    Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    You asked for it. Here it is. Deposit 2012 empties here. I'll start it off with some 50 mils that the bowling team helped me drain last week.

    JB White, JB Black, WT 80, WT 101, dusty Old Forester 86 proof, and current Old Forester 86 proof were all finished last Wednesday.

    A 375mL of OWA 107 was just killed off. One tall glass for the evening emptied the bottle out.

    I will say the 12 ounce hip-flask-shaped bottle is darn cool. It's just my size for an evening It got kept and may well be reused.

    A mini WT 101 and a Col EH Taylor Sour Mash was emptied over the weekend. Glad I have another of both!

    It's 50 degrees in Chicago in January. The trees are bare and the birds are gone, but I'm trying to do some Spring cleaning! I finished a recently found bottle of 2005 OFBB (cost less than $30). A very nice expression, but the bottle took up way too much space in my liquor cabinet; it wasn't quite good enough to warrant all that real estate.

    I also killed a bottle of Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve, to my great relief. The bottle was a bit of a puzzler for me. I really didn't like it until the last few drops of the bottle. I would definitely not spend the $60 for another one, but I did start to pick up on a subtle seasoning behind the broad, woody entry. It wasn't my thing, but it did have an impressive amount of complexity for an 80-proofer.

    Polished off a bottle of Rebel Reserve, RRBIB and WTRye. Sucks having so many bottles with 1-2 drinks left in them, feels like shit when you empty them.

    Polished off my bottle of Wathens single barrel over the weekend. Charles Medley, the distiller, signed it when he visited Vine and Table here in Carmel, IN.

    Yeah, I display this strange phenomenon where all my bottles seem to go empty at the same time.

    Took a 3/4ths full liter of ND Old Taylor to an Epiphany party to some guys who appreciate good bourbon. It did not make it home.
