My collection of open bottles has been seeming cluttered lately. Some are my standard pours that run from bottom to top(ish) shelf, some I plan to buy again in the future in bulk and keep bunkered for special occasions or for the bourbonocalypse, but many just aren't for me.
I've felt the sudden need to finish most of these open bottles and start over. I just feel like if I keep buying the stuff that will get used regularly, I'll never finish the "little nasties" and they'll just keep hanging around. I don't really have many friends or family that enjoy whiskies and I'm not a big mixer (though I've found that ginger ale and a few dashes of orange bitters fixes almost anything). I'm also not big on waste.
Organized space is at a premium at home (3 young kids and a packrat Wife). I tend to buy 1-2 bottles a week for opening and/or bunkering, but I feel the need to stop buying whiskey for a bit and "power through" the lesser of the open bottles until they're gone to free up some space. Does anyone else ever get this feeling?
