17 currently - will be 18 in a few minutes... :thumbsup:

I've got about 4 or 5 that are one or two drams away from being finished off - so I'll just HAVE TO go pick up a few more. The misses will understand that, I'm sure.

Cleaned up a bit, and used a couple that I didn't like for Toddys, and now I'm down to 14.

I thought it was quite a spectacular dram, and my wife (who does not like whisky) thought that it was pleasant (not sure if that is a good thing though.
It was quite fruity and chewy on the palate and had Murray Mints on the nose and finish as I recall. Will do proper tasting notes for this after my next dram.

Reading through the replys should this topic be called, how many bottles do you have open now as opposed to, how many open bottles do you normally have? One suggests an average, how many open bottles do you 'normally' the other specifically asks, how many bottles do you have open now, something that might be in a state of flux, for reasons that are many.
This question after all, was posted in the whisky poll section not in a more general part the forum.

Open

22 SMSW
2 Anejos
2 Jins
1 Vodka
1 Rum
1 Port wine

Two years back, two bottles open at a time would have been considered unnecessary, because only Chivas 12 was in stock.

Is that 22 Single Malt Scotch Whisky or 22 bottles of Single Malt Scotch Whisky society bottles open?

Either way I would be interested to know what they are.

I've got 19 bottles open and ready to drink. But this Caol Ila 1984 Samaroli is calling my name. But so does that Bowmore 1995 CWC.

I'm a bit more modest than. I just opened the new release of the Glenfiddich 18yo so now I have 16 bottles open. My Caol Ila 18yo will be next.

I've got 18 bottles open right now, which makes a little less than 50 % of my collection.

You guys are crazy with your huge amount of open bottles!! :shock: :shock:
I've been very stingy lately with opening new things and I've been on a mission to get rid of some old stock and bottles that are very low. I have managed to polish off 27 open bottles in the past few months (while only opening up a couple) bringing my open bottle count down to just 21.

I'm still around the 60 open mark. It will probably go up again soon. I'm planning another tasting.
