    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group

    Last night finished a bottle of Saz 18. It's been sitting there with a couple of ounces for a while. I guess I was avoiding it because I only have one bottle left and am not optimistic about finding any more. It'll probably be some time before I open it.

    Weekend before last a liquor store manager (one who I believe know's what he's talking about) told me that Oregon will not receive any 2008 BTAC unless sales of BT (the bourbon by that name, not any BT brand) reach some minimal threshold level. No way to know if that's going to happen.

    Four Roses Single Barrel, Party Source edition. A goodie.

    Woodford Reserve. Maybe revisiting this bottle answers why it has taken so long to empty....

    Jameson 12yo, an older bottling/label (c. late-'80s, early-'90s). Much more copper influence than more recent issues, which leads me to wonder if it wasn't early after a re-coppering -- with today's bottles from a more-scoured pot still.
    Anyway, it was an interesting stylistic note, not the prominent sense in so aged a whiskey, so not nearly distracting and offensive as an American distiller's recent 'copper-kettle' bottling.

    Do you think the PS edition was appreciably different from the regular FRSB?

    I like the concept of SB versions of expressions that usually aren't available that way (e.g., BT). But a SB of FR is, well, a SB of FR. Can / will a selection that someone makes from a handful of pre-selected single barrels that were destined for a SB bottling be significantly more special than any other SB bottling?

    John,

    A different yeast strain was used in the Party Source edition to the regular FR Single Barrel.

    It was a little different, though perhaps no more so than any two bottles from different barrels.
