    Collectors: How many "unopened" bottles do you have?

    To better define it; how many different unopened bottles do you have?

    I am now up to 69 with the hopes to top the 70 mark in the next week or two.

    I know I will catch the wrath of those who believe that a bottle of bourbon should be opened and enjoyed but I just want to see how large I can get my collection without opening any.

    BTW, I always keep two or three bottles around for occasional imbibing.

    Re: Collectors: How many "unopened" bottles do you have?

    I counted about a month ago and had 180 unopened bottles. Most of it is stuff that I bunkered because i liked it at the time. Sure glad I did cause it would've cost me a lot more to buy it today.

    I think a well stocked bunker is a great idea, especially in these times of rising costs and boubon interest, things arn't going to get cheaper.

    I have about 35 open bottles and about 5 unopened. What does that say?

    Re: Collectors: How many "unopened" bottles do you have?

    Only 27... I feel so inadequate.

    I think I need a drink.

    Damn, now I only have 26 open bottles. I feel really inadequate. I really think I need a drink.

    I can't count how many bottles I have opened.... I'm the man!

    I deserve a drink!

    Etc, etc, etc....

    -------------------------

    Seriously, 180 opened bottles! I wasn't sure there were that many brands / expressions.

    Too many, or at least my wife thinks so....

    whoops, I have 180 total bottles including duplicates. just counting those was a pain the the b*tt so I don't have the inclination to find out how many different bottles i have, probably closer half of that or less as far as being different.
