    I started this New Year on a mission to consolidate and went about four weeks (seemed like an eternity) without opening any new bottles. That got me down to the low 20's but I'm back up to 30 on the 750ml and above sizes. This is pretty much my comfort zone and now that my son is an adult, some of those forever 1/4 full bottles are also being appreciated. Current bottom shelfers (or less than $12) include VOB BIB, HH BIB, and JW Dant BIB. I'm not including the recent find of a DSP 16 1985 Old Fitz, with a $10.99 sticker, box included, as bottom shelf.

    Hey Joe, isn't it amazing how we still end up drinking all of it, and not complaining a bit! Apparently any bourbon is OK after having a few cold ones. By the way, we all hope you have a lot of "stuff" you don't like.

    I believe free whiskey almost alway helps as well.
