View Full Version : Some finds and some possible finds

Well, an evening driving the most dilapidated and (seriously) dangerous liquor store strip in town has yielded the following: two bottles of Old Fitzgerald BIB (1993?), a 1.75L bottle of Cabin Still from 1988 (which would be S-W whiskey, I think?), and three 1L ER 101 bottled in Louisiana.
I've also turned up some stuff I may buy if I decide I have the coin (which I don't):
2 ORVW 10yr/107
ORVW 15yr/107
AAA 10-yr old 90 proof (I understand current bottlings are 86-proof, and I know the 10-star is 90, but these are 10-yo, unless I misread, and have a black label...couldn't find a date on these 1.75L plastics)
Baker's (older label-style)
a dozen or so Old Forester BIB in the dimpled bottles - both 750mL and 1.75L
15 or so of the special edition JB Black bottles (identical to the OGD 114 bottle) issued in (I think) 2003.
a 90-proof, 6-yo T.W. Samuel's Bourbon in a 1.75L plastic bottle (no date that I can find on it).

I realize some of the above are more special than others, and I will be buying what I can when I can while they're there, but there are just too many damn bottles...

ORVW 15yr/107

My suggestion would be to run don't walk and get that ORVW 15yr/107.
Especially if it is distilled in Lawrenceburg, as oppeosed to Frankfort,... could have S-W lineage.
Actually I think it does.

I believe other posts have indicated that the ORVW 15/107 is a SW product whereas the new bottlings of ORVW 10/107 or Buf. Trace. I agree, run and get that bottle of ORVW 15!

ALL ORVW 15/107, whether bottled at Lawrenceburg or Frankfort, contained Stitzel-Weller whiskey.

Well, there goes $45 more I don't have...

Thanks a lot. If I wind up drunk and naked on a street corner in this fair burg one day, I will mutter the name of this site and its inhabitants ad infinitum, and when someone finally hears my incoherent utterance and hunts you all down, you'll be sorry...

Seriously, thank you for the tip. I'm there tomorrow when the store opens.

$45 is a bargain.
