Thirsty Thursday – Collectors Collecting

Thirsty Thursday is a featured segment where Whisky Suggest CEO Sean answers user questions, provides updates on the app and website, and shares his general musings on the whiskey world at large. Read last week’s Thirsty Thursday post here.

Have a Collection?

This week, my Whisky Suggest mind has been completely focused on collections. As my family and I are in the process of selling our house and preparing to move this summer, I had to box up my albeit limited collection. Apparently dozens of bottles of scotch and bourbon sitting out doesn’t sell homes; who knew?!

But while thinking about my collection IRL, I naturally shifted to my digital collection in the Whisky Suggest app. The collection feature has always been one of my favorites since I started using the app. As important as tracking my ratings is, I do enjoying seeing what I have in stock at a glance.

What do you all think about the collections feature? Are there other things you would like to see here? Let us know in the comments below or shoot as a note at

Grow your Collection

Looking to add some new prized bottles to your collection? Of course you are! If you are looking for something unique that you can’t find at your local bottle shop, check out our partners at Hard to Find Whisky.

Specializing in unique bottlings of special release single malt scotches, but offering literally hundreds of bottles of all types, Hard to Find Whisky ships to locations all over the globe. I was poking around the store a little bit, and they offer more different New York distilled whiskeys than I can currently find living in the New York City area! They really do have an impressive selection.

If you order today, they are giving away free swag with you order over 50 (~$70 USD) as part of their Father’s Day promotion. So help your dad grow his collection, and maybe pick up something for yourself while you are there.

Now That’s What I Call a Collection!

Since I own an app now and have access to all the data, my curiosity got the better of me. Again, while I am proud of my own little collection I have amassed during the year of the pandemic, I am well aware of its modesty both in quantity and quality.

That did make me wonder; which member of the Whisky Suggest community was hoarding the most bottles in their stash. Respecting the privacy of the true top user whose profile is set to private and has 733 bottles to their name, user Tangrisnir claims the prize with 732 bottles. Where do you even keep that many whiskeys?!

For context, the average collection size of all users (excluding those with 0 bottles added to their collection) is roughly 11 whiskeys.

Think you have more bottles than Tangrisnir sitting around at home? Start adding them to your collection in the app and claim that top spot!
