OT- What Liquors do you stash in addition to PM?

chesterbchesterb Posts: 734 ✭✭✭✭✭

I'm expanding my stash and think a little liquor would be a good compliment to my PMs.

This seems like a good crowd to address the question of what liquor do you stash?

Thanks in advance!!

    I don’t necessarily stash liquor, but I’ve been known to enjoy a bourbon while thumbing through my coins and PMs. Of all the different ones I’ve had, cheap and expensive....my favorite is Bulleit.

    What does your South Park character drink?

    Waiting for the swell in PM's and surf.

    Well, Randy's favorite indulgence is Tegridy weed but he's been known to chug a beer or six.

    I'd think higher proof the better...I stashed some bottles myself awhile back. Not sure why...made more sense than toilet paper I guess. o:)

    Pendleton 1910
    Four Roses
    Basil Hayden
    Buffalo Trace
    Nothing too spendy, just good drinking.
    I we tend to keep quite a few different bottles in storage. The old fuel oil storage room in my basement makes for a great wine room with shelves in back for my bottles. Its an all brick foundation and has a great look to it. The wine room is brick on three sides with a door leading out. It was creepy as hell at first before we remodeled.

    I don’t drink liquor. But I do drink two Bud Lights every night. However, I buy bottles of Seagrams 7 whiskey when I get a couple dollars off with a digital coupon. For long term storage, I always get the glass bottles instead of the plastic bottles.

    I stash this liquor as a prep for barter or medicinal purposes during any future tough economic times.

    I would recommend a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle.....big investment, but always in demand. Cheers, RickO

  • Irish whiskey! Red Breast 12 is my favorite, but anything Red Breast, Bushmills, Middleton, Dingle, Teeling, etc. will do.

    Excellent transaction with: ffcoins, Proofmorgan, fivecents, MorganMan94

    Ive tried it a number of times. Its great, but I would rather have a glass when its someone else's bottle.

  • johnny9434johnny9434 Posts: 22,476 ✭✭✭✭✭

    1) Makers Mark
    2) Hennessy Cognac
    3) Wild Turkey bourbon

  • chesterbchesterb Posts: 734 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Thanks for the replies. I guess there are three ways to look at the question:

    • Investment purposes - example Pappy Van Winkle if you can get it for a decent price
    • Prepper purposes - I understand a higher ABV like 60% is needed for medicinal and all-around disinfectant purposes
    • and for Drinking

    Again, thanks everyone for the replies!

    I like Kentucky Bourbon and Caribbean Rum. Good values in Maker's Mark, Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, and Cruzan, Mt. Gay, and Barbancourt.

  • rickoricko Posts: 77,889 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @Baley .... I concur on the Caribbean rum... Mount Gay is excellent... also, if you can find it...Old Brigand. I lived and worked in Barbados for 3 1/2 years...had lots of rum. Cheers, RickO

    Woodford is my current favorite

  • BigJohnDBigJohnD Posts: 302 ✭✭

    I get Jefferson's bourbon. Likely a gimmick, but interesting, fun, and different. Occasionally, when something crazy happens, I bust a bottle out with the neighbors. I never regret the investment.

    Went cheap this weekend, Jim Beam Peach. Its sweet and smooth. Not sure how this will end. Will provide notes on the hangover.

  • bestmrbestmr Posts: 1,753 ✭✭✭

    Crown Royal XR. I don’t drink very often, and it even less, so a bottle lasts me a long time.

    Positive dealing with oilstates2003, rkfish, Scrapman1077, Weather11am, Guitarwes, Twosides2acoin, Hendrixkat, Sevensteps, CarlWohlforth, DLBack, zug, wildjag, tetradrachm, tydye, NotSure, AgBlox, Seemyauction, Stopmotion, Zubie, Fivecents, Musky1011, Bstat1020, Gsa1fan several times, and Mkman123 LOTS of times

    Vodka is my go to, nothing fancy, the New Amsterdam brand is probably the best cheap vodka around. Very clean, no hangover stuff.

    For the bar we have all kinds of stuff in there. Woodford, Cielo tequila, some nice rum, VO Gold, etc etc.

    Costco here has it in stock all the time. Although I tend buy from an independently owned booze shop.

    I have a stocked wet bar for SHTF. I dont drink, but I can get the whole neighborhood drunk. Lots of bottles Bacardi 151.. Go big or go home.

    I don't spend my money on liquor, I buy coins! I did tell my wife if the world falls apart I am going to become a modern day moonshiner! Liquor is gold for the people who need it!

    We were heading into the great recession in the early spring of 2008 and I wanted to be out in front rather than playing catch-up. So I topped off my metals and long term storage preps with what seemed logical at the time: A case of Jack Daniels. Note the date printed on the box: 02-11-08. And like any obsessive collector, the case is sealed and the receipt taped to the top :D

    Fast forward to a couple of years back, when I had more metals and more money than brains, when I added:

    Two Lagavulin Distillers Edition 2016
    A Macallan 18 1997
    A Balvenie 21 portwood

    We are like children who look at print and see a serpent in the last letter but one, and a sword in the last.

    Forgive my ignorance but does a sealed case of Jack Daniels like that appreciate over time? Seems JD is rather ubiquitous so the date doesn't matter.

    I know it was purchased for other reasons but just curious on appreciation of it.

    Technically no, probably not. But I think HA sold a half-case recently that was vintage in some capacity and they brought more than I would have expected. How many 12+ year old unopened cases are out there? Not that they are for sale.

    The funny thing is that I don't drink scotch. I'm a beer guy. :)

    Your responses have been great! :) I'm getting all sorts of ideas (even ice cubes) just not about PM! :D

    I've been keeping a list and researching all of these so I can add to my "stash". Thank you!

  • rickoricko Posts: 77,889 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I am a wine guy anymore, Cabernet Sauvignon is my preference.... Though in the past, when I traveled to England for business...I did buy a bottle of Macallan 25 year old.... It was excellent... Though I did not drink much of it, my friends really enjoyed it. Cheers, RickO

    I don't know. It's long-term storage. Like the scotch, I probably won't ever drink it.
