    for all that simple harsh wild west peacocking, the bulleit bottle is surpassed by the simple generic gotham elegance of the those tall BTAC bottles...stagg, handy, eagle...yep, them bottles!

    I like the old-school look of the long-neck bottles of Dickel No. 12 and Baby Saz. I actually find these easier to pour without spilling as well.

    Of the bottles currently available the best looking ones are the BTAC bottles, the tall Van Winkle bottles (PVW, VWSR12, VWFRR) but the nicest looking bottle I've ever seen was the Diamond Decanter from Old Fitzgerald. There is a picture of it in this thread, post #1, second bottle from the right.

    That's why I (unlike some others here) have never liked the OFBB bottle. (The liquid inside is something else.) Too fussy and difficult to handle. And damn hard to fit into a brown paper bag or take a pull right from the bottle when a glass isn't readily available...
