    1987 SW Cabin Still(almost gone)
    Canadian Club
    Canadian Mist Black Diamond
    2009 BTAC ER 17
    Gibson's 12 year old Canadian Whiskey
    Jack Daniels
    Jack Daniels Private Selection SB
    Old Fitz BIB DSP 16
    Old Forester BIB DSP 354/414
    OWA Kahn's
    Pappy 20
    1989 Walker's Deluxe
    Willetts-Liquor World
    07 WLW

    The Canadians and Jack Daniels are for my son and friends, so I only actually have eleven bottles open at the moment. Maybe only ten by the end of the night, seeing as I'm almost done with the Cabin Still. Joe
    I cleaned up my cabinet and did an inventory over the weekend. (I seem to remember talking to someone in the Gazebo the other night about updating inventory and rearranging stuff so you can't find it. ) Anyway, the Cabin Still, Pappy 20 and Jack Daniels Private Selection SB are now history. In turn I opened a EH Taylor SB BIB, Everett's ERSB, Yellowstone and a SW Weller SR. I never counted the Treaty Oak Rum either. Cheers! Joe

    Hmmmm. I still have one of your 5 yr Willett's in my bunker Dave. I might have to open it once I finish a couple more bottles. Joe

    Re: What's Open On Your Bar?

    This thread makes me happy to see that I am not alone in having a lot of stuff opened. When I started going nuts this year with tasting every new bottle that I bought, I thought I might be committing a cardinal sin. Glad to see that isn't the case.

    Here's what I have opened:
    Sazerac 18
    WLW
    GTS
    ER17
    PHC 2010
    Pappy 20
    Pappy 15
    Lot B
    Van Winkle 10
    Jefferson's 18
    Jefferson's 17
    Weller 12
    OWA
    WSR
    Knob Creek Single Barrel
    FRSB
    1792

    So, basically every type that I own, lol. I have multiple back ups for the Van Winkle's and the PHC, thankfully. My WLW is on its last legs and FULL of barrel charred goodness.

    Re: What's Open On Your Bar?

    I think it's a general rule (with some exceptions) that bourbons improve after opening for several months. My PVW15 is just now ripening a month after opening, for instance.

    I've found that ryes do not do as well. In my limited experience, ryes might improve in the first week or two, but lose their herbal character after a couple of months, or even sooner. That's a very convenient excuse to drink ryes as fast as humanly possible
