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

    26 open currently,4 ryes,18 bourbons and 4 single malts,I try to keep a good variance in what I have open.I have begun to dwindle down my number of opens,which not long ago was near 40. I am going to try to hold right around 20 from here on out,just much easier to manage and hopefully will keep me a little more focused on certain bottles and drastically cut down their open time.

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

    Average is around 12-15. Highest at one time was 28, which I dwindled down to 4 at one point.

    Most of the time, I have 12 or less open. Once in a great while there me be a couple more, but 12 or under is where I try to maintain.

    I'm the same way. But it's more like 25 at the moment.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

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

    I usually have 3-5 going at a time so I can focus in on a bottle and really give it a "workout." I like to try most of my bourbons neat (unless they are barrel proofers), splash of water, on the rocks, in a manhattan, and in an old fashioned and make notes to try and get a good idea what pour is good for certain purposes. I have found my sweet spot to be with many low to middle shelfers. Thanks to this board I recently gave OGD BIB a good workout and after my "bourbon pentathalon" I was entirely impressed.

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

    I've got about 60 bottles of nice whiskey open at the moment. About 60% is American whiskey, and 40% single malt scotch. I can never resist opening stuff. I could probably last two years just finishing off what I have open right now.

    Not too many, 5 bourbons, 1 corn, 3 single malts, 3 Irish, 1 blended scotch, 1 blended Canadian. Covers the bases.
