I am a hoarder by nature. If I like the way a certain fit and wash of RRL denim looks on me, I will buy 3 for when the first wears out. Same with shoes. It paid off with bourbon, since I always worried there would be a time I couldn't find my favorite whiskies. About 4 years ago, I was lucky enough to get a case (4 bottles in each) of George T Stagg and Eagle Rare 17 year old. That same year I bought 4 bottles of PVW 20 yo and was gifted a bottle of 23 yo for Christmas. It was almost as if the next year, bourbon blew up on the interwebs, and stocks disappeared entirely. I drink my whiskey. I don't sell it, I don't trade it. It's an indulgence. Not an investment. I was bummed out last night when I went to open a fresh bottle of GTS and saw that I am now down to just 2 bottles, as well as 1 bottle of ER 17, 2 of PVW 20 and 1 of PVW 15. I am not sure I will ever find these again, since I would never in my life pay more than retail for whiskey. Yeah, it brings a tear to my eye (not really, but you know what I mean) but it was a good run while at lasted.
