Looks like a decent supply of single malts there. I think I spy a Lagavulin 16 way down at the end. One of my favourites.

I have a decent collection going, single malts, bourbons, Irish whiskey and some really nice rum and tequila. Plus we keep about 100 bottles of wine, you need to be prepared for the Zombie apocalypse.

What I like about your collection is that it appears well used!

That's the worst part, it's expensive to keep up the supply.

I'm almost about to resign my title as "coolest guy on the internet` and hand it over to you.

Almost...

We's got some similar tastes.

I'm actually looking to make something for all the wine I got floating around...haven't figured out what to do yet.

here's a close up of the textured design


and painted!





here's the frames spread out on the floor to give us some ideas on how to place them on the wall. all the empty frames I actually painted them gloss white as they were this brown wood color. also towards the bottom the smaller frames were also a wood color which I ended up painting silver. the "Blessed" sign the frame was also a wood color but I ended up painting it silver also which turned out pretty cool as it still shows the wood texture to it


and here's what we ended up with

Absolutely LOVE it!!! The textured design the color and especially the Family photos and words to live by!

Actually the whole top shelf is my rums, some really good stuff there too. If you can get a bottle of the Kirk & Sweeny 23 it's off he hook, same for he 21 year old Barcardi The lower shelf is my Bourbon collection, the Jim Beam Distiller Select is outstanding, probably the best Bourbon I've ever had, by far better IMHO than any of the Pappy's.....Cheers.

Thanks, there's tons of ideas on Pinterest and other Wine Forums, we live in Wine country and my wife is just starting her Sommelier training. She's going to retire from her current roll in about a year and wants to do that for her next thing.

I made the wine racks on the wall out of black iron pipes, each shelf can hold 18 bottles, it keeps them on their sides and is pretty slick, my own design.

Good luck....

I didn't zoom in. My bad.
Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva is among my favorite! But Plantation XO 20 is my favorite.
I have several others on hand as well. Are you posting in the "What are you Sipping on" thread? I'm always seeking out more fantastic rum suggestions.

I want to install alarm system in my new house in Calgary. There are so many alarm systems available today, it's really hard to choose the one. I've already checked reviews and started thinking of wireless alarm system from Union Alarm. How do you feel about home alarm systems? All I need right now is just quality security system and peace of mind.
