    Re: How many bottles do you have open at any one time?

    17 bottles of whiskey, about 6 are SM Scotch. Always have an older bottle of rye open and I have about 12 unopened bottles for every one that is open.

    104 bourbons, all open? That sure caused a double take till I saw your link. I'm assuming you mean your bar has this number open at present?

    Oh and for me its 3. I try to only have 3 open. It forces me to get rid of the bad choices eventually.

    Re: How many bottles do you have open at any one time?

    I keep only around four or five open. This usually includes a wheated bourbon, a high rye bourbon, and a rye whiskey. Of course if I find something interesting that I've been waiting to try, that gets opened as soon as I get home.

    Re: How many bottles do you have open at any one time?

    I have 125 bottles in my "Bourbon Room". Most are bourbons, with a couple scotches and of course Ryes, and other whiskeys. I of course do not open dupes so at this time I have 115 opened.
    That way when friends come over they can try anything I have without feeling bad that it has not already been opened.

    8 bourbon, 1 rye, 1 Irish, and 2 scotch; several of these are ready for the recycle bin.

    The main reason I have so many open is that I like to do comparison tastings at night...ie. different WTs, or FRs, or wheaters, etc. AND my compulsive need to taste something as soon as I get it.

    Re: How many bottles do you have open at any one time?

    Almost everything that I don't have a dup of (so 40ish?) Only a couple exceptions of ones I haven't opened because they were just recently acquired (and my head was stuffy - I feel like I'm wasting the good stuff if I can't really taste it that well, and will focus on targeting either low-fills or something I'm just not as excited about). No rules other than avoiding opening dups (unless vintage makes a difference - ie I might have two Staggs open to compare one year to another).
