    Killed of my bottle of Larceny, which I enjoyed although I would like it more if it wasn't so expensive here in NYC compared to some of the prices I have seen posted by SBers elsewhere. It's place on the bar was taken by a bottle of Jefferson's Reserve.

    Killed off a W12 tonight. No hurt feelings as I have a couple spares and just saw a ton on the shelf.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2013

    Today, I'm laying to rest one that I shall not miss or replace...an Old Scout pvt barrel from about this time last year I purchased at a local outfit. At $37, 7yo and 120 proof, I viewed it as an economically viable alternative to GTS. After a year of struggling with what is going on inside this bottle, I'm putting it to rest as an eggnog mixer. It was one of the few bourbons I've had that just deteriorated noticeably as the contents shrank. Even my wife, who usually ranks all bourbons the same: "too strong, too harsh, too bitter...", found it "a lot worse than the 'others' ". And that was after working it down with water to about 80-90 proof. I tried it neat and at all ranges in between 80 & 120, and it just got worse as time went by.

    Another KCSB to the bin, forcing me down to the bunker to grab (and open) another.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2013

    I drank a ton of bourbon on Saturday and I don't know if it was just the order of operations, but by the time we got to the Birthday Bourbon it was the most amazing thing we drank.

    Anyway, polished off a Yellow Label. Need to start getting this by the handle. I appreciate this stuff so much more now having had and coming to understand some delicious single barrels lately. Only 80 proofer I always keep a bottle of.
