    Of course, a house and some kids probably won't keep me out of the whiskey aisle. Might even send me there more often
    I did this with wine right around the time my girl was born.

    She's 13 now, and I just drank the last good bottle of Bordeaux last December.

    I doubt I will be buying much more of it anytime soon.

    Re: What whiskey have you bunkered the most?

    Have five WTR 101, and seven 750's and three 1.75 of OWA (based on last year's "scare").

    Given my O.C.D., I HAVE to have at least 2 of every bottle I like....that way I never open the "last" bottle of something.

    Rye whiskey makes the sun set faster.

    Ok, technically, I only have one from each year, but its 9 bottles total 1994-2002.

    I've had bottles of EWSB prior to the 1994, back when it was packaged with a nice rocks glass, but that was before I started to bunker, man I wish I still had some older year's bottlings and not just the rocks glass!
    I too am a fan, but since I just got into this hobby, I'm late to the game. I have the EWSB 96, 97, 98, 00, 01, 02.
    i also bunker BTAC; THH x 4, GTS x 4, WLW x 1, ER17 x 2, Saz18 x 1 (1 open on the bar of each). Would love to bunker Pappy but that is hard to do.

    Re: What whiskey have you bunkered the most?

    I'm not big into the whole "bunkering" thing. However, I do have one bottle stashed away of Knob Creek Single Barrel. It has some sentimental value as I helped choose the barrel. Also, I have two bottles each of Weller 12 and 2003 Evan Williams Single Barrel (both bottles from barrel #21). That's the extent of my "bunker".

    Don't feel bad. At the moment my "bunker" consists of a bottle of Willett Rye. I think I have about 20 open bottles, if you count only rye and bourbon.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Re: What whiskey have you bunkered the most?

    At the moment.... nothing. I've drank what I had down, and I only have a bottle or two on hand these days. I can't justify tying up that much money anymore. If I get a hankering for something, I just go get a bottle, drink it, then get another as the need arises.

    I would have to say (in answer to the thread's question) W. L. Weller Centennial, I think I have a couple of dozen of them.

    It's funny I have all the years from 1986 - 1995 including 4x - 1986 and 2x - 1987 and 1x the rest. I didn't really save them on purpose but ran across them over the last year. I haven't actually tried these older ones but decided to save them for gatherings in the future. Since 1996 on, I have gotten each year and drank them but not bunkered any.

    I have the most bottles of what I like best: GTS.

    Re: What whiskey have you bunkered the most?

    While I have a good stock of BTAC, CEHT Tornado is the one bottle I have the most of. Since that one isn't coming back around again and my wife loves it as well, I bought a case of it.
