Gee I'm over 50 at 55... oh you don't mean age?

Still holding firm at 61 open. My buddy, the LC manager, figures I should sample all of them like he has. But then I'd have to put them all out on the shelf with the other "opens" rather than squirreling them away in my "tickle trunk". Unfortunately the trunk only has room for one more unopened bottle. I need another trunk.

Wow Nick, I'm honored you thought about opening one yesterday.

I am now at 47 open. Never thought I'd be at this point.

That's both quite awesome and a little frightening. :wink:

I can't pin down exactly how many I 'have on the go' at this very moment, but I'm certain it's well over 60. This was definitely not my intention. But it seems lately that next to every bottle I purchase has its top popped in no time flat. Impatience can have its rewards, I suppose.

94 open, I have explained to MrsT that this actually reduces my alcohol consumption because the wider the choice there is the longer it takes me to select my next dram thereby shortening the time I am actually drinking :)

D'you mean "falling over?"

Nick, time does not permit me to hang out here as much as i used to, but hope you and Dawn and the little one are well.

BTW I must recommend "Whisky Lounge" in all its guises. Most friendly! Next event is an Arran tasting in St. James SW1 on Tuesday

I'm going to add The Nikka from the barrel to the list which makes it 48 open and 20 closed.

(I don't usually add the blends or bourbons - If I did it would be 50 open and 21 closed.)

What do you think, should I add the blends? :lol:

Why not? If you can actually pick Nikka from the Barrel as a blend from tasting it let me know, you'd be the first.
