I try and have about 5 open at any one time, allows for differing moods to take you to the right dram.

I have also got something decanted, but i can't remember for the life of me what it is - might be right for a blind tasting once i get over this cold :D :D :D

Cynic! :)

I found them because when I did a count up the other night I never thought to look on the desk upstairs. I noticed them on the way past this morning. There may be others kicking around, but I think that's them all.

You're such an inspiration. Finished the Glenlivet 12 last week and the Sig Strathmill 1988 on Friday. Probably finish a couple more off between now and New Year's eve.

I'm glad I haven't been paying too much attention to you guys and the clearing out process. My liver would not thank me but I do have too many open :oops:

It would seem that Nick is working his way towards a mass opening. :P After all he has stated his open bottle limit is 100. :wink:

It is sad LSD, but there still seems to be a fair bit of it kicking around here despite reports of its demise.

Mac 10 finished now. Down to 26 open and Mrs. Willie is looking increasingly happy at the tidiness in the whisky room.

Ardbeg 10
JW Green
Jim Clark Glen Moray SC edition 4, a red wine casked 9 YO that reminds me of a subtler Abunadh...
Longrow CV

No clue how many I have open at the moment. But the Laphroaig 10 went down in a drizzle of glory. So at least three have bitten the dust in the last month or so.

Had a good clearout last night:

Golden Cask Bladnoch 17yo 55%
G&M Lochside 91-07
Laphroaig 15yo
Laphroaig QC
Sig Glenisla 28yo 48.8%
Old Pulteney 17yo
MM Glenlossie 11yo 46%
Sig MacDuff 24yo 46%

I guess that's me down to 18 open bottles now.

Ha ha very funny. :) I've just been collecting a lot of bottles in the cupboard that didn't have anything very much left in them so I've been trying to clear them out before Christmas. Then i can open some new stuff. :D

It seems like you're getting a move on, Nick. I, on the other hand, seem to be opening more and more bottles lately. Good thing I buy doubles. :)

17 currently - will be 18 in a few minutes... :thumbsup:

I've got about 4 or 5 that are one or two drams away from being finished off - so I'll just HAVE TO go pick up a few more. The misses will understand that, I'm sure.
