    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    The last pour of a 116 proof Four Roses 120th has hit the glass.

    I'm glad that I 'overbought' on this one.

    How long did that last you? Mine has been open for a week or two, and it's still pretty stiff. I'm waiting for it to open up a bit, but it may just be that it hits a 4R profile that I like less. It's still gorgeous, but definitely flatter (so far) than the 2011 LESmB and LE1B. It reminds me more of the 2010 LESmB.

    I finally poured the last of a '99 EWSB Binny's barrel. Drinking it as I post. Not a fan of this. I'll give it credit for covering a fair amount of ground with a sweet entry, mild palate and bitter/grassy finish, but it's the finish that really turns me off. Easy enough to drink at 86.6pf, but this bottle alone made me run through 2 bottles of the PHC cognac; after a few bites of this stuff, the PHC echoes the profile, but expresses it majestically.

    I also kicked a CEHT1B last night. Good stuff, but I say that sarcastically. It was good stuff when it was ER1B and cost $30. For $75, mild and inoffensive is not what I'm looking for.

    I was sad to see a WSR 7/90 Lville liter go away. Luckily it was one of four I found, and for $20 a pop, I'm keenly on the lookout for more!

    The last of two bottles. A PVW 15 and 20.

    I'm glad I've got more to tide me over.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what is CEHT1B?

    Col. E.H. Taylor Single Barrel, produced by Buffalo Trace.

    In my opinion, a decent whiskey but wildly overpriced at $70+.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    JPSR '17 had its dying pour last night and was given its last rites with a San Lotano Oval. I really liked the '17 and with the abundance of the '18 I will have to get a replacement, but at ~$80-90 may be a while.
