Hey, folks. A question for everyone, but I'm mainly interested in the response of the married guys/gals. How many bottles do you typically keep on hand? I'm about to head down the long road to ruin myself, so I'm curious as to what you all have convinced your significant others to let you keep around. At my current place I tend to keep a lower-end bottle (usually OWA or WT101), a mid-ranger (Rare Breed, OFBB, or Woodford) and a higher-end (right now it's EHT Tornado Survivor, but I've also kept Kentucky Spirit, "Michter's" 10 and others at various points). I like this approach because it allows me to have a great bourbon from time to time but I can usually keep around a mid-range bottle for regular pours and a lower-end for when I'm smoking some sticks (I prefer not to bother drinking a mid- or high-end bourbon when I can hardly taste anything other than the cigar). Just curious, since it seems some of you keep a fair amount of bottles around.
Also, I enjoy gin cocktails (martinis and Aviations) and some higher-end islay Scotches. So keep that in mind, since we have pretty limited cabinet space.
