    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    There's very few bourbon's that I dislike...most I like or love and gladly pour away. One exception is the gold foil Hirsch. I don't like it so I actually used that the other day to make a whiskey sour.....sacrilege, maybe.....drinkable..definitely.

    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    Once a bottle is opened, it gets finished. Stuff that I know I can't replace usually remains unopened until a special occassion presents itself. But once opened - down the hatch.

    I can only recall pouring down the drain three bottles of "bad" hooch - a couple of Michter's jugs where the whisky was tainted by the ceramic, a Van Winkle New Jersey Centennial commemorative (same reason), and a liter of JW Dant BIB that was just foul.

    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    When I open a bottle, I save 4oz and 2oz in high quality sample bottles, so I can have access to nice, fresh, non (or at least low) oxidizaed samples long after the bottle is finished. This lowers the stress of finishing a soon to be difficult to find botteling.

    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    I don't have the problem either...

    If it's bad it goes into mixed drinks. If it's really bad it goes down the drain (only did that twice).

    For the good stuff, I make it a point to finish off any bottle that gets down to the last coupla pours. It hurts sometimes, but that's what the "empty bottle support group" is for.

    Only had to drain one bottle...and that was EW 1783. It was just foul and it was not just me. We opened it one New Year's and couldn't even mix it with anything. Everything else has been rightfully flushed through the ol' liver.

    I had read that somewhere on here....but it had more of a kerosene flavor. My stomach churns when I think about it. I'll have to try it again when I'm out....so I don't waste a bottle again.

    Noah's Mill....that stuff is like firewater. I just can't get it down...and it's going out as a sample for my upcoming tasting session. Who ever likes it the most, is taking it home with them!
