I'm new to the whole old bottles aka dusties, but have Ben reading a bit on them in various threads. What I don't want to do is pass on them and find out they are excellent bottles to pick up and hold onto for trading purposes,since there are wheaters I'd love to try but can't find.

The Old Crow BIB is a no-brainer. Very hard to come by. GET IT!

In fact depending on the age of the Crow, I'd probably be willing to trade you an old wheater for it. But you'd be better off keeping the OC for yourself.

There is a Dusty/Collectable board on this site.

if the OGD has Cleremont on the label, I'd pass as these are not dusty, unless you want to taste them and add to your mental inventory. You may really enjoy them.

I also have a theory that the black caps are current production, but have not had the time to verify that. If it has a gold cap it may be from the ND era. Best indicator is to check the barcode.

I'd pick up the Old Crow and the Old Forester, as OF is one of my favorite drinks.

None of the bottles have a tax seal, but state bottled in bond and then some us Govt stuff.
I'll try to get a picture up to give people a better idea.

Like I said, I'm new at this so maybe I'm mistaken

i got some black caps (including the fat neck handles) that had the ND upc number and definitely tasted like ND stuff.

forgot to add: the bottles with the black caps that had the ND upc code had the "new" labels. i wouldn't have even bothered looking at the upc except i'd never seen a "new" non-ND ogd 86 in a fat neck bottle. so i looked at the upc code, took a chance, drank it and :grin: i also got 200ml bottles and besides the upc code, there does not appear to be any difference in the bottles between the ND bourbon and the new bourbon. i assume that these "new" bottles were the last of the ND ogd that were bottled as ogd. by the way to be clear, the ND ogd i'm talking about is the 86 proofers. i've never seen a ND ogd bonded bourbon on my dusty hunts. i was told (by the owners) that they used to have some (and subsequently replaced by recent production) but someone came in and bought every single bottle. early bird gets the worm.
