Heelslaying, or bottle ends in March

When the year started I announced how much smaller my collection had to be by the end of the year. Then, as more people were planning such escapades there was a twitter hashtag with updates on emptied bottles. I posted there too but haven’t in a while.

March, obviously, was not spent detoxing but things went as they also do. With a dram here and there. I managed to go through some samples and some bottle ends, sometimes by hilariously underestimating how much booze fits in the bottom centimeter of a bottle, and thereby drinking quite a bit more than I anticipated.

By sometimes drinking too much on a school night, I managed to finish:

(Apparently, I forgot to review the Hibiki and the P&M…)

Also, I went through some samples. Some commercial ones and a couple I traded or bought myself. In both categories were some awesome ones with one review pending for tomorrow.

Let’s say it hasn’t been a bad month. My whisky collection is shrinking nicely and almost needs a shelf less than it did when the year started. Of course, I’m nowhere near completion and that still is going to be challenging. But, when I finally get around to hosting that Bottoms-Up tasting I’ve been planning it should all work out, or at least help tremendously!

Also, just to rub it in. Some of these whiskies are bloody awesome. I’ll miss the Clynelish and GlenDronach most I think. And of some of those samples I wish I had a bottle…
