    Re: Open Bottle Problem

    Not sure how many, but if I had to guess, maybe 60 to 70 open?

    I use wine preserver, and once it starts to get about 3/4 empty I focus on finishing it. Last 4 oz usually end up in a 4 oz glass bottle that I smack a label on.

    Bourbon always did make me feel like a Giant.

    Re: Open Bottle Problem

    I have 19 open bottles including Scotch and Irish. The longest open bottle is a Lagavulin 16 that has been open for almost a year. I don't worry about it because most open bottles don't last more than a few months after opening.

    Re: Open Bottle Problem

    I have about 12 open and I want to limit it to that so I actually learn the whiskies. I want to know them intimately, and I don't think I could do that if I had 30 or 40 open bottles.
    Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe...

    I just keep consumption ahead of acquisition.

    Re: Open Bottle Problem

    I'm not sure about knowing the whisk(e)y intimately. I know the ones I like, well enough. I drink whisk(e)y because I like it. Sometimes, I think there is too much emphasis on "getting to know" a whisk(e)y rather than just enjoying it for what it is.

    I'm not a "fancy" whisk(e)y drinker. I can't give numerous descriptions full of wing dings and fangle f**ks about what I think I smell and taste. I just know I like it... so, I drink it.

    This post was more descriptive and creative than most of the tasting notes I read.
