I finished up an ORVW 10/107 last night. Sad to see it gone, but its last pour was a friend's first pour of ORVW, can't think of a better way for it to go.
Said goodbye to the Tornado tonight, but like the previous poster it died with a final pour for me and half a pour to a bourbon newby. It was enjoyed by both. Fortunately we will meet again.
Finished off bottles of Redbreast 12 and Tyrconnell Single Malt. Never did fall in love with the latter, though that shouldn't dissuade others from giving it a try. I just found its nose unusual and I never figured out why.

Finished off a few more in the past two or three weeks. WTRB 01-99, ORVW 10/107, WT 101, Weller 12 and a Weller SR have all gone to the big recycle bin in the sky.

Old Forester Signature bit the dust today. This was a new one to me, not too expensive, and I went in with pretty much no preconceptions. I went through it fast and it'll be replaced soon. Just a good everyday pour.
Charter Private Reserve hits the bottle wall today. We take our old bottles, mix a little concrete or mortar, and continue our retaining wall beautification project with them.

I just took the last taste from my bottle of FR 08 Mariage. I am crying. On the inside. A lot. I'm bawling my eyes out. On the inside. I don't know that I have lamented the end of a bottle of whiskey as much as do this one. It was really just so perfect. Sweet, syrupy, blackberry bubblegum, full, coating body, spicy finish with a slight bite but heat at a minimum. I loved it. There I said it. I have no more. No more...

CEHT Single Barrel...I'd consider another if I could get it out the door at $50. Its shorter finish does frustrates following the superb promise from the nose and initial entry.
Four Roses Single Barrel, really enjoyed this bottle.
Best regards, Tony
