You guys are crazy with your huge amount of open bottles!! :shock: :shock:
I've been very stingy lately with opening new things and I've been on a mission to get rid of some old stock and bottles that are very low. I have managed to polish off 27 open bottles in the past few months (while only opening up a couple) bringing my open bottle count down to just 21.

I'm still around the 60 open mark. It will probably go up again soon. I'm planning another tasting.

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.

Funnily enough back to 50 Nick.

One of these days, you're going on a bender and opening up 10!

Nearly opened an Ardbeg to celebrate Lohssanami's birthday yesterday but I managed to resist.


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.

I know Nick - I see those full bottles in their beautiful packaging and just can't resist getting the seal off and a healthy portion into the Glencairn!!!!

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 :)
