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.


I also have a collection of some watches, having been a watchmaker for years, a couple of the most contemporary examples being from later 2000s. Also have antiques collected many years ago, since growing up in the antique business.
Cameras.  Not really on purpose, but I have too many of them.  I have also collected tens of thousands of images that I've taken with them.  I have enough watches to wear a different one every day of the month, but they are mostly Seikos, Citizens, and the like, nothing extravagant.
The variety is fascinating. I feel men are more likely to be obsessional about collecting, perhaps that's why a high percentage of audiophiles are men. But it seems a percentage of men are collectors and of a number of different things. No whisky buffs yet, plenty of time
