I was sad when I finished off my Lagavulin Distillers Edition, as they only sold it at the Tax Free shops. But now they sell it at my local Winemonopoly, so I am a happy camper again.

But I will be very sad the day I finish my Ardbeg Uigedahl. That is s brilliant whisky, and it is not easy to find around here.

Well, after all, you are a big Killer Whale, so I guess it takes some drams before you feel it? :)

I finished off a bottle of Balvenie 91 Port wood not so long ago. It was a lovely whisky. I must get another soon.

I'm avoiding the "empty status" by not pouring myself that SMWS Yoichi 18y, there are only a few left. And now regretting I didn't pick up their latest bottling of this distillery.

My bottle of 11 year old Imperial died a few days ago and tonight it's the turn of my Glenmorangie Artisan Cask, a delicious whisky which I hope Glenmorangie will continue to produce for a little while. I'd like to try a few more bottles before they move on to something else.

Still, this does mean there's room for a few more to be opened....

I've just poured the last of the Glengoyne 16y single cask limited edition, mini! It didn't last nearly long enough. Lucky I have another!

Just finished the Glenlivet 18. I really enjoyed this SMSW, despite it being very mainstream.

The good lady and myself finished the last of the Balvenie 14yo Roasted Malt. A bloody good dram. Will need to see if Oddbins in Glasgow have any left as we purchased it 8 weeks or so ago.

A beautifully peated PE. :dead:

Caol Ila CS OB. Not a bad dram - very drinkable. Not very complex, and the price puts me off buying another (unless its on sale) but NOTHING wrong with the dram. Rustic in a way that speaks to me unlike the Laga 12 CS OB.

Smokey, Sulphery (but blends in well) with some iodine. Flavours front and centre - nothing subtle.

The Glenmorangie Cellar 13 died a week or so back and a Caol Ila 12 last night. Although I have more of the same in stock and thoroughly enjoyed them I'll be looking to something different in each case.

Gotta agree with this!

Laga 12 was gone - soooo sad. Then the liquor board brought in some more - now I'm much happier (and poorer)! If it wasn't so damn expensive, I think I'd get a case...

Not my last bottle yet but finished my current bottle of Ardbeg Still Young. I still think I prefer Almost There but each of the 'evolution' series is different. This one is a little zingy from youth but wow what a finish!

Sad to see empty, i'm sure most have had bottles that you'll never have again for whatevr reason.

Does anyone have an views about keeping labels?

I've considered collecting labels in the past but to date have done nothing. There is a product (sort of a tape) available for removing and keeping wine labels.

To date I have kept about 20 empty bottles around because they represented something special in my life or they were just way cool.

I think LFW do something with removing safely Whisky bottle labels. So as to keep them.

They do indeed Les, but at 75p each and £22.99 for the binder it may be cheaper to build an extension to house the empty bottles!
