Ever hide a bottle from yourself?

0 6

Silas started a discussion

Sometimes I stash away bottles in different hidy-holes. That way I don't look like I'm a Scotch fanatic or alcoholic to my non-scotch friends. The other day I bought a Talisker 18 and a Talisker 1993 Distillers Edition. I opened the 18 and have finally finished it off and searched for the DE. I hid it so well that I cannot find it!! I found the Dalmore and the Aberlour, but no Talisker. Am I the only guy that LOST a bottle? Why couldn't it have been the Black Bottle that's under the glass cabinet?

I haven't yet, although I may have to do that with my last bottle of Laphroaig 15. The temptation to open it may be too great.

Funny thread. I've hidden other things for safe keeping so well hat I've not been able to find them (think passport, keys etc) but not a bottle of whisky :)

I've never lost a bottle, but then I've not had to hide it either. Can a house be sooooo big that one cannot remember where they put a bottle of Scotch? Too funny.

@markjedi1 True enough! But, the added complication is that I had to pack 2 rooms for the carpet guys to come. Put all the boxes in the utility room. Must be 20 boxes! Could be in ONE of them. I planned on taking these boxes out a couple a day. Maybe I'll find it in a month or 2.
Then I'll enjoy it. It's gotta be here somewhere!

@Silas Today I finally found the missing bottle of Talisker Distiller's Edition. High in a closet in a plain white plastic bag along with a Talisker 18 that I didn't know I had. Wow! Had to open the DE. Great! Sort of tastes like a Highland Park 18 but better! Feels like a lucky day!

I had a chance to buy Highland Park 18 for $59 so I bought two bottles , I have drank one and hid the other for a rainy day
