    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    After trying straight, with ice, in coke, ginger ale, splash of water and cooking with it, I finally gave up and poured the last of a bottle of Evan Williams Black down the drain. Just glad it was cheap, because I have had nothing that was as bad as that swill.

    Life is too short to drink crap like that... No matter how cheap it is.

    Blantons tonight.

    Not the best bottle that I've had of it, but solid.

    OGD 114. Luscious. Fortunately, there is more.
    And here's a trivia question for Chuck Cowdery or anyone who might know: The picture of the gentleman on the label--is that the real Basil Hayden or just a generic "old grand dad"?

    WTRB finished. Enjoyed it with some WT 101. Ordinarily I would have said that 101 was just as pleasant as the Rare Breed but today the RB surely tasted better. Lovely caramel and citrus notes and a nice, long finish.
    My wife, tasting blind, said the RB was lower proof than the 101. Not so. It is just a little less rough around the edges. Both offer a great deal to like. Half the handle of WT 101 is left. Guess I'll have to get some more RB so we can continue comparing.

    Willett 3 yr Rye - gone. Not as interesting as others have been, but improved in the bottle. Will open a 5 year next.

    Finished a bottled VW Lot B 12yr last night. I really liked it and the bottle didn't last long in my liquor cabinet. Since its pretty much Weller 12, it's amazing what barrel selection can do as its so different from Weller 12. This bottle was fabulous, the Van Winkles sure know how to pick the best barrels!

    Several bit the dust in the past week. Four Roses Ltd. Ed. Single Barrel 2009, TPS Buffalo Trace (started well, but that bottle didn't finish strong) and Col. EH Taylor Old Fashioned Sour Mash (1st ed.).

    So long to Famous Grouse 12 and Old Potrero Rye (90 proof). Will be replacing the latter soon!

    Killed a DSP-KY-31 distilled and bottled JW Dant. very minty, almost undrinkable, but mixed with ginger ale just fine.

    Also a Walker's DeLuxe from the early 80's. Neither will be replaced. Just too much good stuff out there right now.

    Today it was Weller 12 YO. There's something about the end of the bottle that makes me go all nostalgic. As always, I cry at the end of ol' Weller.
