Oh I dunno, there's always another Lappy coming up, but there's only one Ganga.

I've lost count, (again) of how many are open. I ought to just open all of them and then count heads!

Well update ... even after you guys started the fashion of reduction and I did try ... but as of today I am 1 off 90 :headbang:

I need help ... and before ye all chime in, yes, that help too ... a few people to drop by and drain a few bottles :dead:



I actually hit over 100 before Christmas after which I decided I needed to cop myself on. Back to 84 currently which is a major result.

Just over 80 (not including other spirits such as brandies, rums, tequilas, etc.) at last count.

That number should decrease rather substantially over the next little while. :wink:

It was 50 on Saturday but is now 46. This includes one Irish, 4 or 5 bourbons and one Tennessee whiskies. About 90 sealed.

According to Whiskybase it's 24 open and 472 closed which is probably about right.

47 open, 48 if you include the 200 mls of Kininvie from a bottle split.

Does 24 look right to you if you peruse the house? :)
