Does anyone collect something else other than music.

 I guess all of us must be collectors at heart, both music and kit, but are there other collecting obsessions out there? Many people collect watches, cars, mountain bikes and so on.

I have started a small collection of good Scotch malt whisky. Always loved whisky, but never studied the range and quality available. It may be a bit easier for me, living in the UK, although most bottles seem to be available in the US, at comparable prices too. The only drawback is that I don't get to drink any of the good stuff, as the collection is something I intend to leave to my kids, who all have tastes above their pay grade. Whisky has always been collectable, but prices do seem to be on the up. It is staggering what bottles, particularly of the best distilleries and closed ones, can go for. Prices over £100,000 for one bottle, aren't unusual, with interest from all over the world.

 I like all whisky, but my current favourite is probably Caol Ila, a not too heavily peated  Islay distillery. Glad to say my consumption has remained very modest. Unfortunately, when we emerge from Covid 19, I think there are going to be a lot more problem drinkers.

 So what do you collect? If you are a whisky fan too, perhaps post your favourites and bottles worth collecting.


This thread is definitely worth following. It is so interesting to read about what people collect. I would have never guessed many of those things.

Keep them coming.
Knives, art, model aircraft and boats 
In addition to my earlier post, I think I should add golf shoes and silk ties. At least I will be fashionably dressed while I chase the little white ball.🤫
@tom6897  Since I retired from a big company where we dressed every day, I have about 100 ties I no longer wear if you are interested...mostly BB from the last 25 years or so...nothing too wild, I'm afraid.  

Ties were $2.50 when I started buying them in the 1960's; now they run about $100 up for normal ones...crazy!
