    Empty Bottle Support Group, 2010

    Here's where we can mourn the loss of a bottle, either a favorite or something that you were happy to get out of the way to make room for another.

    No matter what, we're here for you.





    I killed the rest of a Binny's Weller 12 this morning in order to give the last 200ml to a friend who loves the stuff.

    I finished a makers off last night over some ice, very refreshing.
    The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group - Summer 2010

    I've been on a rampage of sorts in an effort to make room for new bottles on the bar. In the last two weeks or so I've polished off bottles of Makers Mark, ETL, Lot B, Sazerac 18 and Fighting Cock, with AAA and an ER 10/101 facing extinction shortly. And yet, my wife complains that my bourbon collection looks as large as ever. That's actually good news, as it means she hasn't yet discovered my bunker!

    Two Van Winkles hit the bin this week. First was a bottle of PVW15, an excellent bottle enjoyed by all who tried it. Second was a bottle of ORVW10/90, I liked this one better when it was first opened. Thankfully I have replacements for both.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group - Summer 2010

    Well, I've finally broken down and am working on draining the last bits of bottles. These have bought the farm recently, but it was only tonight I worked up the nerve to let some of these bottles go:

    • Four Roses Yellow Label - recent bottling
    • WT Rare Breed WTRB-03 engraved cap - Very pleasing, as have been all the WTRB-03's I've had.
    • Vintage Bourbon 17yo - circa 2006. Really good, warm, sweet and lingering. Perhaps my favorite standard KBD bottling
    • Dickel No 8 circa 1965 1/2 pint - Remarkably consistent with recent bottlings.
    • Old Forester F71-S77 - This is the real thing. 414 Baby!

    Killed a Julio's Series II Barrel 34 RHF's...wish I had gotten a couple more of these. I have one in the bunker to tide me over.

    My handle of Knob Creek finally kicked it. Fairwell, my affordable daily drinker.
