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.

@richopp, regarding ties. That’s a pretty good guess on my total as well. I am a little shocked now that I don’t wear them why I thought needed so many. Clearly a first world problem. I’m thinking of paying forward to the local career center for young men and less fortunate to use for interviews and hopefully business attire. I have suits and topcoats that I will not be wearing too. It’s the right thing to do.🍀🙂 Unfortunately dressing for success is a lost art in our ever increasing service oriented and casual culture. I think people would feel and be more productive if they upgraded their wardrobe and took a little more stock in appearance. But then again, I’m “old school”.
Custom knives, books and art 
@musicfan. Thanks for the tip. I will take care of that right away.
@jrosemd. I a Saab fan, but never more than 2 at a time. Cars take up a lot of room. Original Avantis appeal too, but I never owned one.
