    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2013

    Killed a couple bottles last night while watching Black Hawk Down with my South African neighbor who had never seen it before. We killed a 1789b FR OBSF P/C #4, OWA #10, and a Heritage Liquors Blanton's. I've never really been a huge fan of Blanton's but this bottling has a velvet buttery mouth feel that is so unique that I picked up a couple bottles for the bunker. Thanks Bradley C! In Colorado these are going for $39 a bottle so the price point is tolerable vs. the $55 they sell this for in Illinois.

    Yep...he also shared that bottle at a gather at my house as well...great guy and great bourbon! Thanks again for sharing Charlie!

    A neighbor came over tonight and helped me finish off a bottle of ER10 that's been open for about 3 years.

    Did it still have the burnt-rope tannins after all that air-time? I've got a bottle that's pretty old and 3/4 full as well.

    Finished my bottle of Elmer T Lee's namesake. Shame is, it's not available in my state... so it will not be easily replaced.

    First, a solid movie and very thought provoking. Second, Blanton's is a solid bourbon. Among my favorites, except the price makes it a less frequent pour than I would prefer. Velvet, buttery smooth is a great description. $39 is a great price. Still not sure that would make it a regular pour for me but it certainly would make it a more frequent choice.

    Trying to empty some of the open bottles in my bunker. Finished off an OC10. It is 86 proof but a solid pour. I might buy another bottle once the bunker empties out some.
