Tear drop bottle finished in Cognac cask with Noe and Royers name on it and in a fancy case. I believe it had a copyright date of 1999 on the bottle tag. The prior forum posts on this label are very old and not super informative.

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what this is exactly?

I saw that yesterday on this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erX8QdUZE-Y).

Skip to about 6:23 for some info.

I've got a bottle bunkered. It's 18 yo Beam bourbon finished in cognac casks. Same process as the recent PHC release. In fact cognac casks are from the same source for both.

not duty free, just about the highest price bourbon ever released at it's time. Still a few on the shelf around here.

Didn't they do a series? My recollection is there was a port finished as well.

A 20 year old port finish borttled at 86 proof.

Tasting notes are included in American Still Life.

I worked my way through both bottles. I like the second release (Port Wood) better. I thought it was a very nice whiskey. A whiskey that was way ahead of its time.

Saw one on a shelf last year. Passed it up. Too rich for my blood.

How rich are we talking? Is it as bad as Charbay's 300-400 dollar flop?

No, I think it was in the neighborhood of $150-$200.

I have one of each here, but haven't gotten to them yet. They are signed by Fred Noe, might open them with him one day.
