    Re: Collecting

    The only bourbon I truely collect are the Buffalo Trace Experimentals. I've bought a second bottle of some releases that I actually wanted to try. That said, I accumulate many whiskies.

    screw tops, or corks only?

    you guys don't appreciate how weird scotch drinkers are. Maybe now you'll get it.

    I can't imagine having all this lovely bourbon and NOT being compelled to drink it. Why collect consumables you have no intention of consuming? Why not collect Furby's or stamps?

    Isn't it just assumed that everyone collects Furbys?

    Just because I am not compelled to drink it now, don't think that it will not be drunk. Patience is a virtue and all good things come to those that wait. And Max....don't be hatin'.

    Re: Collecting

    As a collector I try to keep the ones I really enjoy but try as many different gems as I can find. As such, I love strange and timely finds. I wandered into a small and random liquor store north of Chicago and found 4 bottles of Evan Williams Single Barrel 1990 vintage. I bought one out of pure nostalgia and found it to be quite enjoyable. Now the question is, do I go back to the store and buy the remaining 3? More than happy to share the wealth as well if anyone is interested in the location.
