That's a very nice look. Love seeing the bottles in front of their original boxes!

The favourite opened bottles (which are regularly rotated) are discreetly stored in one of the household closets. I was robbed a couple of years ago and all the bottles that I had in my living room glass cabinet were taken, so that is when I decided to hide things from sight.

Perhaps not, but I'd rather have the whisky over the vases anyways My g/f on the other hand.......

I'm considering tall cabinets with lockable doors, but will have to wait and see what's left in finances after the renovations are complete on the main floor. If anyone has ideas and photos they'd like to share, I'd be interested in seeing them.

I tested it out this evening and you can actually fit 9 bottles with OE packaging per shelf so 36 bottles is the max capacity of this display. Not a huge amount but more than enough to keep me going for a bit.

Pick a shelf every week and a dram for every day of the week then

The cabinets are great as they have glass doors on three shelves, for display and a lower solid door for the more valuable items.
Nice to be almost back to the forums and to enjoying whisky again. Both will hopefully be on a regular basis. By the by, the renovated house looks great. well worth all the effort to upgrade it.
I ache, though, all over.

I have a collection of about 25 bottles which I put on top of my little bar. I need to get a picture.
