    As discussed earlier - only the patron has some remaining inventory... Besides the mixers. 

    PS - fun thread!

    @Matt86m Nice bull! I euro mount almost everything I kill. They tell great stories without consuming the 20 cubic feet an elk shoulder mount requires!

    No electricity, back in the day you put a block of ice in it to keep things cold.
    I pseudo restored the outside, interior is all original. Nickle plated the hardware.

    Since I am generally a beer kinda guy- I can monitor 12 oz at a time easier than free pour. ;)   Anyway my "Liqour cabinet" is generally when in the mood I buy a bottle of something.

    Anyway went to a local distillery signed up for a "tasting"


    Came home made this- Horseradish Vodka


    So then last night I mixed this up




    We go out there several times a year. Fun place. Our kids went to school with their kids.

    Granted the scenery may have changed in south Texas but eleven months ago I was able to find Eagle Rare (at the "normal price point") in Austin, on the shelf.  Happy Hunting!  (BTW- that has not happened here for a few years.)
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    That Yamazaki is some good stuff.  When I went to Japan a couple years ago I was able to mooch a bunch of that and even a couple glasses of the 25.  I was looking all over trying to find any of those bottles in the line up to bring home and couldn't find it.

    I may or may not have 5 bottles stashed under the stairs...I usually grab 2 bottles when I can find it at a good price (sub $45).  Some people may say that I'm hoarding, but it gets drank a lot plus I'll share (give) bottles to friends.

    We've got a place near us that distills horseradish vodka and it is a game-changer for bloodies.
    @StillH2OEgger Go on....
    It looks like it might be Referent?
    Yes. We did a tour/tasting at 45th Parallel in New Richmond, WI and discovered it there. Not sure how easy it is to find, but I think Total Wine carries it. It's good stuff.

    Definitely a strong gin preference for me and most of the other stuff probably hasn't been touched in a while. Pretty basic, and no scotch or bourbon which I admit is sacrilege. I've been to bars that have fewer options than many of you on here.

    That Hibiki 21 is one I like a lot when I (used) to go to Japan. It's sold out now.. and that bottle is worth about $700 new.   When it was plentiful, I'd get the 30. I also like the Hakushu, I find Yamazaki to peaty for me.  That's what I like about Suntory - from peaty to light - Yamazaki, Hibiki, Hakushu... Take your pick.

    Hibiki is tough to find!  I scored a bottle of Hibiki Harmony around Christmas.  I’m not big into scotch, but the Japanese whiskeys I’ve tried are mellow, and a little sweet.  Right up my alley.

    My brother said he had to beg a worker at the distillery in Japan to let him buy 2 Yamazaki 18’s. They kept saying they were out, but they sold him 2 that day. We finished one and saving the other one until we find a replacement.

    I am sure some fellow Eggers would help you look (and drink); we’re kind and generous like that.

    I rotate a few on the counter depending on what we/friends (in normal times) are drinking and the rest go into the cabinet. The pull out shelves are very helpful to see what you have hiding.  











     Nice setup there man!

    I LOVE some of the cool liquor cabinets some of you guys have!  Way cool!

    I still love my Big Green Eggs, but somehow I don't post on social media much, anymore.  But I thought maybe some of you might be amused by one man's descent into madness RE: liquor cabinet.  It's a sad story.  ;)

    I got interested in cocktails many years ago, and I needed to buy a bottle I didn't have for this cocktail, and then something else I didn't have for that cocktail, and then some other liquor for yet another cocktail... and you do that over enough years and it gets pretty stupid, frankly.  I don't even drink that much.  I usually just have one drink, and don't even have one every day.  I do enjoy a good cocktail, though.

    Here's my under the stairs "liquor cabinet":


    Just two questions.

    What is your address?

    Can I sleep on your couch?

    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.
  • LegumeLegume Posts: 11,681
    No doors, nothing holding those bottles back, those full shelves are giving me anxiety.
