    Burgled Bourbon?

    So today I was robbed. Bourbon was burgled. Not just any however. This was an opportunistic robbery by low lives who wouldn't have known what was in front of them. Considering 5 bottlings of Parker's heritage, ah hirsch and weller were on the same shelf they just grabbed what they could. Including 5k worth of electronics, jewellery and cash. So what was stolen?
    An 06 gts, pappy 15, pappy 20 and a pappy 23. All bottles I hadn't opened or tried ever before. All bottles which are impossible to find here in Australia. So I guess it's goodbye to chances of me tasting pappy forever. What a shit day. So has anyone ever had their bourbon burgled?

    That definitely sucks - sorry to hear that. I've not had any bourbon stolen (thankfully never had our house broken into). Hope no one was injured

    Nope, but thought the likelihood was great enough to covert an old gun safe into a bourbon cabinet a couple months back. Built shelves and felted the entire inside.

    Great for keeping kids out too.

    Villains! Hate that for you. We were robbed a few years ago, but that's the one thing that was untouched. Insurance covered what was taken, so no big in the end.

    That really sucks. I know it's a long shot, but maybe they'll find the people responsible, and you'll get at least some of your stuff back. Hang in there Dale.

    Sorry to hear about your break-in. That really sucks ass.

    A former member had his home broken into and the kids who did it had a helluva party in his basement bar. I don't recall if the culprits were ever caught.

    I keep the bulk of my stash under lock and key in the unlikely event that I suffer the same.

    I hate to tell you this but the person who did this has been in your house before. They knew what you had and where it was. Trust me on this. You were robbed by someone you consider a friend.

    This is horrible. Sorry to hear this. I hope you can find other Pappy.

    I'm rarely concerned with theft because I live in a building where you have to get through 3 entrances with 3 different keys to get into my place but I'm always worried about the next big earthquake here in California. I have everything in 12 bottle wine shippers because of my paranoia and I don't want people to know what I have either. The thing is, is that a thief could easily leave with them because they are packed and ready to go.
