    I agree. I knocked my 1.75ml bottle off last night and will replace it soon, as it is a favorite among my friends when they stop by for an afternoon of football.

    Settling in and getting ready for some football, putting the finishing touches on a WLW 12.

    Polished off Dickel #12 today. Don't know when another (or any other Tennessee whiskey, although I'm somewhat tempted by JDSB) will make it to my shelf.

    Finished up an ETL and a Ritt 100. I've never had a bad bottle of ETL. The Ritt, on the other hand, just never did it for me; almost unpalatable.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    I have space for two more bottles in my cabinet after toppling a 2008 OFBday. I really enjoyed this bottle (perhaps evidenced by the fact that it lasted a mere two weeks). An unmistakably dilly entrance segued into a very fruity palate (think grape juice) balanced with layered vanilla and tempered by a watery quality that took the edge off just right. The finish added an appropriate wood for an altogether scrumptious and very drinkable bourbon. I'd pick up another one at $30 in a heartbeat, even $40. The $56 a store near me wants for theirs... well I'll see how I feel in a month or two - if it's still there.

    Polished off the last of a bottle of ORVW 10 107 last night. Had a couple pours with a steak and then a couple more while eating these home made cookies the wife made, some sort of thumb print chocolate cookie with a maraschino cherry in the depression and toped with home made chocolate frosting. Holy crap those things are adictive! And realy good with ORVW. I can't get her to add a little bourbon to the frosting.

    Those cookies are killer. My mom made those for years, and passed the recipe down to my wife, who makes them every Christmas. Crap, now you got me pining for them for the next 3 months!!

    I killed another OGD114. What a great casual drinker this stuff is, and such an outlier among the Beam bunch. There's nothing particularly interesting about this stuff, but I find it to be a very clean, orange-vanilla-hinted sipper with a nice mouth-feel and a kick that can be a hoof to your puss if you're not too careful. I'm sure it will be replaced shortly.
