I've just finished a bottle Talisker 10 year old. Its been a slow burner, a faithful old friend that was always there. I almost couldn't bring myself to polish off the final measure.

Its time to move on now though... what was the last bottle you finished?

The last botte I finished was my Ardbeg 10yr. I did not fully appreciate it until the end either. It took a while for it to grow on me and now I miss it dearly!!

Dewar's White Label... Yuck. It tasted as much like tequila as it did whiskey... Never again.

Last bottle was the Glenfiddich 21 year old Gran Reserva. Good dram, but fairly expensive to replace... ;)

The last bottle I finished was an Auchentoshan (what else?) 12 Year Old. Have several other bottles with only a few measures left in them though. Good thing the holidays are coming up... Need to restock soon.

I finished off a bottle of Glenrothes that I'd been nursing for a while when an old friend came into town. We had a bit of an informal scotch tasting, and that bottle was finally killed. I hated throwing it away, even though I already had a replacement bottle waiting in the reserves!

My most recently finished was my first bottle of Cragganmore 12, a Speyside malt that I find to be excellent all around. It's a little lighter than the Macallan 12, but with similar bite and a nice, lingering finish. A second bottle has already taken its place.

Last bottle was a Talisker 18 year old; I usually have two or three bottles open at once, as what I fancy drinking depends on my mood. The Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist is more of a one-dram-a-day kind of whisky, but the Talisker goes down far too fast ;)

I suspect the next bottle I finish will be the one I most recently opened - the Kilchoman 2009 Autumn Release; wonderfully drinkable, from an exciting new distillery (indeed, sufficiently new that it's not listed here!)

Ardbeg Uigeadail. Thank God I have four more bottles! @wibcasto, a year ago I would not have believed it myself, but there are some very good tequilas. I will avoid the Dewar's White Label, as you recommend.

I've just finished a four roses single barrell, one of my favourite bourbons. I'd like to buy another one but there's so many others i need to try.

I am putting off finishing any of my bottles... I have an HP 12, a Laphroaig 10, an anCnoc 12 and a Buffalo Trace Bourbon that are all perilously close to their demise... I may have to see my HP off tonight...

Just finished my Guillon (French whisky) and Jura 10. Several bottles only have one or two measures left, so more will be sent to the Whisky Walhalla shortly, such as a Laddie 17 Rum Cask and Toshan 3-Wood.

Over the week a number of bottles have died. Laphroaig 10 yr old, Ardbeg Corryvrecken, Glengoyne 10yr old, Dalwhinne 15 yr old and Balvenie Double Wood. Tonight will see the end of the Chivas Regal 12 and most sad of all my remaining bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail.

Waiting for my prize of 4 Cooley whiskies to arrive to top my stock up as price crunch taken a bite out of my whisky money. :o(

Actually we finished two in the same night; Caol Ila chieftan and The Balvenie doublewood. The Caol ila is a strong wiskey; a winter warmer that I found very agreeabl. The Balvenie was more cultured if you will. Tho nose with a few drops of water was really nice and complex.

Last week I polished off the dregs from my bottles of Glenlivet 18, Lavagulin 12, Glenrothes 1991, and Bruichladdich Rocks.

It's always difficult to consign a bottle to history by finishing it completely, but what encouraged me into it was that the levels had gotten pretty low, and various experts on the topic have told me that any time a bottle gets below halfway you should finish it within 6-12 months or risk oxidation effects.

Glenmorangie Madeira Wood Finish. Too bad Glenmorangie no longer makes this expression.

I have an unopened bottle of Glenmorangie Madeira Wood Finish waiting me in the cabinet. I am working on a bottle of their Port Wood Finish, and waiting until it is gone before opening the Madeira Wood Finish.

Finishing off a Glenrothes 1991, Laga 12, and Bruichladdich Rocks in the same week? Ouch... What did you buy/open to celebrate their demise?

@jwise Oh it was just that I shifted house last weekend, and I figured it made more sense to put those bottles out of their misery than it did to waste time hauling bottles mostly full of air around the place. It seems the Universe doesn't want me to reclaim any shelf space though, because 3 days later I got an email to tell me I'd won 3 x 100mL bottles of Glenrothes from an online competition I entered a while back...

Now, to give the remains of this bottle of Macallan 18 Fine Oak what for...

Mac 18 FINE OAK? I've heard of the 17 Fine Oak, but never the 18 FO. Hmmm....

So, you were one of the winners in the Glenrothes sweepstakes? I guess that means I DID NOT win the free trip to the distillery in May. :( Which bottles did they send you? I have quite a few bottles of Glenrothes.

@jasonbstanding

@jwise Well, that's what it do say on the label (twitpic.com/4324gu). Glenrothes was Select Reserve, 1998 and 1988. Bottles haven't arrived just yet, so you've still got opportunity to hijack the post!
