    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2013

    Finished off a special one tonight. Binny's EC18. One of my all time favorites. I don't think I'll be lucky enough to have this one again, but you never know. If I had a time machine this is one that I'd go back a few years for and buy a case. For the price then it was highway robbery.

    Based on the font, I'd say that was distilled in '90 or '91 and bottled in '11 or '12. I don't recall seeing any Binny's bottles distilled after 1992, so the ones from 2011/2012 were 19-22 years old.

    All of the Binny's EC18s were good, but one of my favorite all time HH expressions was Binny's EC18 distilled 5/15/92. That was bottled in 2010 and the hand selected font was larger and I think italicized. I still have a few of those in my bunker, so perhaps you will taste it someday...

    Tough, tough loss. 9 yr 125 proof wheater. Luckily one in the bunker. If this was Twitter I would probably add #willettslut

    Just curious, how did you know this was a wheater? Kudos to you as I have never heard reference to a 9 year wheater offereded by WFE. What do you conclude as the source?

    Didn't know for sure until tasting, but bought the one pictured on the recommendation of the whiskey buyer at a local chain. He told me it was a wheater after being involved in the selection so I took it on faith. After opening and tasting quickly bought the backup. Shared w friends and we all concluded that it had to be BT. Compares very favorably to the WLW's. Also had it confirmed by another source that it is BT juice. So there you go best I can say without confirmation from KBD.
