The 87 plaque is off a bleacher end at the Big House, Michigan Stadium where we take the bus for tailgates and games in the fall. I have the upper door glued and clamped and should be ready to stain and install tomorrow

Looks like we have similar tastes in spirits!

Knob Creek is one of my favorite bourbons! It is really rich and tasty. It has earned a permanent place in my cabinet as the resident 100 proof whiskey (I see now they have a special reserve 120 proof - cask strength! woohoo! ).

I'm not a big fan of Buffalo Trace. It's okay, but it's kind of like drinking light beer in my opinion. It just doesn't have much body or depth. Kind of boring. I think my favorite bourbon may be Elijah Craig 12 year old. It's a fantastic bourbon, and reasonably priced considering it's age at around the same price as Knob Creek.

The cabinet is looking great by the way! It's kind of hard to see from your pictures what is going on in there though - I'll be interested to see some bottles in there to see how it is set up. How did you accommodate having differently sized and shaped bottles?

Re: Liquor Cabinet

Good to know, thanks for the review. We have a couple of single malt drinkers on the bus and a Jack fan but everyone loves their bourbons.
As for the cabinet, I built the cabinet on several levels so that you can remove bottles without interfering with other bottles, square bottles like Evan Williams and Jack are on flat "shelves" with rubber bar rail spill mats to keep the bottles from rattling as we drive down the road. For round bottles I made plexiglass cut out panels of 3" and 3 1/4" cirles and sanded one side to give it that frosted look. The lower half is a wine rack for my wife and her friends 3 1/2" squares slightly angled to keep the bottles from sliding out but still keeping thecork wet. I'll load it up and take a pic to give you an idea

I'm a huge fan of single malt Scotch. Don't even get me started!
