    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2011

    Finished off an EWSB '99 last night, and dug into an older Old Forester 100 proof. The OF was really sweet, which surprised me.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2011

    I'm finishing off a PVW20yo tonight. It's from this spring. It's always sad when emptying a Pappy. Luckily, I still have 3 of my favorite PVW15 from this spring too. Hopefully for a reasonable price, I'll stock up on ORVW10 107 when I visit TN this week. It's $50 a bottle here. I think a bottle for home and a bottle at work will get me through until the fall allocation. If not, I guess I'll have to take a 15yo from the vault, take it out of the crate, the foam, the plastic and nurse it back to life!

    Not bourbon, but I killed off a Talisker 10 and a Laphroaig 18 last night.

    Finally emptied the bottle of Pure Kentucky I received as a gift. Not great bourbon.

    Four Roses Yellow Label (whiskey smashes for my wife) and Woodford Reserve (Old-Fashioneds for me) bit the dust during Irene. The backup 4R is already open; the WR will not be replaced.

    WR and AAA 10yo made stellar Old Fashioneds; the ones made with EW 12/101 and Makers 46 were not as well-balanced (I had some time to experiment...)

    What's your Old Fashioned method/recipe?

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2011

    I finished a Willett 2 year rye this week. The bottle lasted longer than I thought it would. It was good, but like many of the other 95%-100% rye mashbills I've had, I ended up mixing most of it with ginger. I'll replace it with a 3 year version if I place an online order somewhere and need an extra bottle to bring the shipping cost per bottle down. It is a pretty good value for a bp rye even though it is so young.
