2009 Saz 18 gave up it's last pours tonight.
Very sad to see this one go. Excellent rye.
Bottle of Baby Saz gave up its last drops making Manhattans. Won't replace anytime soon. I know that this rye has a lot of fans but I like the Rittenhouse BIB and even Wild Turkey Rye more and they both cost less.

KC made its last bourbon and tonic last night. It did not prove to be much more than an expensive mixer for me. Maybe the single barrel is better.
I do highly recommend Fentiman's Tonic water though!
It makes an incredible drink.
Three bottles gave up their last pours in chat last night: OGD114, Lot B, & VWFRR.
All were delicious!
went down to southern Illinois near St. Louis for a big volleyball tourney for my son and brought an unopened Pappy 20. Thought there'd be more guys to help, but one other guy and I over 2 nights demolished it. He had never had it and wanted to mix it with 7up, but once he tried it over 1 small ice cube, he was hooked.
Next big tourney in Milwaukee won't see another 20, but will bring Lot B and Pappy 15 along with Stagg and a 4 Roses; hope to have more drinkers.

Weller 12 hit the bin tonight. If i'm lucky, i can convince the misses to let me bring some back from IL on the return back to MN.
I figure a little infusion of shopping money for vacation is worth something!

I recently came to the end of this bottle. It was really good and blew the doors off the current Weller 12. I'm sad its gone and that it can't be replaced but I am very thankful I got to enjoy it.
