    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group New & Improved

    Polished off a VWFRR ('08 'A' series) last night, making room for a Rittenhouse BIB. Sad to see the VWFRR go but can't wait to crack another Rittenhouse. :]

    I emptied a W. L. Weller Special Reserve and a Hancock President's Reserve over the weekend. Certainly two very different bourbons. The Hancock had that characteristic BT earthiness in spades.

    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group New & Improved

    I've got 3 to add...

    1- EWSB 98 - glad to see it go over thanksgiving day. Shared with the family

    2- WTRB - damn fine bottle - glad I have a second in the bunker

    3- ORVW 10/107 Was a sad one to see go.. and unfortunately it did not leave peacefully.. there was about 5-6 ounces left, from a bottle I started 2 months ago. that last bit had turned quite oxidized.

    From there I noticed that the last of the WTRB tasted off too. So I made some calls and located 2 bottles of wine preserver gas. won't let that happen again.

    See the other thread on Buffalo Trace discontinued bottlings.

    They're no longer making OCPR 13 yr old, or Weller Centennial.

    Are those now each a "ghost whiskey"?

    Is there more pain when emptying a bottle of a "ghost" bourbon?

    Just finished off a ORVW 15 and yes there is more pain when you come to the end of a "ghost" bourbon. I still have 2 left in the bunker to ease the pain, however.

    I am currently being haunted by the ghost of Old Overholt himself. Now for what remains of Mr. Rittenhouse..

    Josh, i have one i rescued after 15 years of dusty shelf life we can try. Not quite an exorcism, but it might help.

    A Baker's from several years back (my wife's first contribution to my collection/addiction) -- a pint flask of modern-era OGD BIB about to follow!
