    What's Open On Your Bar?

    We haven't done one of these in a while so let's see what's out there.

    I usually have three to six open bottles.
    That's not a lot compared to a lot of people.
    But now I have 14 open bottles which is a lot for me.
    I opened special bottles starting Thanksgiving and now through the Christmas Holidays.
    These should keep me warm and comfy this Winter, or most of it.

    Easiest Question I've ever had to answer.

    I just unpacked my sideboard and opened my first bottle in the new house.

    Its and ETL "Barrel of the Year"

    Perfect!!!

    Hey Ed, I have to say, your avatar is top notch! Is it the Christmas globe?

    Looks like what I wanted to do with my Christmas lights when I started that project.

    and I'm planning to open a bottle of Knob Creek tonight after work.

    Nothing exciting open right now....I'm waiting until I get REALLY bored to delve into the fun stuff in my stash.

    JB Distiller's Select
    Dickel Barrel Select
    Rowan's Creek
    Maker's Mark (bottle I dipped at the giftshop under the supervision of a 20-something flirtacious tour guide)
