I think I have the elusive whiskeyrexia nervosa.
over 30 unopened bottles and all I can think about is acquiring more.
everything I buy, I plan to drink, but it's becoming ridiculous. .
time for new whiskeyrexia thread?
Not ridiculous, oh no, just making proper provision for the future.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
I hear you, Dannabis. My purchasing is far outstripping my consumption right now. I need to reign it in. I keep using the logic "I'll drink it eventually" but eventually is now years in the future. I know that sounds familiar to many, if not most, on this site.
I can relate. Several single bottles of Stagg, Handy, PVW that I have left unopened and placed deep in the bunker until I can acquire some more this year for comparison testing. Well at least that's what I've convinced myself of.
So, I thought I needed to replenish my 4RSmB - down to three bottles. When putting the new one in the trunk for the ride home, I found a bag with a 4RSmB AND a HMcK10yr. After reading the new posts here, I don't feel so bad. Also, I can now open one of the 4Rs.
Excellent trunk find Harry!
I try to convince myself that I shouldn't get so excited about bourbon since it's basicly just charred-oak-aged corn/grain distillate.
But yet my taste buds are not deterred by this rationalization. Some how the dollars just slip out of the wallet whenever I pass a liquor store with some whiskey selection..
