It has taken me a year to find this thread (there are a ton of threads on this site). I am a huge WT fan...

I would love to see the 2008 calendar addition :D

Are you missing anything... I might have a couple you need before I open them. I would love to add to a work of art like this :bowdown:


And Oscar, is this still your desktop image :p

Thats not even his full collection.

Spun,

That pic is from about 3 years ago, and yes...the flock has spread it's wings since then! There's one I have been chasing that has eluded me, but Attila has kept his eyes peeled and we are working on taming this wild bird at the moment! It's a Stampede '55.
I have 26 (I think) different WT offerings, and I wouldn't have half of them without this site and the great people on it!
Thanks Jim, and everyone who has helped me out at one time or another!

David, I had the two particular bottles in the photo a few years back, but without your help I wouldn't have seen more, and certainly wouldn't have been able to bring myself to open them!!
I'll get a current picture up soon

Hey Scott,
I have 27 different WT labels, just got another one today.
We are going to have to do a HighTower vs. Hightower Turkey face off.
Your collection is better than mine at the top end I think.

I changed my destop pic a couple of weeks ago.
Click on the thumb below this is what I now have.
It is the Sombrero Galaxy it is 50,000 light-years across and 28 million light-years from Earth.
Do a Google on it, lots of cool info and pics from the Hubble.
I saw it up in the sky one night without a telescope after drinking a bottle of Stagg.:grin:

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c132/dickheadofthemonth/CrazyBirds.jpg

Yeah, I got the Heritage!
Here's what we have
Top Row (L-R): Tradition, Tribute 110 Japan, Tribute 101 US, WT 17yo Japan, Freedom, Kentucky Spirit (9-20-94), Kentucky Legend 101.
Middle Row: American Honey, Kentucky Legend Barrel Proof, RR 90, WT American Spirit, Master Distiller Selection 14yo Japan, Rare Breed (WT-01-91),
Heritage, RR Rye, Stampede, Honey Liqueur.
Bottom Row: Sherry Signature, 80 proof, 86.8 proof, 86.8 proof 1982, 101 proof, 101 Rye, 8yo 101, RR 101, WT 12 Gold Foil, newer 12yo split, solid label 12yo.
In the front is a lonely 1855, there's a 750ml bottle on the way from Japan.

The Stampede in the photo is one I purchased empty, and I have filled it with a mix of RB, 8yo 101, 12yo 101, KS, WTAS. Should be alright!!

It has taken me a long time to acquire all of these bottles, and I owe a huge thanks to Attila for getting me multiple bottles of MDS14, Tribute 110, Kentucky Legend Barrel Proof, the 1855 that will soon be here and the Stampede that he discovered. David leaves no stone unturned!!

Also a big thanks to ThomasH for getting me the 1982 86.8 proof and that beautiful gold foil!!

I don't think I have the guts to open the 17yo!

Hey Attila and Hightower, did you guys manage to get a hold of that Stampede 55? If you have could you embellish us with a revised pic of Scott's collection? :bowdown:
