    Also killed off a bottle of Bulleit rye but was too hammered by then to post about it. Now I have some free space to open up a few more new bottles.

    WLW 07 is an excellent pour, certainly hated to see that one go. Fortunately the bourbon gods were nice to me as I had found 3 of them on a shelf about 3 years after they were released.

    I find this type of "dusty find" most unusual. This find was a busy store with a large inventory on a main street.

    Will, that is pretty unusual for our area. Those days are over now.

    I agree that WLW 07 is excellent. Too bad I got into bourbon only a couple years ago. Was lucky enough to at least find one bottle. Feel fortunate for even finding one.

    VOB BIB did not survive too see the clock strike midnight. V17 was killed today, RIP. Old Fitz BIB will not see Jan 2nd.

    The last pour of a '09 GTS hit the glass. This is a "dirty" pour if ever one. Loads of char, after some water, looks like murky, peaty water.

    But going to enjoy every last drop!

    Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    Finished off a bottle of bulleit and eagle rare 10yr at my family Xmas party last Saturday. Sharing will so that I suppose, though they weren't full at the time.

    Tony,

    I completely agree with your comments.

    What I've found is that older stuff just shows up in stores from time to time in such a manner that I think there are bottles lost in the retail stores. Monday I when into a store that is near me that I've been in frequently. I asked about rye and from under the counter up came a Thomas H Handy stored away.

    What I think happened with the WLW07 that I found was a lost case (a case is three bottles) just recent placed on the retail shelves.

    I've found dusty bottles in stores that suddenly appeared not having been on the shelves earlier in time. It never hurts to hunt if you are so inclined.

    Will

    I am a true believer that it is better to be lucky than good. It is usually about being at the right place at the right time.

    I know of a store with THH in the area with several different years. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    So true. My daughter had trouble with that concept when she was younger.
