My compliments Teun, nice setup. :)
My girlfriend thinks you are totally nuts... :)

I liked this: "All my bottles are open", I loved it when I read the amount.

Everyone on the forum wants to be your friend now. :angel:

Wow laddie teun, I'm seriously impressed - not only with the amount of bottles (all open?!), but also with the display. Nice work! It certainly beats my bottle storage of a wardrobe and a bookcase :oops:

I've never been to the Netherlands, but Nijmegen is taking my fancy all of a sudden...

Laddie Tuen:

...so what do you store in the vault? The unopened rarities?

A lovely display of SMs. The sort of Lair I'd have if the ceilings were high enough in my den of iniquity.

The more that I get into the PLOWED ways (trying many samples of many beverages instread of drinking a lot of one beverage) I have grown my collection of open beverages.

I am in the high 50's opened right now, but I can't change my vote.

Now.... laddie teun - nice, just REALLY nice. I live in earthquake country like a couple of my California friends here and we can't really make a display like that. At least without a big rail in front of all the bottles for protection (which would then kill the display).

Cheers,

Man, like everyone else here has said, that is an amazing collection! And, hands down, a true whisky lover's collection - a huge number of bottles open! I have a few friends with massive collections in the several hundred bottles and up range, but I don't think I know anyone with that many open bottles, all available and all on display. One or two might be around 100 or 150 open bottles, but 300+??? - awesome!

In addition, you have a great collection as well - some fantastic bottles there! You make me want to open some more of my bottles, but at over 50 open bottles right now, I'm still a little shy! Plus, I actually don't drink that much whisky - getting through 50 bottles would take me a easily several years. 300+ open bottles would be a lifetime of drinking. Just a second, I totally understand what you're doing now :). Brilliant (live life to the fullest) and congratulations on the courage to do that! I think I'm going to go open a Brora 30 now just to celebrate your ideology!

Cheers (and thanks)!

That's a pretty nice collection of tequilas as well. What are your thoughts on the various expressions aside from the Anejos(i.e. the Casa Noble and El Tesoro)? I've found that there haven't been too many Anejos that haven't been good to excellent, but the Cuervo Platino, Don Julio Blanco, and Cabo Wabo Repasado have all been very tasty too.

Unfortunately it looks like I'll never be able to get one now as I don't speck Ducth or German and the only suppliers I can find are in those languages.

A lovely drink Cathach


Most are sold out :cry: but still have it listed for some reason.
Fewer and fewer German shops will ship abroad these days too. I'm going to finish my bottle of Redbreast 15 tomorrow and then I'll have to work up the courage to open another one, it'll have to be a while though; they ain't makin any more of it

Thanks! It's definitely not a huge collection, but considering that I live in BC (i.e. liquor wasteland, especially concerning tequila), I've managed to truck back some mighty tasty bottles (and one or two duds :p).

My tequila preferences are definitely for Anejos (as you can obviously see!) and some blancos, though I'm pretty particular with which blancos I like and don't like. I'm generally not really into Reposados much at all, though the Casa Noble repo is an exception, probably because it's fairly "woody" for a reposado (I'd say it's similar to a lot of the younger anejos on the market).

My favourite bottles are:

San Matias Gran Reserva for day to day anejo drinking. It's a bit hard to find, but it's a phenomenal anejo and very reasonably priced considering how good it is.

For premium anejos, the 1942 is a staple for sure, but the Rey Sol is a nice treat once in a while! The Casta Weber Azul is the prize in my tiny tequila collection: it's my only unopened bottle and one that will stay that way for quite a while I suspect (until the right group of people come together :)

For reposados, the Casa Noble is my current favourite and the only reposado that I would routinely buy. I LOVE El Tesoro tequila (the blanco is one of my favourites, and my definite favourite for mixed drinks and both the anejo and the Paradiso are awesome), but the reposado is the one of their four standard bottles that i don't absolutely love, hence why I don't own it any more.

For Blancos, like I said, I really like the El Tesoro. The Casa Noble Blanco is quite nice, but I think that the El Tesoro is better. Also Asombroso blanco is really, really good, but not particularly cheap.

Not sure if that helps, but hopefully!

Cheers!

I will have to keep an eye out for some of those tequilas. There are a few more tequilas I've seen around locally that I still want to pick up as well-

Buen Amigo Reposado
Casa Noble Anejo and Blanco
La Certeza Anejo
Semental Anejo
Don Fulano Anejo
Herencia Mexicana Anejo
Patron Platinum
and yes even the 1800 Anejo

Hey RogerB:

Of those, I personally would consider the following:

Casa Noble both crystal and Anejo (the anejo is quite woody, but I love it!)
Don Fulano Anejo
Herencia Mexicana Anejo

I don't know the Certeze, nor the semental or Buen Amigo, so I can't say anything about them. however, the Patron is ridiculously expensive for what most tequila people would say is a very average anejo. it's kind of the JW Blue of the Tequila world :)

I thought the Gran Patron was the one you're referring to. The Platinum is about $50 or so. Thanks for the heads up on the others though. :thumbsup:

Buen Amigo Reposado
Casa Noble Anejo and Blanco
La Certeza Anejo
Semental Anejo
Don Fulano Anejo
Herencia Mexicana Anejo
Patron Platinum
and yes even the 1800 Anejo


Hey RogerB:

Of those, I personally would consider the following:

Casa Noble both crystal and Anejo (the anejo is quite woody, but I love it!)
Don Fulano Anejo
Herencia Mexicana Anejo

I don't know the Certeze, nor the semental or Buen Amigo, so I can't say anything about them. however, the Patron is ridiculously expensive for what most tequila people would say is a very average anejo. it's kind of the JW Blue of the Tequila world :)

Cheers!


Well I found a local spot that has the Casa Noble Blanco and Reposado, so I suspect I'll be adding those to my collection posthaste. :P


Good luck with the "hunting" - let me know what you think!

Cheers,

I've emptied 2 bottles in the past week so fewer open now than usually. And I haven't opened any new ones recently. I have 9 open currently.
