    I saw Little Book for the first time at a store I hadn't been into forever. It was $200 though, so I didn't even look close enough to see what chapter it was or anything.

    Their Booker's was $100 which is $20 more than the average in my area so they're definitely on the higher end of the price point.

    Eagle Rare was $39 so I went ahead and got one :D

    She drinks cabs, mostly, and prefers them room temp? Hell, I don't know much about wine. :rofl:

    I need a bigger cabinet. Getting her a wine fridge in the process might be fair ;).

    I'm right there with you, I don't know jack about wine. I know my favorite I had was on a cruise it was a spatlese(sp?) reisling, it was about $60 a bottle was super good and I think this one was from Germany. We took the label off one of the 4 bottles we had on the cruise and I've never been able to find it. :rofl:

    You should get your display with nice LED back lighting with colors and such. :)

    Ya I like LED lighting, it looks nice and the colors can help set a mood for the gathering. Our next place I plan to try and put it all over and have a nice control system.

    I'd really like to add LEDs. I have to figure out a way to make them work nicely in that cabinet. I'd want the light to be visible, but not the actual lights (if that makes sense). I'd also want them on a little switch attached to the door. I use an enclosed cabinet to keep light off of the bottles, so I'd only want light when the doors are open for display.

    I put LEDs in a shadow-box for a Mavs jersey that I have and it looks pretty nice. Cheap, too. Maybe I'll snag another strand.

    I'll be with @Bigdaddy4760 tomorrow and maybe Saturday working on the pit, so we'll see how motivated I am for other projects when I get back home ;).

    I use LED strips that you can cut to the right length. I've also been using ones that have a switch and can also be controlled via an app on your phone. What's nice is the app allows you to setup scenes and control multiple strips at once. You can also put them behind a wood strip to hide or in a tube to diffuse the light. Ya I'm an electronics geek as I've told you. One year I will be on that Great Christmas Light Fight show on TV. :rofl:

    Yup. If I really enjoy it it'll be nice to have a bunker bottle. But sometimes I get a good deal on 2 bottles, like EHT Single barrel, and give one bottle away before trying it. Then realize I made a mistake :rofl: @bvbull200 called it spot on :laugh:

    Lol, I'm in the same boat! All those damn wine bottles taking up space. We also have some china and non-liquid holding glassware in the cabinet. Byproducts of merging 2 households into one and being sentimental about too many things to purge much. But I'm workig on it. It's like Tetris moving stuff around.

    I absolutely love this stuff. I have a bottle of the 21 year sitting at home.

    Gives you a good reason to hunt down more then. :)

    They are building a micro distillery/restaurant around us. Once it's open I'm going to have to try it out. We have a bunch of Brewery/Restaurants around us I want to try some of them out this summer, Eric and I have been talking about doing a brewery road trip towards the UP to visit a few of the places we've heard about.

    Big fan of Barrel Bourbon but this one isn’t my fav. Not sure if they are sourcing from a new spot or what...

    I had a bottle of that batch as well. It was okay for the first half of the bottle, but the heel was fantastic.

    Finally picked up some parafilm for bottles that only get opened once a year. Super easy to work with stretching around the neck and cork... 10/10 would recommend.

    First step is clearing empties. I keep having all of these projects in mind, but they never come to fruition :rofl:. I'll still throw most in a spare storage spot. The really cool ones just HAVE to go to some use.

    These are from a couple/few years and are bottles I've had or bottles that have been part of tasting nights that I've hosted, but the crew all chipped in on.

    The first one of these 1920s was opened and finished on 01/12/2019 with my neighbor. He and I have polished 2 additional, plus a couple I made my way through. You could say I'm a fan. :laugh:20200116_180135.jpg

    I have a few near empties that need to get finished off, too.
    20200116_183036.jpg

    Back at it in there to make some more space!

    I need to get me some of that. I have a few bottles that I probably ought to add that to. Right now they just have an inert gas in them and a trustworthy cork, but that's a better idea.

    I just got home from a trip to Missoula Montana for work. There wasn't much to be found in the realm of allocated bourbon so I bought local. I've just poured a glass and I'm letting it sit for a few minutes. Distilled and bottled in Montana. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. 20200116_173053.jpg 20200116_173527.jpg

    I added a 2x4 at the back of my shelf that I painted black. Gives me more room and the 750ml bottles easily fit on the 2x4.

    I've been pondering adding some stainless steel sheet metal doors to the front ... I just have to figure out the design and how to actually make them haha
