    Threshold for Cracking Open A Special Bottle

    I held a bottle of PVW23 for about 8 months before opening, and when I did I found it to be a relief.
    I no longer had that "I can't open that, it's special" feeling. Two weeks later or so it was empty, and it went in the recycle bin like any other bottle.

    Re: Threshold for Cracking Open A Special Bottle

    Like many others have said, there doesn't need to be a reason other than wanting the whiskey in your mouth. I can't keep my bottles sealed for the life of me - I have about 12 at any one time and they are all open. That said, I have certainly bought special bottles for a specific occasion - graduation, engagement etc.

    Mike - I seem to have that problem also.

    I don't need a special occasion to open a bottle. I've opened a VVOF 12 just because it arrived in the mail.

    Whiskey is for drinking, and sharing it is even better!

    I agree, and if I feel the need to drink something special on a special occasion, I usually have at least a few special bottles already opened that I'm more than happy to revisit.

    In the same vain as others - this morning I opened my eyes, good enough reason to open any bottle.

    Like VTMike - my pattern is I have too many open bottles, drink those to deplete the supply, panic I don't have enough open and start opening more bottles. Rinse & repeat.

    Couldn't agree more ... the only reason I wait to open a bottle is because I want to share it with others so they can enjoy the experience.
    Sto lat!!!
