How about a third option? Over 3 weeks? At the prices they charge in Canada for decent or better 750 ml Single Malts and the limited amount of dramming that I have time to do over the course of a month, it would take me anywhere from a year to three years to finish off a bottle. In some rare circumstances it takes a decade just to get around to opening one.
Mind you, at present I have 60 bottles open in various levels of depredation including the following at well below the 50% mark:
ROYAL BRACKLA,(Hart Bros) 18yo
BALVENIE, THE PORTWOOD 21yo
CAOL ILA 11yo
GLENDRONACH Sherry cask 15yo
HIGHLAND PARK 1977
HIGHLAND PARK 18 yo
ROYAL LOCHNAGAR, RM 23yo (59.7 % VOL)
ROYAL LOCHNAGAR, RM 30 yo(56.2 % VOL)
PORT ELLEN 22 yo (1979) Cask Btl # 3038
ST. MAGDALENE 21yo Cask Str
SINGLETON of AUCHROISK 1981 (I've had this one for 14 years)
As some of these bottles ranged in price from $130 - 240.00 CDN, I am loath to drain them rapidly. In the interests of sharing , I'm going to offer them up for the next tasting I hold entitled "Lets' Drain Pete's Dregs".
This will also open up a dozen spots for new or replacement drams.
