That would mean I would need about a dozen decanters and would need to buy and etch a new one each time I found a new spirit.

Touche'.

It's more of an issue of space. I prefer to fill my bar's upper glass-fronted cabinets with cool-looking bottles and nice glassware. The lower cabinets are reserved for the booze.

That, and I may only have a particular booze once. I won't feel bad throwing out a $2.50 - $5.00 paper or leather tag but it would be pretty wasteful to have to pitch a $30+ etched decanter.

Word, I totally get that just giving you ****.
re: the etching....maybe you could like strikethrough the old one when you re-etch for a new one? they you'll have like a history of what you've drank nice and handy. Just an idea.

Why not just have your butler announce each bottle as he serves it?

Because I send the help to their quarters after dinner and I often prefer to make a nightcap or six.

If you were a Master Machinist, you'd have 2-3 black full-sized Snap-on tool chests, and know exactly what was in each drawer. Of course the booze will make this more difficult in a liquor cabinet, but you'd be pretty zen if you did it....no etching cost either.

Christmas booze. Rosemary-infused vodka, Cody Road bourbon, and Balvenie Doublewood 12 year.

Aunt gave me a partial bottle of Grand Mariner last night. Mixed with pineapple soda, it makes a surprisingly tasty drink. Just the thing for a cold, dreary December afternoon.

What the - ?!

Braineack drinking single malt Scotch? Where's the grenadine and umbrella?


Also, I'm not sure if I am more disturbed or impressed that you got Pookie to wear a wig and pajamas.

Haven't posted here since nearly 2011. But I thought I'd jump in with a gift from my father.

No idea what I'm going to do with it.
