Seven deep. EC12 (couldn't resist @ $20ea [dry well now, tho]) and TPS selected FR1B. May go that far on $34 Blanton's (for the cork collection), too. $16 WT101 is calling me now. . . I guess I only dig deep for value.
FR SB and Willett Family Reserve. You never know what you're going to get (Hill, Trace, Beam, Barton, etc.) with the Willetts. It's fun to try and figure out where the juice is from (its almost always good, too).
I've also started to bunker some of the better cheaper stuff (Weller, VOB) as a hedge against rising prices.
Good question. For me, the answer is probably the 2002 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. Bottled at 13 years old, it is one of my two or three all time favorites.
Another significant presence in my little bunker is Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit. But I would really need to sort through things to see what all is in there. My "bunker" is not really a place, I just have various things sitting around in various places.

I don't bunker much modern stuff except maybe a half-dozen bottles of Pappy 15 & 20. I pick up any WT stuff from the 90s when I find it. But I do pick up most of the 80s and 70s stuff I find because I know I may not find it again.
I don't think I really bunker, I open and drink/share what I buy, when I get to it. I currently only have one "duplicate" bottle. It's a 2012 BTAC WLW. I've got a few unopened bottles, but they aren't duplciates and will be opened soon-ish I just haven't gotten to them yet. I usually only buy multiple bottles at a time on limited release stuff (BTAC) or if it is somethign i buy regularly and is on sale or hard for me to find like Weller 12.
Not sure if this would be considered a bunker or not but here is a list of what I currently have waiting to be opened:
JPS 18 L&K Single Barrel Selection
Elmer T Lee L&K Single Barrel Selection.
Four Roses Barrel Strength OESO L&K single barrel selection.
Bernheim L&K Single Barrel Selection.
Four Roses Small batch gift set with the bottle signed by Jim Rutledge
Larceny 1.75 (still working on the 750)
2012 BTAC WLW
i'm mildly envious of your guys' bunkers. it's just too bad my wallet won't allow me to bunker as much as i'd like to.

Of course, a house and some kids probably won't keep me out of the whiskey aisle. Might even send me there more often
