My modest collection and display. The center clock belonged to my dad, it was his father's. The portrait is of my great-grandfather, a Civil War veteran. The center personalized decanter was a father's day present from my family ... my wife is first generation Polish-American, and they had the crystal decanter & glasess set made for me in the old-country.
bllygthrd, that is really nice! First class bar, I'm jealous!

Man - I'm jealous of the actual bars (not to mention many of the collections!) So this post is more of a sympathy post
This is a fairly crowded pic/stash (in the bottom of a hutch). Some of the hidden items in the bottom include 2010 George T Stagg, 2010 William Larue Weller, 2011 Thomas H Handy, 2011 Sazerac Rye 18 yr, Elijah Craig SB 18, Van Winkle 12 yr Lot B, Pappy 20 yr, Willett 4 yo Rye, Eagle Rare (10 yr), Laphroaig Cask Strength (and standard 10 yr), Ardbeg 10 yr, Crown Royal Cask 16, Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yrs (90 and 107 proof), Johnny Drum Private Stock, Southern Corn Whiskey, and 1792 Ridgemont Reserve. Not pictured is a 2007 Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon.
The Charred Oak is the latest addition (and Restaurant Man was right - FR SB is far better for $30; I have one of those, and just couldn't resist not trying the Charred Oak). I'll post a tasting on that later, but it won't be in my stash for long (and won't be replaced).
