    What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting?

    Here's your opportunity to show off (modestly of course-no big heads!!) your collections. Don't be afraid to list even the most modest collection and remember everything/anything goes here, so if you have whisky(Bourbon,Scotch,Irish, etc...) take a photo and post it here.
    Here is my Scotch for collecting....(I will drink a couple of these bottles-not the top ones though!!

    Re: What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting

    No photoshop, just paint to stitch the 3 pics together. This is 100 bottles and I'm up to 130 now.


    The only thing I collect are the Balvenie Vintage casks and I have them all except the 1952 (about $9K) and the 1964 which I'll get as soon as I find one.

    I have an Isley Cask and was just looking for another. I have contacts in the UK just 20 km from Balvenie if my dealer can't come up with a RumWood sans VAT. While I know you have it in stock going from OZ to the east coast of the US isn't my first choice.

    Are one of those two white label Cardhu's the old 70 proof version? I have an open one and it really needs at least the extra 10 or 16 proof of the newer versions. I've heard the new release will be at 86 proof. One can always hope.

    Hey I noticed some Black Bottle back there, is it good enough to search out? I've heard it come into the states but have yet to manage to run across a bottle.

    Re: What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting

    That is a UK version of Black Bottle 10 and if you are an Islay fan it is one of the big three vatted malts to get. The others are Peat Monster and Big Smoke. While you can't get Big Smoke in the states, or if you can I can't find anything on it, the other two are fairly easy to find in the US. So to answer your question, yes I think it is worth it.
