a couple weeks - drank the final few drops last night.

    Like many whiskeys, it seemed to improve after sitting open for several days; is this simply the mutability of perception or a measurable change in the chemical/physical composition of the liquid?

    With only a single bottle in reserve, I need to stock up, as thus far this is my favorite "everyday" dram.

    Another BT bites it.

    Seriously considering buying a case of this. BT and ER 10/90 don't last long over here.

    Just killed the last dregs of my EW black label. Dumped the last in my glass of diet A&W...not bad, but needs something...few drops of Angostura bitters...hmm, not too shabby! Not a bad bottle for as little as it costs ($12.99 for a liter bottle at Woodman's in WI)

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group Spring '09

    I started the original version of this thread because I had observed, in myself and others, the practice of keeping a bottle with one drink left in it for a very long time, because we didn't want to say goodbye to a particularly beloved bottle. I seem, through the help of everyone here, to have broken myself of that habit.

    Now I open something, drink it enthusiastically until it is about half empty, and stop there instead.

    If I understand the pathology correctly, that's not an improvement.
