Is there a Stage 6? You know, where you return to warn others like the Ghost of Marley. :mrgreen:

I'm pretty sure there is Rich, in fact I can think of at least 2 people I know that might fit in there! :insane:

I would be in Stage 2. I am a 'buy-to-drink' kind of person (don't like to call myself connoisseur yet as I lack the sophistication associated with that word).

What surprised me was that, in just two years time since I hit this forum, I am at stage 2. I would not have even guessed that the people belonging to Stage 3-5 exist before I came here. Stage 4-5 surprise me even now :shock: :D

And there are 9 Terminals already voted in :shock: :shock:

I put myself down for stage 3 but I am certain that Maxine is thinking at least a 4 - at least that is what she is starting to tell me! :insane:

I couldn't say. An enthusiastic fanatic with a curious obsession.

What sort of English was that!

What I meant to say was....... I am now steering towards full obsession now that I am re-configuring our home in order to store the whisky collection in a better way! :oops:

I am still very much finding my way and have a long way to go to consider that I might become a connoissuer. There is an element of collector in me, but in the sense of squirrel rather than nut. When I have found a whisky I really like, and if the price is tempting, I will buy a couple of bottles for a rainy day.

I began with the Islays and Islands, finding peat and pepper to be distinctly moorish, but of late I have started to discover the delights of the sherry monsters. I don't think of this as me learing to become a connoisseur, more a case of me being an enthusiastic amateur explorer.

The most I have spent to date on a bottle has been about £50 and although more expensive bottles have found their way into various on line shopping baskets, the nerve has not held.

Were I to stop buying, I have enough whisky salted away to keep me going at current levels of consumption for about 5 years. Given the range of whiskies sitting on the shelves however, I would consider it more a stash than a collection.

So in summary, a stage 2 explorer with squirrel like tendencies. :thumbsup:
