    Damn Man, besides another run I'd suggest a prayer ceremony!

    My first and only bottle of Jefferson's Presidential Select 17 year-Batch 1 was finally put down. It was very much enjoyed but is still at $90 around here so a pass for now.

    Which Willett was it? 5yr or 8yr?

    Just killed a bottle of Blantons.Its dump date was 6-2-10 Barrel 202 Rick N0 37.It was a good pour .It had ok weight and a great mid-palate that had a flavor of baking spices ,caramel ,burnt sugar.The finish was medium in length.Overall a very nice bottle.Some older bottles I have had seem to have a little more weight.But I still enjoyed it a lot.I was able to buy it on sale for $39.00.Now I will have to find an other bottle.

    If I could ever find it for that price it would be on my bought and killed list too.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group, 2010

    Well, I did a quick review of my liquor cabinet and there are about 30-35 open bottles, of which about 15 are filled or less. Time to start culling the herd. Tonight, got home from work a little early and enjoyed a final pour of ORVW 10/107. What a great bottle. Bottle A-6110. Deep, rich caramel, lots of "red hot" cinnamon flavor with hints of bitter sweet cocoa. Towards the end a distinct licorice flavor comes through. Medium finish. Luckily picked up two more bottles today, this stuff is getting harder to find in my neck of the woods.

    Poured the last of a bottle of OGD114 tonight. I thoroughly enjoy the current version of this bourbon (although in full disclosure, I have never had the ND version to compare it against). For my money, this is an excellent pour that will be soon replaced.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group, 2010

    The last few days have seen the demise of my first Makers 46, an 08 OWA and tonight an 01 Old Fitz BIB (one of the early Heaven Hill bottled and labelled as DSP 1/31 but, I'll presume, UDV distilled Bernheim juice). Must be the season of the wheat .
