    A sign you've gone overboard...

    When you see "Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Glaze" on a menu, and your first instinct is to wonder why it didn't say "Straight" or give an age statement and question it's quality. Turns out it was pretty good.

    Or how about wondering what label bourbon they used. What are they trying to hide here?

    When you do the math and realize you have about a 6 year supply of whiskey, but are still rationalizing why you have to buy more bottles of something you already have (insert ECBP here). "But dear . . . you don't understand!"

    When going on a buying freeze means you stay away from the liquor store for a few days, at least.

    When considering the storage of your whiskey collection most options don't pass muster on account of the weight limits per shelf.

    When you start designing the label for the barrel you know you will eventually buy.

    On that note how about when you consider making your own barrel of bourbon.
