Scott:
Don't worry about numbers of bottles, just relax and list what you've got. There are going to be some lovely drams in your collection that others of us may not yet have been able to acquire, so will applaud your good fortune. 50 odd is a pretty darn good selection so, please feel free to post it.

I thought I would show a pic of my collection. I just found a place that will host my pics and I can't help but post them now.

The top shelf is open bottles and the second 2 are about 3 deep with unopened bottles.

Geez...how long ago did I write that? Well, well done! If you actually have all of those, I'll recommend to Matt that you be reclassified as "New Member & Legend".

Long Time ago Mr. TH (scroll back to page 4 or 5 of this thread...) :wink:
But I was reading some exerts out of this long thread, and couldn't resist answering to this one...
And to answer your question: Yes I have all of them, and I'm especially proud of the Old 1973 and 1978 Lagavulin OB's...
If you like modern Lagavulin, these old ladies are in the stellar part of whiskyworld... "where no man has gone before"...and all that. :wink:
No seriously. I love Lagavulin, and I do think it is one of the best whisky's on that Island, but old style Lagavulin is humblingly close to perfection!!

Well, I just scrolled back, and I see I ended with "Now someone show us your collection of 37 Lagavulins...." So you're still 17 short! And while the Sigs and the Dun Bheagan are reputed to be Lags, I've never seen anything official confirming it.

But never mind. You are now officially a legend in your own lunchtime.

THe sig's Vintage Islay are definitely Lagavulin... untill 2004 or thereabouts, when they changed to being Caol Ila...(exept for one particular importer, who still gets the Laga!)
I have seen definite proof that the ones I have are Lagavulin!
Plus, the proof is in the taste...no doubt there!

Looks good Aidan - lots of interesting bottles...

Is that an Ardbeg '77 on the bottom shelf ?

Hi Jan

Yes, that's the Ardbeg 77. I have a couple of them. Got one on Islay last october for only £69, which is about €100.

Hi Adrian

Sometimes I like it, but most of the time I don't think it's great. Maybe it depends on what I've eaten beforehand. Have you tried it?

Was not overly impressed either... I was looking for my notes on it but could not find them but remember that it was not one to be repeated. I must start giving bushmills more time as I never realy got into the 10 or 16yo's either but loved Blackbush :roll: . All the millenium expressions were great though.

I got six bottles from the same chap and had an enjoyable weekend back in Beal Feirste picking them up too! I first tasted the 25yo in Aldens restaurant at £10 a dram. It was so impressive, my companion and I went for second helpings!

They're still very well priced, I think. you can pick them up on eBay for about 100 euro.

Also, there was some of the 25 yr old bottled at cask strength, due to some error. It's available in the Celtic Whiskey Shop in Dublin.

My fav is the Glen Elgin, some of my tasting notes .....

Glen Elgin 13 year old
Signatory Cask Strength Collection

Distilled: 06/06/1991
Bottled: 06/04/2005
Matured in a refill Sherry butt
61.1% Alc./Vol.

Color: Bronze
Nose: Fruity/Orange, some Sherry (adding water brings out smoke)
Palate: Slightly creamy and robust, an orange liqueur~sherry taste
Finnish: Long, sherry giving way to a touch of smoke.

I don't want to bore people with a list of all the bottles I own, but this is a list of the 15 that I currently have open:

    Allt a'Bhainne 1992 Cadenheads 12yo cask strength
    Ardbeg 6yo SMWS 33.57 cask strength
    Ben Nevis OB 13yo port wood finish
    Bowmore Voyage OB port wood finish cask strength
    Clynelish 16yo The Bottlers cask strength
    Clynelish 1993 Cadenheads 12yo cask strength
    Glen Grant 1989 Cadenheads 16yo bourbon barrel (!)
    Glen Moray 1986 Commemorative Bottling OB cask strength
    Glenugie 1984 20yo OMC
    Lochnagar 1993 12yo Provenance
    North Port 1981 CC (43%)
    Tomintoul 16yo OB
    Tullibardine 1988 OB
    Green Spot Pure Pot Still Irish Whiskey
    George T Stagg 129 proof

This shows what I actually drink. When I finish a bottle, I don't replace it with a direct equivalent but try to go for something different. I hope it reflects interesting whiskies rather than deep pockets.
