    Re: Show Us Your Stash -- Volume 3.0 (The Subliminal Verses)

    Here's what I have open and a few loose bottles as well...not including what I have stashed in about 8 or so boxes. I'll have to pull those out for a photo shoot some other day.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Re: Show Us Your Stash -- Volume 3.0 (The Subliminal Verses)

    Oh, I have more...

    The contents of that WT101 375 are in the coke bottle. And the contents of a VOF (or what's left of the VOF) from 1969 are in the WT101 bottle. If I could upload full resolution pictures from my PC you could read the sharpie writing on all of the labels, but the only way I can attach images is with tapatalk. For the time being at least.

    Edit: any bottle under 750ml is a sample bottle and does not contain it's original product.

    Good amount of variety and samples. Looks like a nice selection for a guy with varied tastes

    Thanks...

    EWJ, the plastic seal on the Rare Breed used to be brown instead of clear like it is now.

    Re: Show Us Your Stash -- Volume 3.0 (The Subliminal Verses)

    This is quite lame, but its what happens when you scale back your operations on open bottles. Had probably 25, now what you see. When I get to toward the bottom, I switch to an amber 4 or 2 oz'r. If I get sick of something or produce a dud vatting, it goes into my 'graveyard' bottle.

    There's much more in back stock, but ill be the first to say I'm not much of a collector nor do I really have a bunker. I drink what I like and, given the unobtainumness of said likeage, then those bottles sit until I find another. I also don't feel the need to fill out my bar cause I ain't got one; its more about easy access in the house.

    I also hoard samples for some strange reason. Some are rare in the true sense of the word (not the bourbon bubble chaser nonsense sense) and some are nothing special at all. I guess my mind has me convinced that if I ever find another similar sample or bottle I'll be able to do an honest SBS, blind vertical, etc. I'm no fun at tastings or bourbon G2G's because I can usually guess what I'm drinking as well as tell everyone what's wrong with it like if the barrel rolled 6 too many times coming off the rack to be dumped.

    I know therapy is an option, but you can't prove it works!!!!
