    Don't you hate that? I have bottles that I would like to open but resist in order to maintain a reasonable number of open bottles. I know, I know....if you have it...drink it. I have over 200 bottles and I don't think it would be good to open that many. I keep somewhere between 15-20 bottles open at a time.

    Very nice. you seem to be acquiring quite a few "very aged" bourbons lately.

    Keep us posted on your tasting notes !!!

    Well, I have found that the tastes are changing on many of my favorites... I really want to keep them around, but they are not going to be the same in a year... I need to enjoy them before they lose what I like about them....

    I know that this will bring some flame, but I think that you need to drink an open bottle within 6 months... after that, it just is not the same... although a never opened bottle will last years (many years) a half open bottle does not......

    Today I picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig & Old Grand Dad. I realized after I got home I missed picking one up but I'll take care of that tomorrow.

    OGD BIB and Buffalo Trace. Both of these were early in my journey and time to revist them.

    WT Kentucky Spirit finally hit my local store, so I grabbed a bottle today.

    It's been hell week for me on-call and I've not gotten more than 3-4 hours of uninterrupted sleep all week. I'm going to enjoy a pour of this after my nap.
