    How many bottles do you drink per year?

    Another tread got me to wondering .... how many bottles do members of this forum go thru a year. So .... if you are willing to fess up.....

    How many bottles do you, personally, go thru in a years time?

    Hard to tell here since I'm generally pouring from alternate bottles, not the same one nightly. However, I toss one out about once every 7-10 days, so I guess we'll go with that. That likely works out to somewhere between 40-60 bottles a year.

    What Tim said is close to what I was thinking. Have dozens open and about one empty per week tossed, more on a week I'm entertaining, less during a busy work week, so 50-60 a year.

    I need to catch up with you guys.
    I toss an empty about every three weeks or a little less time than that.
    So that works out to about 18 per year.

    5-6 bourbons empty per year--Pappy 20 and Stagg seem to go fastest.
    plus 5-6 more of single malt scotch, gin and tequila. I drink a fair number of margaritas and martinis, especially during the summer.

    I keep trying to have mini whiskyfests to try to get more guys interested and move through my bottles. Guess I'll have to work harder at that.

    25.4 oz in a standard bottle...365.25 days in a year...9 months a year at 30 degrees north 3 months at 38 degrees north...add in daylight savings time... hold on, need another sheet of paper...phases of the moon...magnetic declination of Molvania...current student loan debt...damn, broke the point on my pencil...number of characters left out of the movie version of the Lord of the Rings...okay...square root of that...divided by pi over 4...times the sum of the DSPs in operation

    One a month

    Plus one extra on leap year (to drown my sorrows on election day)
    Add one for each solstice
    Ohh, one for the equinoxes
    And one for when the Barturtle visits

    18

    I like that a lot!

    I think that when I am on my normal consumption level, I tend to toss one every week or so. I will go with 50 bottles a year. Of course, I bunker them a lot faster than I drink them. I think I did a calculation one time and determined I will have over 3000 bottles when I die!!

    Current rate is about one bottle every three weeks. Lately I've been drinking' faster than I've been buying.
