    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    I liked the four roses yellow label, the 4 bottles that I purchased in Japan.

    I also like the one bottle of Noah Mills I tried.

    Hard to finish... (Dislike)

    Sea Wynde Rum

    RR Rye

    Templeton SB Rye

    Corner Creek


    ---------------------

    I found that if you start the night on a bottle that you like, then after a few.. switch to the brand you dont like so much. It might slow you down some, but its easier to work it down.

    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    I just finished a bottle of Old Forester. Every time I saw it in the cabinet I remembered how much I disliked it so down the drain it went.

    I like this idea, where do such empty HQ sample bottles come from?

    Here is where I have ordered from. Very well packaged bottles, at very good prcies.

    I like the Clear Boston rounds in 2 and 4 oz..Was getting some 8oz bottles as well, but found those too large (one third the bottle).

    Have found these wonderful for trading (although most of my interesting bottles have been single malts).

    Re: Just can't Finish Bottles

    I do the same thing on my "want to keep a sample for a taste comparison one day" bourbons as well.

    What I do is I get a 50 ml bottle of somthing and then fill it with said bourbon. That way I get two taste from the same bottle

    The will last years. 10+ yrs no problem as long at he lid is on tight. You will still need to keep them upright.

    I wait until the 50mls go on sale and buy a few. I usually get Bookers because I loke the bottles and I can store the side my side neatly.
