    Re: Pics of Old Taylor

    Oh yeah, did I mention that I picked up my first really dusty bottle? Thought it would fit well with these pics. The dates are Spring 1917 and Fall 1933, Full Quart, Bib from Dist #53 AMS, permit # Ky P-19.

    Wow, that brings back memories. Thanks for the pics. As teens, our favorite swimming hole was out back of there.

    Thanks Dave. You have to download the pic resizer to make it work correctly.
    I only had a few minutes to snap pics of Taylor, had an appointment at the Trace. I could have spent all day there, though. Lots of stuff to see and some great bourbon history as well.

    These pics are great.

    A friend of mine recently moved into Woodford Co and happened upon Old Taylor and Old Crow the other day. We went down to see it this week.

    They are both in sad shape. We wanted to look around some but were too chicken to do so. It would have been easy to do since the only thing stopping you is the rock wall up front. But we didn't fearing the wrath of our wives coming to bail us out of jail.

    It was sad though. You could tell when EH Taylor built it it was everything he wanted as far as being a tourist kind of place. It still has the fish ponds and the areas where one could sit and ponder life while sweet smell of sour mash filled the air.

    We both wondered why someone had not bought and restored it. Even if it were just the front and on back to the first rack-house. Costly I would suppose but a bummer to see the potential there and it just sit.

    I haven't been up that road in a while, but there were a lot of Beam trailers in the Old Crow lot every time I've been through there. It seems as if there's less Old Taylor every trip.

    Jeff that is one beautiful Bottle there and very Rare too! If it is like my old bottle of that type it says for Medical drinking only! Mine is a 1926 I think Dougherty's and on the Box it states for Medical Drinking Only, Why do I like that saying!
