[MENTION=13473583]Hookmaker[/MENTION] interesting cross section of wines... I've run down my stocks to something akin to the levels of [MENTION=1]Deano[/MENTION] for much the same reason... buy smart, hold, andd enjoy over a long period. BUT I am getting better at buying en primeur ... although when I leave it in bond I simply dont drink it!!!
I am a long way behind you in bottles though... and definitely in cigars... but I reckon my port collection is shaping up to be more than I can feasibly drink in a lifetime, but then i suspec my kids will mop up the rest as soon as they are old enough! lucky devils!

Ok an update.
Piss hard working on the wine cellar and WIH. Photo 1 shows the magnum bottle wine rack I just built this morning. Anyways, that rack completes the wine cellar and I have now removed dry wall in front of insolation on one side. The steel/glass wall with door in the center will be installed across the room just behind the magnum rack. Photo 2 with drawing on it shows the steel cross profiles(red) I need to attach before I can mount the vertical wooden boards (yellow brown) which will be the inside of the WIH. On top of those comes the Spanish cedar shelving [emoji41]
Coming along nicely here. Walls are done insulation and all and on go the boards, - and no, the wall boards are not Spanish cedar, that?d make the humidor way too smelly[emoji41]
Shame I have to wait feckin 3 weeks for the glass wall with door[emoji31]
