    Empty Bottle Support Group 2014

    ECBP batch 1, FRSB, Ritt BIB and OGD BIB hit the recycle bin after "heavy use" over the holidays.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2014

    I emptied my bottle of Pappy 23 and really can't say I'm that sorry to see it go. It was excellent Bourbon and I don't regret buying, nor drinking, nor sharing it waith friends; but it's become such a 'unicorn' in the last few years that I'm kinda glad it's no longer taking up space on my shelf. I may have to find a spot for the empty bottle, however.... It's signed by JVWIII.

    Finished off a W12 last night. I know some of you think it has gone down hill in the past year or so, but the bottle I had was excellent.

    Fill it with SB blend and share with friends who are free of the whiskey nervosa curse! They will probably never know the differnece and think you are a demi-god...
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    And that's probably the reason those empties are on ebay (for more than unopened bottles of other really decent bourbons at liquor stores!)

    Seems almost a certainty. I am inclined more and more to break bottles of this sort before I dispose of them.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2014

    I forgot I had a Taylor Tornado open, with only a pour or so left. It wasn't in the proper place on my shelf. I forgot I moved it. It is now history. Sure glad I have a few more stashed away. Anyway, that, and a Binny's Weller 12 will soon be on their way to recycling heaven.

    Cheers! Joe

    That would be, at a minimum, disingenuous, no? I figure, if they knew enough to respect a bottle of Pappy-23 for what it is, rather than for the hype; then, they'll like a pour of some other nice Bourbon. If all I wanted was to impress fools, I guess I could refill it with ordinary stuff, and serve it to someone I don't really care much about... but, where would the fun be in that?

    The biggest issue with the refill plan is that you must then proceed to let fools into your house.

    Unfortunately that is almost unavoidable. But as a good host it is important to be prepared!

    I remember reading a story back when I first joined, which I think was on this site, about someones good friend, who was otherwise a good guy, but had a nasty habit of going straight for the host better bottles of bourbon and guzzling it by the glass without regard for what it was with the primary purpose of drinking for effect.

    Although in that case, given the potential shortages of OWA and Weller 12 these days, even the SB Blend might be too good for him...
