As I am bored, I have decided to see how old my collection is as a whole. This would be calculated from the age statement but as we know, they could contain older whiskies.
Based on 50 bottles (7 are with no age statment), my collection is at least 512 years old , giving an average age of 11.9 years per bottle.
I cannot be bothered to work out the RRP then the price per year
The only one I have more than one backup of is Glen Garioch 17yo DTC because no one else wants any of that case I picked up! I have one backup of Ardbeg Uigeadail and one of DTC '81 Glenugie. The other 15 types have no backups.
What _is_ rare for me these days is the number I have unopened: 10 bottles, most taken up by the 4 backup Glen Gariochs. I've had all of them before or have another bottle open already but I have 4 bottles right now which are unopened and are their only representitive. I may save my Rosebank for spring (or may not) and am saving a bottle of '91 9yo Ardbeg to compare to Ardbeg Almost There 9yo next year. I'm sure I'll open a bottle of Bruichladdich soon but have none open at the moment (two closed).
Several bottles are just about done too. Sad state of affairs, really...
When my case of ASY arrives the average age of my collection will drop for a while.
I am certainly more the grasshopper than the ant though in some versions of the story the ant becomes the hopper's meal... any ants have any nice bottles to pass on???

I was going to weight for half bottles and such but figured this was anal enough!
856 total 'whisky' years,
15.5 year old average,
Interestingly, i don't realy consider myself a drinker of 'older' malts, and was a bit shocked that the average came out at 15 years.
So who else is going to own up to having all their 'whisky bottle' info in a spread sheet, I added a total cost colum a few months back It's amazing how it all adds up !!

How sad am I.
No sadder than I--we have pretty similar results. Expect most folks with a like number of bottles will be much the same.

I have mine on an access database rather than a spreadsheet. I did this so I can't easily sum up the total cost.
I really don't wanna know...

Could it be that I rounded pi down to 3?
If I do my calculation again, and it still works out as 2, does that mean my collection is technically not whisky and I should dispose of it?
Try rounding it up to 4
541 years with an average of 16.4 and most incredibbly an average of 135 years per month since I began 4 months ago..... I wish I could keep up with the pace, but......!!!!! don't earn enough....LOL....
