Mark’s collection

Posted by on May 6, 2012

It was that time.  Time to clean out my whisky cabinets.  Yes plural, I have two cabinets.  I have a fireplace in my family room and a 3 shelf cabinet on each side.  On one side is my”drinking whisky”. The other side is my collectibles and “top shelf.”  I had 308 bottles of bourbon, scotch, Irish and other whiskies.  I ran out of room in each cabinet and I was placing new bottles on top.  My wife kept telling me I had to do something, and she was right.  There really wasn’t a need to keep all the open bottles because to be honest there were quite a few bottles I really was not fond of.  So why keep them?   I got rid of 22 bottles on the drinking side, and placed about 12 bottles of my collectibles in my office cabinet.  Plus, some of my “top shelf” whisky I put into my drinking side.  My “top shelf” whisky is not so much top shelf by price, but availability.  So now I have enough room to grow again.    Here is my collection to date.  Keep in mind, some of the collectibles could easily be rotated into the drinking side.
