    "How long would your stash last?" part two

    If you decided not to purchase any more bourbon and consumed what you have now at a normal pace, how long would it last you?

    For me I figured it this way:

    136 bottles
    25.4 ounces in a bottle
    assumed 2 ounces a night 5 nights 52 weeks of the year (this is an average not including external consumption - bars, etc)


    I have enough bourbon if I just drink it by myself for over 6.5 years.

    Thought this was a lot until I read the original "How long would your stash last?"..... now I need more

    Well once I cut off all of my friends, and if I continue to drink at my fairly moderate current rate...about 15 years

    30 bottles, 25 oz each, 3.5 avg oz's per night, 7 nights per week - then I would have 214 days worth or about 7 months and some.... wow, just thinking about this scares me... I'm feeling vulnerable... need to get more bourbon!

    At least 5 years. I don't drink large amounts at one time.

    I plan to retire in 20 years and could probably last until then at my current rate of consumption. I buy dusties when I see them as well as stock up during sales. Thats why my supply is what it is!

    Figuring the same way as SpunCookie, it would last about 24 years. I better start drinkin.

    Rough figure would be approx. 12 years, but that assumes I stop sharing my bourbon and become a lonesome drinker. But this is a silly question anyway....how in the world could I stop buying bourbon....

    I'll see if I can quote you on that Wednesday night!


    Now, back on topic....I'm guessing I could wind this here bourbon out for maybe 15 years, at the end of which I would donate my liver to the Getz !

    Re: "How long would your stash last?" part two

    By Spuns math again, I would have 2 yrs worth. Problem is...

    I drink more than 2 oz's a night, and I typically drink more than 5 nights a week.

    realistic figure is closer to 1 year.

    Off to the store I go. Thanks to Spun for calling out my bourbon shortage.
    Cheers,

    Scott
