    First i'd like to address your selection of special occasion bottles (hennessy, patron, grey goose and remy). It all depends on the special occasion you are celebrating..

    Special occasion bottles are totally different from collector item bottles. Start by asking yourself what special occasion you are saving them for... an example would be if you are saving a bottle for someones 21st birthday than a cheap bottle of vodka would do. If its for Halloween then maybe a bottle of Crystal Head Vodka is more appropriate. Also, if you are saving for Christmas or something maybe a holiday nog would be best.

    As far as collector items... look for unique shaped bottles. Unless you are trying to make money by selling it later there is no point of keeping bottles.

    Champagne doesn't work on price. No matter what you are told. An example would be Dom or Cristal. Those champagnes are actually pretty terrible as far as any Connoisseur will tell you. They are expensive because they are made popular by american culture. Go to Europe and see if you can even find a good bottle of champagne named Cristal. Not going to happen.

    Alcohol is based on what you like. What is good to you may not be good to someone else. Its supposed to be a fun, good time type of drink so whatever you like is what you should get.

    Hope that helps

    One of the most revered types of liquors is single malt scotch. All men who drink scotch will be like O_O.

    My favourite is McAllan 18 yo sherry oak. Its like.. pure happiness. Its a little over 100$ us. You can get the 12 year for around 60$ a bottle.

    As for champagnes? I don't know. Scotch is better than any champagnes.

    Rum would work, it's often used to flavour chocolate truffles, but I'd dilute it in syrup or the taste could be a bit overwhelming. Orange goes very well with chocolate so you could try an orange liqueur like Curacao or Cointreau. Personally I would make a syrup with fresh orange juice and water (half & half), and sugar, of course, and add the liqueur before brushing it on the cake. Coffee complements chocolate well too, so Tia Maria (coffee liqueur) in some strong black coffee could be used in the same way. Enjoy!
