    Empty Bottles Support Group

    We all know how hard it is to finish a bottle of whiskey, especially one that cannot be easily replaced. It's hard, but it's part of life.

    This thread is for saying goodbye to special friends as they become empty vessels, a fate that awaits us all.

    For me tonight, Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey.

    I liked it, didn't love it, but it's hard to say goodbye because I don't know when I'll see another bottle. Has anyone bought this more than once?

    Chuck,

    Itís hard to finish a bottle that canít be replaced. However I try to save old bottles and when I lock at the empty bottle I do remember the taste and that is actually some kind of a relief to me.

    Did you like the Berhneim good enough to buy another bottle if you see it? It's around a $50 bottle isn't it? Hard for me to buy more than one at that price, if I only "like it, not love it".

    I do hang on to the occasional empty (WT12, for example).

    I am getting quite low on Bernhiem. I will likely replace it, but maybe not soon.

    I have a few, but the most ridiculous one is a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye BIB DSP 31 with enough in it for about 2 good pours. I keep opening up the new DSP's and setting this one behind them. It's really stupid because I like the new DSP just as much as the DSP 31.

    I'm gonna try to bite the bullet this weekend and kill it off. What's really pitiful is that I have a back up DSP 31 that I haven't opened.

    Bernheim is all over the place here in KY for under $40. I just picked up a bottle a few days ago since it is one of my wife's favorites. I just said goodbye to a bottle of Rittenhouse BIB that I paid $15 for. I can't find anymore around here. If I could I'd buy several bottles.

    I will probably have a sniffle or two later this evening as I polish off a bottle of 2004 Stagg. This will be the 4th, and each one is hard to do. The primary reason is that it was the Holy Grail for me early in my Bourbon exploring world, and I had gotten to the point that I thought I may never, ever see one. Well, good ol' Cliff changed that by hooking me up with a couple of bottles at the 04 KBF, and I was off to the races. Now, I've accumulated a pretty good stash of Staggs, but throwing out a dead soldier of this beautiful bottle is hard to do.
