    Nicely done, BB!
    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.

    Are you saying you fart into your glass? I guess that's one way of keeping a consistent profile...

    Hopefully it's clear that the marbles go into the glass, although your interpretation is certainly interesting.

    Re: Rye and aeration

    I posted this a couple years ago in the 'show stash' thread. I just recalculated how long the 30ml of Old Rip Van Winkle Old Time Rye must have sat in the bottle: at least 14 months. It was still surprisingly excellent after all that time.

This rye is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-RYE WHISKEY!!"

    I think the real question that needs answering is whether this is a Saz 18 phenomenon or a old rye phenomenon.

Whatever the case may be, we thoroughly enjoyed our pours last night and will move on to a bottle of VWFRR that's now down to two inches after sitting for a long spell.
    Went back yet again last night to the Saz 18 and I truly can see no drop-off whatsoever in this bottle. (It is a Fall 2007 release which I opened in the summer of 2009, so it's been open nearly three years.) I thought I detected a slight fade in spice last time around, replaced by a touch more sweetness. But last night's pour was full of spice and had a nice long finish, so I don't know what to say about your bottle diminishing in quality.

    I plan to open a new bottle of VWFRR this week and compare it side-by-side with my long-open bottle of VW to see if there's any significant difference. They are both "I" bottles purchased together several years ago and I'm curious to see what changes may have occurred in the one that's been open over two years.
