Two-hundred-fifty bottles of rum on the wall ... 250 bottles of rum.

And that's only part of Steve Remsberg's collection.

The New Orleans man has about 1,000 bottles of rum.

But only 250 are on display behind the bar in his den.

He has everything from 1920's Cuban Bacardi rum to a pre-World War II Egyptian rum.

He tells a local paper that he'll only open a bottle to drink if he has a duplicate.

The retired lawyer says he first developed a taste for tropical rum drinks during his college days.

Now he prefers his rum straight up or with a little water.
