    Re: Disappointment of the year?

    I think just having the 6 is more deceptive than say, "Old number 6" or whatever. This is more along the lines of Old Ezra with a "90" on the necker and actually being 80 proof.

    My biggest disappointment so far is the recent discontinuation of Very Old Heaven Hill 8/86 in Minnesota. I realize that it only effects a few of us here, but keep in mind we don't get VOB anyway.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Re: Disappointment of the year?

    I guess my disappointment of the year is that whatever teetotaler orders whiskey for the State of Utah dropped the ball and didn't place an order for Van Winkle or BTAC.... Right after Old Rip 10/107 got added to the state list. Sigh.

    My biggest disappointment was the current version of Pappy van Winkle 15 yr. Fortunately, I was able to taste some before I wasted my money on a bottle.

    Re: Disappointment of the year?

    My biggest disappointment of the year was being totally out of "fun money" and seeing three bottles of OFBB 2013 in the special-bottle cabinet at a favorite store.

    They were gone when I stopped in a week later. Carpe diem, indeed.

    Re: Disappointment of the year?

    Tomorrow is Christmas. There are numerous threads on this site that have just been beat to death with post after post saying the same thing over and over, oft times by the same individuals. Yet in the Happy Holidays thread, only five members have responded to wish their fellow members here a Merry Christmas.

    To me, that's a big disappointment.

    Cheers and Merry Christmas! Joe

    I think most people (at least I do) watch the most recent activity/What's New feed. Merry Christmas Joe!
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
