    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    In the last two + weeks, I finished off a number of bottles I had open. All good ones too. Gone, but not forgotten are; ORVW 10/90, ER 101, Weller Centennial, AA BIB, EW BIB, and a private bottling of ERSB. I now have some room on my open shelf. It might just be time to open a couple more bottles. Cheers! Joe

    Very nice lineup Joe.

    For me the last 2 weeks:

    Taylor Tornado
    TPS 1792
    TPS JPS 18
    PHC Wheater
    EWSB '00

    I will miss them all. But only until I decide to crack another one..

    as you can see, there's barely any left and I finished it off during the show and switched to 4R yellow label with the screw top--very mild

    Well this is the last of the two bottles I acquired of the 2011 WLW. It's right there tied with PVW20 as my favorite bourbon of all time. Sorry to see it go but the stuff is made to be drunk IMHO, not to sit on a shelf forever. Now to find a way to get out the little remaining bourbon without all the barrel char!

    Seriously though, I can't imagine that stuff being good for you... but now that I think about it, this is alcohol so... yeah.

    It's very good for you. Firstly, that thar char will suck up the pizuns in yer body. Secondly, itsa better than fiber in keepin' youins reglar. And thirdly, chewin' it in amongst yer teeth will give em the best cleanin' theyz ever had...and keep yer breath fresh.

    It's basically a nuther whiskey miracle...

    Yup, drink that up! It'll help clean your guts and your digestion too. In a good way! Folks take powdered charcoal tablets in daily doses for a variety of problems.

    With comments like yours I may have to break down and pick one up. I know of a few hanging around....

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    Finally said good-bye to that JBB 7/90 I picked up. It taught me that older does not guarantee better. Sure it was a little stronger than today's version, but everything else about this version seemed like an early experimentation.

    This will be replaced... But with the newer version.
