    Lets pull the claws in, what happens on another web site is none of our concern on here.

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

    Well the list is more impressive than the picture. I mean it's just a picture of a bunch if bottles, but with the context of their contents that's even more wow. It can't have been easy, or cheap, to collect all those. Well done
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

The folks with those bottles know exactly what they have and they aren't giving them up. All those posts you referenced above for all of those bottles produced: Zero. Nothing. Not a peep. Not even a 4R. So, while you extoll the generosity of members of this site (to which I agree and still come here for knowledge, which I cannot return), they aren't giving away these bunkered bottles.
    I'd have to agree with this statement... The SBr's here that have been around a while are pretty good about self-policing and knowing who the wolves are. That said, I've personally experienced incredible generosity from members here and I hope the few bad apples don't ruin that culture.

    All in all, that's an impressive sight and thanks for sharing the picture.

    Thanks for the kind words. I always enjoy seeing the pictures on this thread and I thought others might enjoy seeing my little stash.

    I like the porn thread(s) myself.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I'm torn. On one hand, they're so f'n beautiful it would be a shame not to share them. On the other, it was seeing these exceptional collections last year that sent me spiraling into obsessive whiskeyrexia nervosa accumulation.

    If it weren't for the stash threads, I wouldn't have a stash. I'll drink to that, and to the many fine collections here.

    After looking at that collection... me thinks this is a porn thread! Most impressive... a perfect 10 from the Hungarian judge!

    I'd add some thanks as well. Been drinking whiskey in one form or another for most of my adult life, really started to expand my bourbon knowledge a couple of years ago, then dove in headfirst earlier this year, which is when I started lurking around here. With your aid - in terms of knowledge, recommendations and even help in acquisition - and the support of a wife who at least tolerates my hobby, my own knowledge and my collection has grown by leaps and bounds.

    I participated in a little tasting event a couple of weeks ago, 8 to 10 of us, everyone brought a bottle. As we were talking, I realized that maybe one or two guys knew about as much as me about the subject, but no one knew more. I couldn't have said that a year ago. Again, thanks.
