    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group Spring '09

    I ran out of room and something had to go. It took me three days but the half bottle of rebel yell is gone. I was really making room for the rebel reserve when I find some. Heard its good.

    My drinking habits are reversed. I'll slowly work my way through the first half of a bottle. Once it gets close to 40% left, that's the only drink I focus on until it's gone.

    I really get to enjoy a visit the same bourbon over a few nights and I also make room for something new.

    I am with you Chuck... I exhibit the same behavior,
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Last night I had to put an old friend down. He'd seen me through the past few months, and I had grown to love his soft bite and fluffy tail. R.I.P. The Fox.

    Just finished the last of my 2007 William Larue Weller. I swear that last pour was the best of them all.

    Now to get working on the 2006 Thomas Handy.

    Does this have anything to do with having whiskrexia nervosa? If so, I'm in the same boat. Joe

    Sirs, I have less than a 1/3 bottle of VWFRR left.

    Do I qualify for pre-nervosa support counseling?

    Or if there is something left in the bottle and your still nervous what kind of nervosa is that?

    Just polished off my bottle of Weller SR. I thought it was excellent. It had the best QPR of the bourbons I've tried, by far.

    Didn't your last pour have a ton of sediment in it? Now I shake the bottle before each pour to distribute the sediment evenly throughout the bottle's consumption.
