    I just counted...there's 229 unopened, though there is lots of multiples.

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

    I have 143 unopened and a number of these are duplicates. I have just returned from a visit to Lexington, KY and I am afraid I went a bit overboard as it is impossible to get much of a variety in the PA liquor stores. I am really enjoying the Four Roses small batch and single barrel, and I found some of the BTAC in a small shop in Maryland and could not pass it up. Cheers!

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

    I have 12 bottles total...11 opened...the only one unopened is the ORVW 10/107 I just bought (a duplicate). It's a combination of lack of will power and getting a later start in acquisitions than the rest of you guys...But, I'm working on it.

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

    I have 22 bottles of bourbon unopened and about 12 opened. The 12 is down from a previous high as I have been making an effort to reduce the # of bourbons on the shelf that I don't love. My new focus is to have about 10 of the one's I truly have to have and just bunker them well.

    Hi Sippin Jim,
    In our collection we have only 9 un-opened bottles of bourbon. Of course all the bottles are signed by the master distiller. Any other bottle entering our home is "open game" especialy the small batches or single barrels! billie

    Jeez, don't try to do math in your head when you've had a few fingers.
