View Full Version : Bourbon science and an old bottle
Toward Designer Bourbon Whiskeys With Custom-tailored Aromas
Who can ID the old bottle in the photo?
Cooked apple - I like that! I don't think I've ever heard that one, but I know what they mean. Apple dumpling, with a sugary crust, and with nuts, cinnamon and sugar in the center. Hot from the oven.
I have definitely tasted that in some bourbons.
I don't think it's in the list of descriptors (http://www.straightbourbon.com/tasting.html) we have online, although the individual components are. But I think the apple in the list is more fresh apple rather than cooked apple.

"Flecken"? "Pickenny"?old bourbon whiskey?
Picken & Co. ?
I used a magnifying glass but the pixels are still hazy.
Yes, Picken & Company "Copper Distilled Pure Old Bourbon Whiskey" appears to have been sold as a medical product. "Weeks & Potter" on the bottle.
How they come up with that out of all of the bourbon bottles to pick....odd choice.
"Weeks & Potter was a Boston proprietary medicine concern, founded in 1852 and operating well into the 20th century. They produced many patent & proprietary medicines including the Sanford's Radical Cure and several Cuticura products including the famous Cuticura System of Curing Constitutional Humors (Baldwin 1973; Fike 1987)."
