I think many of you are trying to put this guy into your shoes - not the other way around.

We are talking 200 bottles here guys. I consider myself a collector and I couldn't see that many bottles. I just moved houses and had to pack up and move fewer cases than he's got and its a bitch.

Even if he sells 100 bottles - that leaves another 100 bottles that he can enjoy. Plus there is the hassle of storing the liquor. Plus some of the bottles have more 'collector' value than drinking value (in that there is someone willing to pay more money for an older bottle of crappy whiskey than it would cost to replace it with a PVW 10YO).

I'd go through the batch and pull out between 50-100 bottles and sell the rest - or better yet give them as gifts to your other family members.
