    I would recommend donating it to the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History in Bardstown, KY. Often bottles of that age have had their flavor deteriorate to the point of non-drinkability, and as such only have value as a collection piece.

    Many may remember the 8yr Kentucky Tavern BIB (d-1936;b-1944) I brought to the Gazebo a few years ago. Lot of fusel oils...Old Bathroom Cleaner...but Chuck Cowdery and many others seemed to enjoy it.

    I remember Old Kentucky Tavern BiB (1949/1955) as being very good bourbon. I brought it to the Gazebo a couple years ago. Everyone seemed to like it. The empty glass decanter was donated to the Getz and occupies a place in one of their display cabinets today.
