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

    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!

    ... 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.

    That's one pretty picture. I'm loving the various age statements on those bottles....nice!

    Imagine if you got conked on the head and when you came to you found yourself on a desert island with all those Van Winkles in a box. Would you think you were in heaven? I know I would!

    Christian,
