Version 2 was started 5 years ago and was getting really long so I figured it was time to close it and start fresh.

Now that I am finally getting my inventory done and in the process organizing it I decided I'd post some pictures of my stash.

This first picture is about as far as I have got in the organization; The Van Winkles both Ryes and Bourbons. Not nearly as impressive as many folks here, but I'm trying. And shoot, I'm not sure I want more whiskey around than I can drink by 12/21/2012 anyway! :searching:

... The Wellers, Turkeys and all others will be coming in the next few days.....

Thanks guys, I'll do a run down of what they all are (40 total) in the next day or two, but can say - and it may be a surprise to many - the most treasured are the ORVW Old Time Ryes on the far right! I have 5 of what I believe was the first run and then 1 when the neck label was changed to the black. I have been pretty consistent since first tasting it in believing that it is the best whiskey I've ever tasted.

I have had about 3 bottles of gold neck and one black neck. Especially the gold is very good Christian. My local bourbon club BBB got one gold bunkered and we will have it at a tasting event in April.

Man this is tiring work. Here is the Weller Bunker.

The two Boxes are 6 bottle cases full of Weller Centennial Single Barrel. The new shaped Weller 12s are SW from Everett's, the old shaped are SW the folks here picked out a few years ago. All the Antique, Special Reserves and Centennials (not in boxes) are Louisville bottlings. The row of William Larues are all 2006 129.9'; 4 in all and there is one lone 2007 117.9' bottle floating up to the right of them. The Weller 19 sitting up to the right is the lone 2000 version and the 5 on the left are all 2001s. Since I have 5 of those I'd love to trade one for a 2002 if anyone on here has an extra '02.

VOL,

Are all the Weller 12's in new bottles containing SW juice? Randy mentioned something about this at the Gazebo but I never asked him to clarify.

Also, the Centennial in boxes is single barrel? The regular Centennial was not single barrel was it?

You know... since the work is so tiring, I'd be happy to take some off your hands, so you can retire the wide-angle lens. ;-)

I think the rest of us use the word "bunker" euphamistically, but something tells me you actually have some 10 foot concrete walls arounds this stuff.

Very, very nice indeed!

Ok, here is my meager little collection by SB standards. There are a few I'm proud of, like the 1979 Old Wellers I paid $15.99 each for in the OKC. I left out a few odds and ends like 3 Old Forester Repeal sets and the Jack Daniel's Repeal set. Also the case of Tom Moore BIB and Mellow Corn BIB. Anyway, Enjoy!

Oh and the last picture is just of my damn wiener kids!:grin:

As I was viewing your stash I was thinking "I know he has some Yellowstone, he's just hiding them...." but then you corrected your mistake. That last pic is my favorite....all really terrific bourbons.

Hey Greg, notice the one lone Old Fitz BIB in that picture. It is one of the two you sent me and is still the only Old Fitz I've got in my collection. I'm saving it for a super special occasion. Great stuff!

I also added 2 more vintage birds to the collection today. 2 - 99 batch Rare Breeds. Love it!

10-24-2009, 21:09
Yeah Don, I agree with Christian. Nothing meager about your collection at all. You have some really good stuff there. The things that I'm impressed with the most, are all the Wellers you have, and the old tax stamped bottles of Yellowstone. I was lucky enough to get a an old bottle of Yellowstone once. Man it was good. Brought back some fond memories too. :rolleyes: Great collection Don. You should be proud. Joe

My OCD is causing this organizing to take too long so I just said heck with it and put the Turkeys in a pile and snapped a picture. I am missing a few and am quite frankly tiring of chasing the birds. I think I overbought American Spirit, but it is such a damn good looking package I couldn't help myself when I saw them; and a pretty tasty bourbon too!

You should also be able to find somewhere locally that sells Glencairn glasses -- ask your Chicago peeps to point you in the right direction. I would imagine Binny's would have 'em but I don't know -- I picked up 2 at Julio's last weekend for $5 apiece. I like the Glencairns for "tasting" -- especially in small amounts and snifters for big pours -- rocks glasses for big flavor profile or less expensive bourbons (OGD114, WT101, etc.).

Well, I had some time over the long Thanksgiving weekend to take an inventory of my stash, and update my spread sheet. Since I had the time, I also decided to do some cleaning, rearranging, and take some new pics. Here's my stash for now.

#1. Glasses, shot glasses, and flasks
#2. Decanters. The only one that still has bourbon is the JB Bowling Pin
#3. Van Winkles
#4. BTAC
#5. A flock of Turkeys
#6. My Wellers
#7. A flight of Eagles
#8. Four Roses
#9. Old Forester and Old Fitz
#10. Miscellaneous 1
#11. Ryes
#12. Miscellaneous 2
#13. Maker's Mark
#14. Some dusties
#15. Miscellaneous 3
#16. Canadians
#17. My cabinet. This was before I added some recently acquired bottles and rearranged everything.

This is my stash with the exception of about a half a dozen oddball bottles that I have tucked away in my basement. I dunno, I think I may have to make some room for some more Weller, and ERSB. :rolleyes: Joe

What is RX Bourbon? And what are those different Blanton's? I thought there was only one version of Blanton's?

B1bomber
12-16-2009, 09:06
Those Blantons represent one of the great injustices of the world... export-only versions that are available in Europe and also Japan, I think. I landed a Gold version a while back, but haven't yet acquired the Silver, Special Reserve, or Straight-From-Barrel varieties. Sigh.

Dutchie66
12-16-2009, 14:59
Rx was available until 8 years ago.I have bought another one, unopened, 2 weeks ago. Blanton's do have several varieties that are only available in europe but guys, my list of bottles wanted (and not available overhere) is a bit longer than your list of wanted Blanton's. I'm working on it. Where there is a will there is a way.

ggilbertva
12-17-2009, 05:34
I'm not sure but I think Blantons has (had) 10 different label variations. I've had the silver, gold and SFTB and in my opinion, better than original. I know it's the same product but the higher proof makes it a better pour. Here's the list of various proofs that have been released over the years:

Blanton’s original
Black 90 proof
Silver 98 proof
Cask varies in proof
Gold 103 proof
Burgundy 1998 93 proof
Private stock bottle 182 barrel 126, 93 proof
Single barrel 93 proof
Green 80 proof
Super gold 103 proof

John Hansell (of Malt Advocate) just posted this on his blog (http://blog.maltadvocate.com/2010/01/12/how-many-whiskies-i-have-and-why/) in a posting titled "How many whiskies I have. And why.":

For those of you who are only interested in the numbers and don’t care about the “why” part, here they are:
Single malt scotch: 834
Straight whiskey (bourbon, rye, wheat): 286
Irish whiskey: 99
Blended scotch, blended malts, grain whisky: 46
Canadian whisky: 33
Japanese whisky: 15
Miscellaneous artisan (e.g. micro) distillery whisky: 13

If my math is correct, that’s 1,326 bottles. 466 of these bottles are open.

Way to go, John! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

You forgot something

For the whiskies I don’t need–or no longer need–professionally, I use them at the whisky tastings I host. (Like the one I have in Philly the first week of March.) I also donate bottles to many charity events. And, I promise you that all of my local friends never go thirsty for whisky. http://www.surfert.nl/index.php5?q=aHR0cDovL2Jsb2cubWFsdGFkdm9jYXRlLmNvb S93cC1pbmNsdWRlcy9pbWFnZXMvc21pbGllcy9pY29uX3NtaWx lLmdpZg%3D%3D
Most of the bottles were thrown in his lap so i do not see a big accomplishment here. What he does with them deserves him more credit.

Thanks guys, I'll do a run down of what they all are (40 total) in the next day or two, but can say - and it may be a surprise to many - the most treasured are the ORVW Old Time Ryes on the far right! I have 5 of what I believe was the first run and then 1 when the neck label was changed to the black. I have been pretty consistent since first tasting it in believing that it is the best whiskey I've ever tasted.

The second bottle our whiskey club got for sharing was ORVW Old Time Rye (gold top, No. 77). (I gotta say, nothing helped our club recruitment effort more than sharing little tastes from this bottle.) But the last 30 ml or so sat in the bottle in my office for well over a year (or 2?). I used to pop it open once in a while to cop a nose, or let someone else do so for the memory. Then I mostly just forgot about it. I was New Year's cleaning today and decided to pitch all the empties in my office. I brought them home to pitch (discretion is never a bad idea), and saw that there was enough in that bottle for a descent pour. Poured it (still so nice even after all that airring-time, and found this thread while I was sipping. I thought the other sweet poisons I keep under my sink might be a good setting so ...

here y'all go, a pic of the last pour from ORVWOTR bottle No. 77.

Here's to all of its fans.

The second bottle our whiskey club got for sharing was ORVW Old Time Rye (gold top, No. 77). (I gotta say, nothing helped our club recruitment effort more than sharing little tastes from this bottle.) But the last 30 ml or so sat in the bottle in my office for well over a year (or 2?). I used to pop it open once in a while to cop a nose, or let someone else do so for the memory. Then I mostly just forgot about it. I was New Year's cleaning today and decided to pitch all the empties in my office. I brought them home to pitch (discretion is never a bad idea), and saw that there was enough in that bottle for a descent pour. Poured it (still so nice even after all that airring-time, and found this thread while I was sipping. I thought the other sweet poisons I keep under my sink might be a good setting so ...

here y'all go, a pic of the last pour from ORVWOTR bottle No. 77.

Here's to all of its fans.
:toast:

I have had about 3 bottles of that brand over time. I did like it quit a lot. We are actually having one at our next tasting event in our local bourbon club. It will be interesting to see if I still like it and how it will stand up against a bunch of other ryes. Nice to heart that you have a whiskey club. Is that a common thing in Japan?

Rx was available until 8 years ago.I have bought another one, unopened, 2 weeks ago. Blanton's do have several varieties that are only available in europe but guys, my list of bottles wanted (and not available overhere) is a bit longer than your list of wanted Blanton's. I'm working on it. Where there is a will there is a way.


Some are also available to our friends in the great white north.

You forgot something

Most of the bottles were thrown in his lap so i do not see a big accomplishment here. What he does with them deserves him more credit.

Actually, most were not thrown into my lap. I paid for the majority of them--many years ago when they cost a lot less. But still, I don't see it as an accomplishment. Like you said, it's not what you have, but rather what you do with it that matters most.

Weird, i assumed that a reviewer receives those bottles for free. A review is free advertising. So the distillery or bottler benefits from what you write, right? Or not, if you think the whiskey is crap. I know DJ's get most of their records for free.

Our club is really just made up of the folks I work with who like whisk(e)y. It started out like a foreign buyer's club (no Japanese have yet joined- too many shochu drinkers). It's really informal. We just put the orders together to save on shipping and add an extra $8 or so each to buy a bottle for sharing. I guess we're up to 12 regular members now.

Well I got the new "bunker" up, so I figured it's time to post a picture. It's about 18" deep, easily holds 5 BTACs deep, so the bottom two chambers are pretty dang full... but it leaves a nice area for the visible area to hold paraphernalia and the "currently drinking" bottles.

I managed to snag a bottle of BT cream liqueur for my wife for our last anniversary (among other things). She really, really enjoyed it. I didn't have it many times but it was awesome in coffee, and it was very good just neat. The bourbon really came through and I found it much more enjoyable than irish cream liqueur.

If it was something that I could pick up at my local liquor store, it would have a permanent place in my fridge.

I can't tell from the picture, but the charter BIB 7 year could actually be a Louisville?

Beakerboy
04-22-2010, 04:24
I think the Old Charter is from Louisville. I wanted a BIB bourbon in my collection and this is the one I grabbed.

The bourbon cream is great! My wife loves the smell of bourbon, but not so much the taste . The cream is a good balance, more like a bourbon ball than a tumbler of whiskey. The bottle tag has a recipe for a bourbon cream milkshake that we've made a few times; I think it's cream liqueur, chocolate syrup, ice cream, and milk.

I bought it not long ago. Still on the shelf from 1976, unopened. I opened it and got it out of the decanter right away, and I have about 600ml left. It is most definitely SW juice, and it's really good. It has a lot in common with the current PVW20 I think.

Just under 50 bucks in tax-free Delaware. Supposedly there are a lot more where that came from, but I haven't been able to get the store owner to show me his "warehouse". In the store there are probably 4000-5000 decanters of all different bourbons, but only 1 ORVW that I noticed.

There are lots of Beam and Wild Turkey decanters. Anything special I should keep my eye out for?

gothbat
05-08-2010, 22:03
That's one thing I found odd and very enjoyable about the old OF/ORVW decanters, the whiskey in the ones I've had has only been like 6 or 7 years old but the taste and mouth feel is closer to PVW20 than any other SW expressions I've had, it doesn't really have the wood but pretty much everything else is there. They say whiskey in porcelain is no good because it will get tainted so I guess we could just be really lucky considering the age of these decanters. I wonder if I've just jinxed whatever OF/VW decanter I open next...

I'm looking for the post from the member with the Maker's Mark
collection. I thought it was in this thread (or the "What do you
have the most of?") but I'll be damned if I can find it. I believe
it was fairly recent (maybe the last 6 months) and included 5 -6
photos or maybe a panoramic video clip. Hell, maybe it was even
on BE (haven't checked there yet.)

If any Maker's fans wanna point me in the right direction, I'd
appreciate it.

John,

I'm guessing you're talking about Dale's collection (NeoTexan). can't find the exact thread, but maybe look under his posts and it will come up. I would say it was one of the earlier "show us your stash" threads

Yes, It's Buck. Not to bad but I won't get another. I got the barrel when I saw it in a small liquor store. Offered the gut $75 and after some haggling we settled on $100. He said it was there when he bought the store. Felt like it was a pretty good deal.

I finally organized my stash in a more secure fashion than cardboard boxes on the basement floor.

The shelves needed some reinforcement to be able to hold the weight of the bottles. It two holes and two extra bolts per shelf did the trick.

Great stash. I noticed the wine gas preserve. Do you use those for Whiskey, and if so, do you like the results? Just curious.

Sure do. I for whatever reason really seem to pick up on oxidation. Don't get me wrong there are ones that I let breathe longer before I gas. Most wheaters for example.

But I wanted to be able to have as many opened as I wanted without ever having to worry about the profiles changing too drastically. It's relatively cheap (bought a case of 12).

I've been using this method for several years and the results have been great. Since using it I have never had an off bottle.

I also take it a step further and often bottle the last 4 oz into a little 4 oz glass bottle, and stick a label on it. This has only slightly helped the nagging feeling to quickly replace a finished bottle. :lol: But also good for:
- going back to for comparison
- having little treats ready to go if the need should arise
- giving to friends to sample

They sell that style shelf at most of the big home renovation places. I know for a fact that Lowes has a large and small version in black and chrome. I had to purchase 8-10 of them for our storage room at work. Bed Bath and Beyond also carries them, but only in chrome and I think they only have 1 size.

flintlock
03-24-2011, 07:39

Lowe's. I don't really like them as the individual shelf wires are very flexible an will allow the bottles to rock back and forth. Some sort of solid shelf overlay will be in order. But other than that, they're cool for $50. I think they will hold probably 120 - 130 bottles. I think I have about 50 or so there - the number keeps changing.

I appreciate the concern, but I'll probably be okay. When I say, "wildly out of control", that really means about 1/100th of the average SB member's collection. I have about 50 bottles tops. Have just outgrown the space I usually keep them in.

I also live in a second story condo, so no one will really be able to see it, except me and the Wife.

I have exactly 0 VWFRR in my posesion, despite significant attempts to find it, but as it currently sells in LA for at least $100, if not $120/bottle, it is fairly certain that I will not be able to get any in the near future...this picture makes me sad......cuz I can never know such joy.

You've purchased some great bottles in the past couple years! I'm jealous of those Centennials!

So we are in the process of looking for a new home and I have to box up the bunker, to make the move a little bit easier. All of you, in some way can relate to the enjoyment you get collecting bourbon or going into that store and finding a dusty! I to have enjoyed this, but I can tell you when we find the right house, the moving of the bunker will not be as fun! :skep:

PS. No I don't need any help with storage or place to hold my bottles while I more (but thanks in advance for the offers).

Cheers,

Those bottles look like they are in an attack formation. I volunteer to fight the spirited menace!

I'm kind of afraid to ask, but here goes anyway: are those Centennial cases above the bottles empty or full?

I was pondering the same thought.

Tony, you need a vault not a bunker.

Good luck house hunting.

The boxes are just up there for the picture. I emptied the boxes for the photo, as I thought it looked better out.

@ Bob, any time your in town, we can open whatever it is you want.

I didn't feel like taking all these off the shelves or getting all the cases out of the crawlspace so I just took a couple pictures in their natural state. ;)

@hectic:

I found a couple of dusties the other day and I was going to post in the dusty thread but I saw you had similar bottles!

I found 2 bottles of the Old Taylor BIB in Quart size and an Old Charter Private Reserve.

I might have paid too much on the OCPR as it was about $45 but the OTBIB were $20. What are your thoughts on these bottles?

Very nice bunker pic!
