That's interesting, cause I converted because of Bowmore too:D But it was 16yo Port cask.
So in a year i've added about 65 bottles to the collection, now have far too many open bottles and even put up proper shelves albeit Ikea ones.
The drinking of malts started when I bought a bottle of Glenfiddich 12yo for a friends 25th birthday and thought why not buy one for me as well. Got huge white chocolate notes on the finish when I first tasted it and really loved it (never had those white chocolate notes again though). Then I bought a bottle of Caol Ila and now I'm a peat junkie. I stand at forty bottles now and intend to drink them all, not to mention many more.

My whisky interest started during a university course in Scotland in 1996.
Hmm, that adds up to 12 years actually, time goes faster than you think...
I noticed that it was a year ago since I posted my reply in this thread.
It felt like yesterday... time still goes fast!
I once collected whisky but now I make a point not to.
