is that an old packaging of the port wood 21yo or is that how they come in your parts?
in uk they come in a tube like the others in the balvenie range.

You can use http://imageshack.us/ to upload images for free

As for the Balvenie, that's the only packaging I have seen around here. I purchased it last year. Not sure of the details.

The Portwood 21 used to come in a tube, but about a year ago Balvenie put it in a box and added 30 bucks to the price. :evil:

I'd be here all night if I were to post all the pictures individually, but if you select "Private Cellar" on the left and then do a bit of clicking, you'll be able to get through all 363 yourself.

But this is a "Collection" and not a "drinking inventory".

OMG. I wish you were my neighbour, but you wouldn't be allowed to emigrate here, as you own a National Treasure. Every blessed bottle is sealed and some that I've only read of in the forums and in the press.

Thank you for sharing your collection with us in photos.

That's only 40% of your collection? :shock:

Can I assume most of your Kildalton stuff is in the other closet/boxes or are you just not that big of a fan of those bottles?

Most impressive you guys. Its really good to see someone else's collection.

Thesh nice selection of bourbon's thanks for showing them.

V7 I love your collection of springbanks.

MT you have put in a lot of work photographing and cataloging all that. It must be very satisfying. Makes me realise I must sometime get round to doing mine. In your private collection do you ever open and drink any of them. If you don't at what point will you. Because if the inevitable happens some one else will enjoy the fruits of your labours?

No Les, the private collection is not for drinking. At least not by me.

I am sure that one day some other connoisseurs (and maybe other collectors) will be very lucky when they get to buy out my collection. But as far as I'm concerned, it's an investment policy.

The website was originally created for my collection of whisky and also my photography, although this has now been moved more to the background.
I am not a website programmer, but someone showed me how to use FrontPage and once I got the hang of it, everything else was pretty easy. Just quite long-winded in time required to photograph each bottle individually.
If I remember correctly, I needed something like 2 full days just to bring the bottles out, photograph them and put them back into my storage again.
But once that initial hurdle is overcome, the maintenance and inclusion of new additions is pretty straightforward.

If you ever want to do something similar yourself and need any pointers or even help, just let me know.
I'm sure we can come to some arrangement.
