    What's in your bunker?

    Related to the question in another thread as to what bottles you currently have open, I pose the following question.

    What bottles do you currently have in your bunker that are un-opened?

    I just checked and here's what I have in my small collection:

    GTS Fall '05 (second release)
    THH Saz
    VW Lot B (x2)
    OGD BIB
    Bernheim
    Four Roses Single Barrel
    Four Roses Small Batch
    Old Charter Proprieters Reserve
    WT Tribute
    EW SB '96
    Crown Royal
    Dalmore 21

    Well, if you put all of Tim's stuff on a dart board, I would have everything but the bullseye and the triples.

    Jeremy, Timothy, Mark -- remember, this is post-sale. A few months ago, the list would have been at least twice that long. Still, I know of a number of members here who can put it to shame.

    The fact that it's post sale makes it even more impressive

    Re: What's in your bunker?

    As I started off collecting bottles for 'fun' - (yeah it's a great hobby!), I don't know if I would call it a bunker or more of a collection. Most are on display.

    The Jack bottles are just collectables, different proofs etc, but after being on this forum I want to drink most of those turkey bottles, thanks guys and girls! If any of you come to Australia, you are more than welcome to visit!

    There's also 20 that I'm ordering from Binnys, so the list will grow, also thanks to the kind folks on here
