Yes you do, you don't have enough space

There will never be enough space.

Yep, when you start "storing" on top of your bar counter, it's time for more space.

Maybe you should speak to my shelf guy...;)

That's not where I store my whisky, those shelves are only for open bottles. The stuff on the bar was "in transit" stuff.

I'll speak to your "shelf guy" when I find my new house, how good are his welding skills?

He only works with wood.

Sorry I didn't realize you need industrial level storage....:laugh::laugh:

That shelf looks like a real barman's shelf...a beautiful and eclectic mixture of spirits and other quaffable stuff.

I could get really drunk there...

Hahah the clock is a humidity sense and yes, running out of space
Also...stop hiding the good stuff in the back when taking pics.

That Laphroaig and BenRiach should be up front...the JW Green too. ;)

We like showing off our collections here....especially me.

Boxes go at the back, it’s like Tetris until I figure out where and how to store them. The wine setup is ok using the beer bottle carry and the champagne goes on the side of the bar. Craft beer goes on the bottom shelf

Jirre talk about all your eggs in one basket...if that contraption falls over, you're fukked!!

Also: I would have hidden those Budweiser and Hansa beers....;)

Nice bubbly though.
Beers I get for free each month (3 cases) from sab. Normally I have no choice in the matter

Well, I got home, looked at my collection and had to make a call..

Something familiar and "the usual" or something different? So different it was...

Kicked off with a Christian Drouin Calvados.

Incredible amounts of stewed apple and sultanas on the nose, carrying through to more of the same on the palette. Nice dry and oaky finish. What a start.



Then decided to attack myself with a sherry bomb and what better than this bad boy:

Honey and sultanas on the nose with huge amounts of PX sherry.

On the palate dark chocolate, mint and some tropical fruit, finishing with beautiful, spicy oak. All perfectly supported by the 46% ABV.

What a dram !!

Interesting news that I just received:


The judges at the International Whisky Competition awarded Ardbeg Corryvreckan the 'Best Cask Strength 2019'.

They only had 8 minutes to score the dram apparently.

One of my all time favorites...and the obvious choice.

See all the results here, very interesting reading:

One of my personal favourites as well. A fantastic dram with loads of character.

I am going to Italy in October.

Any good Italian whiskeys I should try?

Or are they not a whiskey making country?
