    Of course, a house and some kids probably won't keep me out of the whiskey aisle. Might even send me there more often
    That was exactly my situation. Moved into my house and knew I had about one year or so of financial freedom before baby. Convinced my wife to let me go wild by letting her know I can bunker current purchases for decades and it will never get cheaper. Fall 2012 was an expensive season, but who will remember in Fall 2042? No one.

    Well, I plan to be dead for two years by then, but my heirs will have some of my Fall 2012 purchases still around to comfort them.

    Four Roses followed by Van Winkle and Wild Turkey...changing bourbon profiles and pending shortages have me sitting pretty on all of these for a long time.

    Good on you for being ahead of the curve. Some of us are new to the game with very thin bunkers and wishing we had gotten in sooner. However there are many on this Board who are VERY generous and it is encouraging to see the support for those like me who are late to appreciate our American Spirit.

    I'm not sure that I get your point here... What does someone helping you find a bottle of Old Fitz BIB have to do with what people have bunkered...that was the point of this thread correct?

    No point, just saying congrats on being in ahead of the new wave of "converts" like me who wish they had a bunker and are dependent upon the generosity of others to even see some of the old stuff. If that sounded jealous then it was not intended that way. Just one of the unwashed masses with my face pressed against the glass looking in and wishing I had gotten on the bandwagon earlier.
