Just a thought - if I line them up by height while keeping twins/triplets/etc. together, my wife notices the range and the multiples and starts making noises, especially when more magically appear.  By mixing and matching and keeping them far from the ceiling lights and under shelves, etc., they attract less attention.

 

Of course, I do keep a dozen or so open and up front for immediate use; they serve as a bright, shiny object by distracting others from remembering the multiples in the dark recesses of the bunker.  Uh, if I take pictures, do I have to open the cardboard boxes (old wine cases, mostly) so the olio inside each can be seen? 

LOL. Thanks for the tips! I’ve never caught anything from my wife on any other obsessions (cars, guitars, and other costly items). With that said, I’ll keep this in mind when arranging the bunker. :)

That’s a lonely bottle of wine.

Ha was thinking the exact same thing.

 

 

Yeah, not much of a wine drinker lol. 

 

I’m not gonna lie...  I’m single, so the wine is for the ladies who don’t want bourbon.  Need to restock the supply, obviously. :D

I wouldn't be spending any time with ladies that don't want bourbon.

On the flip side, if the lady loves bourbon,  how will he ever know if she's not just using him for his whiskey?  :P

Sshhhhh.  Basement is where the "wine" boxes are - safely "aging".  Car trunk?  Dang,  I forgot about it.  Better check it as I think I have a store pick MM BP from November 2018 in there.

Here is the current status of my stash. Apologies for the weird lighting, I accidentally left my camera on "food mode". I have a shelf dedicated to BT, and also realized I could easily dedicate a shelf to HH as well (which as you can see I almost am). I need to restock the WT101!

My stash is in parts.  Pictured are: opens in dining room behind a chair leg and under a butler's table holding liqueurs and open gin, etc., basement/furnace room bunker near slot machine (which, incidentally, I registered with the FBI and the DOJ per Federal law when I bought it in the 1970s), and utility/laundry room (with shelves 20 inches deep so there's bottles behind the bottles).  NOT pictured: "wine" boxes to the right of the Smirnoff box under a workbench, a wooden wine box to the left of the WT MK (partially visible with OF, Tom's Foolery, some Booker's, etc., standing upright and which has KCs to ITS left), a shelf above the slot machine, stuff behind the Tito's box which contains no Tito's, a few scattered bottles on upper shelves in the utility room above the light bar, and a cabinet holding liqueurs and nonwhiskeys (like rum, gin, etc.) in the living room.  The trash can near the LaZBoy recently got replaced with a small bookshelf, the bottom shelf of which holds my OGD BIB and one or two other things (currently Alberta Rye Dark Batch which I'm trying to use up and a VOB 100 proof w/o BIB on it that I'm testing for potability).

Hmm. My stash seems to have grown while I wasn’t looking. In order:

1 - mostly opens on the shelf in the dining room bar and where I grab my drinks.  

2 - basement stash part 1

3 - basement stash part 2

4 - stashed in the cabinet under the open dining room shelves.

That is what you call a well stocked bomb shelter. When the poop hits the fan it’s good to see you prepared. ;)

Your Clay Risen book (next to the basic BT) looks as beat up as mine does.  Circa 2017, I asked him (via email) if he was going to digitize it, and he said he was thinking about a revised edition.  I noticed that his "Single Malt: a Guide . . ." came out in October 2018 but so far no new bourbon book.

 

I don't keep a written inventory of what I have and where it is anymore; I love the thrill of discovery when I open a box or look under a low shelf.

Without a rarefied place for display, and with youngin's in the house most of my stash is out of sight as well.  Stacks of boxes and a trunk for the open ones. 

 

Looking at buying a nice antique wood cabinet to change all that, though.

My first liquor cabinet was a Philco console radio shell.  I cut the speaker slats out and screwed them to the cross pieces just above and below them so the pieces could be lifter out as a unit, put a plywood back on it, and installed movable shelves.  It looked sort of like this --

What does it take to get one of those virgin bourbons? I've always wanted a bottle. Love your solid collection of good drinkers.

DCFan is correct.  I bought mine in VA near Fredericksburg.
