The whiskey collection at Canon in Seattle maybe (more than 4000 bottles)?
I have a feeling that tanstaafl2's collection beats any bar or store though :-)

Tried it, but my wife said it didn't make her feel any better about my cache. I posit the difference in volume has to be at least 100% to achieve the desired effect...
True rye and true bourbon wake delight like any great wine...dignify man as possessing a palate that responds to them and ennoble his soul as shimmering with the response.

I have a friend in Kentucky who's bunker dwarfs anything I've ever seen. Thousands of bottles. I can't post his picture but it did the trick when showing it to my wife.

My girlfriend is incredibly supportive of my "hobby", and while I'm on a year long freeze on further purchases, she's offered to replenish those bottles she's most adept at emptying. ( Maraschino & chartreuse, FYI)

I expect she sees the level of storage required as a fair trade off for getting to enjoy the drinks.

Happy to help. It is important that we all do what we can to support each other from those not blessed with our particular little obsession!

Some people are like a Slinky. They are not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs...

There are plenty of private collections that dwarf my little "store".  No matter how many you have somebody always has more!
