My Bourbon Bunker
1. I may need a separate insurance policy just for the whiskey ;)
2. I like bourbon!!! Almost 80 percent is bourbon followed by 10 percent rye. The remaining 10 percent is substantially American whiskey, with a handful of bottles from Ireland, Scotland and Canada. My goal is to have the best selection of bourbon in a two-hour radius #bourbongoals
3. While about two-thirds of the bottles remain unopened, I intend to sample and share every bottle. I'm not collecting them to sit on a shelf like a trophy or to resell for a profit although I could be convinced to trade for something I don't have.
5. The one emotion I have not been able to conquer is FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out. I buy many bourbons before I ever try them or I'll buy a backup, or a backup to the backup. Insurance so I don't run out. Or miss out. Old Grand-Dad 114 is rumored to be discontinued. I bought five. Once they're gone, they're gone. I found Weller Antique 107 for the first time in a random store while driving through New York. I bought seven. There's no telling when I'll ever see that one again. Same goes for the only time I saw Elmer T. Lee. I bought four and only because there were only four left on the shelf. They're all delicious bourbons. And since bourbon doesn't go bad, what's the harm in bunkering a few extras? At worse, they will make great party gifts. Who brings wine to someone's house anymore? It's bourbon, baby. BYOB. Bring your own bourbon.
