    Forget the liquid for a moment - What's your favorite bottle shape?

    It may sound like a stupid question, but I have a very good reason. Please post pics of your favorite bottle shape.

    Thanks

    Judging just on shape? I like Buffalo Trace. But if we include label design I really dig Baby saz. I like the label and I like the fact that it is painted on and not paper.

    When I was drinking El Tesoro tequila the other day, I was admiring its painted label and wondering why more bourbon bottles didn't use that technique. I always liked WT RR 101's painted label.

    Leaving bourbon behind for a moment, I think the Captain Morgan Private Stock bottle is pretty cool staying in price ranges, but out of everything, the coolest bottle I have seen is the Hennessy Ellipse bottle, and I'll be damned if I ever get a sip of that stuff.

    Raymond Loewy Old Forester Decanter

    I like the 1955 Raymond Loewy Old Forester Decanter.

    I would totally keep the BTAC bottles for refilling and keeping on the sideboard if they didn't have the impossible to remove painted label.

    You and I agree on something again. Sazerac bottles are just absolutely perfect.

    I am fond of the EC 12 bottle. My wife has taken to making her own spiced rum in one of my empties.

    My favorite basic bottle shape is the squat bottle like the Van Winkle 10yr 107 comes in.
