About 17, down from a recent high of 26. Usually about 6-10.

I honestly can't be bothered to do a bottle count at the present moment. All I know is that I'm doing my best to get the number of open bottles below that of my unopened whiskies, which currently number 63. It's a pleasant struggle, it is.

I would love to have to deal with that struggle. A few hopefully quick questions for those of you that have many unopened bottles.

Are some of your unopened bottles "investment" bottles? Or do you tend to stock up on a few favorite bottles whenever they are on sale?

Basically I have a hard time comprehending having a number such as 60 bottles unopened, and while I am sure none of you really went to a store and purchased 60 bottles at once, and it rather was a fact of buying more than you were drinking over a decent length of time.

No - to be honest, I'm not really up to date on the PLOWED bottles - I take it, it's a gem?

Just returned from an awesome weekend at the Victoria Whisky Festival. 60+ malts in two days - Yum Yum!

Oh I dunno, there's always another Lappy coming up, but there's only one Ganga.

I've lost count, (again) of how many are open. I ought to just open all of them and then count heads!
