OK I was going to put them all down but after just counting 3 times because I could not believe I let myself get this carried away!!!!

I have just under 70 Whiskeys open on the bar! Ooopps!

Whiskey:

Bernheim Original

Would that be the infamous Berheim Straight Wheat Whiskey?

I like it, but it is a bit short on the end though.

It is, and I could not agree more with your assessment.

Okay, I'm not proud of this as it points out a serious defect in my personality. It seems I open fast but drink slow. Also, I may suffer from adult attention deficit disorder which forces me to move on quickly leaving many tasks undone. Okay, I feel better.

75 open bottles but I swear I'm going to finish a couple soon.

Anyone want to help out?

In my record/music room, I have one shelf where I've omitted the jazz LPs and substituted whiskey bottles. My open bottles are all on that shelf, split about fifty/fifty between scotch and bourbon. The current line-up:

Scotch:

1. Highland Park 10 (silk in a glass)

2. Springbank 10 (similar in balance to Highland Park, but a tad peatier)

3. Aberlour A'bunadh (just got this for Christmas, it tastes very close to Macallan Cask Strength)

4. Glen Rothes 12 (Signatory Vintage)

5. Glen Scotia 12 (gotta have all my Campelltown bases covered)

6. Caperdonich 11 (Signatory Vintage)

7. Ardbeg 10 (this bottle hasn't wowed me)

8. Lagavulin 16 (the classic smoky Islay)

9. Laphraig 15 (more balanced than the 10)

Irish:

1. Bushmill's 10 (a regular pour, it's liquid candy)

2. Knappogue Castle 1995 (I like it because it tastes just like Bushmill's!)

Bourbon:

1. Sazerac 18 (awesome stuff, rarely poured but always savored)

2. George T Stagg (a little too strong, if truth be told)

3. Pappy Van Winkle 15 (right now, my only open wheated bourbon)

4. Wild Turkey Rye (Maryland rye, late seventies vintage)

5. Wild Turkey RR 101 (my regular bourbon pour until the bunker runs dry)

6. Old Grand Dad 86 (National Distillers bottle)

7. Dickel No. 12 (different, and always drinkable)

8. Henry McKenna's single barrel (my only open Bardstown pour)

9. Rock Hill Farms (I can't stand the bottle stopper)

10. I.W. Harper 15 (I was able to bunker a bunch of this, and drink it regularly as my 80 proof pour)

11. Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon (only about one shot left of this, though)

I can honestly say I don't think I have even bought 75 bottles in my lifetime. Of course I am only about 9 months into this whol bourbon thing.

Dan, I soooo understand. I am in the same boat here. After new years I am at the 75 mark for bourbon bottles as well... If we combine forces we could rival that of the best bars in KY :D

We could probably keep everyone at the next bourbon festival well oiled. :icon_pidu:

Kickert, with that awesome "bang for the buck" bourbon buying formula you have, it won't be long before you have bourbon stacked in every available space and your foundation hollering for relief. :drinking:

Also in the 75-100+ bottle bracket after many years. Keeping the nitro on-hand and ready to preserve. I had a rare thing going on with Dickel's a few weeks ago but quickly tired of that Vitamin flavor. Back to the real world... open bottle of Blanton's. By the way - hey Spun - i caught that Blanton's line-up that you posted a while ago. Enough to make any man jealous... BB

:D Send me 8 some empty 50ml bottles and I will send you some of each (send 9 if you want 50 ml of the Single Barrell as well).

Rule is though, you have to fill them back up with bourbon and ship them back ...
