    Four bottles of Pappy Van Winkle. Next question.

    And yes, my Irish ass just wants to smack the shit outta Pimm 1 and Pimm 2 with their retarded answers. Vermouth, my ass....so, what exactly do you do with the extra 700 ml of vermouth once you run out of gin? Hipster bullshit abounds.

    I'm pretty sure 3 would be whiskey and one would be a genie bottle to wish for more whiskey.

    For a starter bar, this is a great suggestion. For a desert island, I'm stealing as many bottles of this as I can find: https://caskers.com/product/highland-park-1988-single-malt-scotch-whisky-signatory-bottling/ - or thinking bigger: https://caskers.com/product/highland-park-50-year-old-single-malt-scotch-whisky/. Cheers.

    If I'm allowed only 4 bottles on my desert island, you can be sure none of them will be vermouth or bitters.
