Found a corked bottle in the liquor cabinet, anyone know anything about it?

I'm pretty sure it isn't foreign whiskey either.

If it's corked it's definitely bad.

Sorry about your luck.

Corked as in bad? What bourbons have you drank? If you're new, and interested, I suggest you dive in, and hold that Schenley until you have a barometer. It's certainly unique. Did you taste it yet?

I think he meant corked as in still sealed. Give the the new guy a break.

The Schenley name was used on both Canadian and American blends.

He was refering to the Canadian. Or at least he was in his other thread on this bottle.

Yes, he was refering to a Canadian.

However, apparently there was an Old Schenley (http://graphic-design.tjs-labs.com/show-picture?id=1154394181) bourbon around that same time.

Schenley was one of if not the largest U.S. distilled spirits company at one time but they never did all that much with the Schenley brand, which they slapped mostly on lower shelf offerings.

Well how about that, another bit of info I didn't know. Not that it is hard to come up with those. Since I can't edit my previous post I'll just stand corrected.

I'm not 100% sure of that, but I think it's correct. That wasn't unusual at one time. We all know the Seagram's brand was used on both American and Canadian products. Hiram Walker's Imprerial blend had both an American and Canadian version at one time, one produced in Walkerville, the other in Peoria.
