Bourbon Boiler

When you see "Kentucky Bourbon BBQ Glaze" on a menu, and your first instinct is to wonder why it didn't say "Straight" or give an age statement and question it's quality. Turns out it was pretty good.

When you do the math and realize you have about a 6 year supply of whiskey, but are still rationalizing why you have to buy more bottles of something you already have (insert ECBP here). "But dear . . . you don't understand!"

Guilty as charged.

When going on a buying freeze means you stay away from the liquor store for a few days, at least.

When considering the storage of your whiskey collection most options don't pass muster on account of the weight limits per shelf.

When you start designing the label for the barrel you know you will eventually buy.

On that note how about when you consider making your own barrel of bourbon.

I really shouldn't comment on this thread, since I'm sure I have NOT YET gone 'Overboard'. :rolleyes:

I still have a couple slots empty on my shelves, and will have a few more when I drain a few low-fill bottles;..... BUT, I do foresee a day fairly soon, when the several hundred bottles I now have will no longer fit on those shelves with the several dozen more I'll probably add in the next few weex. If I decide on a room addition, then maybe, I'll be closing in on 'Overboard'.

....NAAAAAAW; everybody needs a little extra room from time to time, RIGHT? :shocked:

until I read your post I forgot a couple months ago I got to searching the web and found a lot of sites that sell copper stills and all you need for start up. I have plenty of room in the basement but "the boss" had a real negative view on it when I subtely brought it up in conversation.

When you sell off your power tools and give away your old fishing gear to free up shelf/basement/garage space for bottles.

When you start to dedicate a room in your home as a home whiskey lounge. When you ask if a guest wants a whiskey and you break down by category, scotch, bourbon, Tennessee, American, canadian, Irish, Welsh, japanese, Indian, peated or non peated, single, blended, vatted, well... you get the idea.

Gary, are you really expecting us to believe you only have a 6 year supply of whiskey?  ;)   Or is that just what you're telling the better half?

:lol:  That post was in 2013, which just shows how far I've come (or fallen?) since!  I think I've up'd my intake a bit, but right now I'd day I'm comfortably sitting on 8-9 yrs.  My better half . . . I try not to bring the topic up :)  Although whenever I come in with a bottle she asks if I recently discovered a shortage or . . .

That's weird.  I didn't see YOU at my house on Christmas Eve when I started asking what people wanted.
