I have over 200 bottles sealed, and I only finish about 1 a month = over 200 months of drinking = over 16 years of drinking. So, that takes me until I am about 65yo or so.
Okay that is not too bad. But there are two other factors.
.> 1 - I keep buying bottles
.> 2 - I also have over 200 bottles of wine/port as well
My father just passed away this year at the age of 70. It makes me think that I might just run out of time.
wow, this is kind of a morbid topic isn't it?
Not morbid at all, in my book, and it is nice to see it being taken in the spirit in which it seemed to be intended. An eye towards the end (without becoming obsessed with and/or debilitated by the prospect of death) is one of the most powerful forces in helping us live a rich and full life. As an exercise, try starting each morning with a short meditation on perhaps on your own death, and see if these does not make your day/week more meaningful. It certainly makes me less likely to turn on the television and piss away my time.
Now, how this related to whisky? I means that I probably need to drink one of my bottles of my Hart Brothers 13yo 1982 Port Ellen sooner rather than later.
