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

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

    I have a few that to me are eye catching and unique. This year's Maker's Mark VIP bottle, Rock Hill Farms, Four Roses Small batch (Mariage), Old Forester Birthday Bourbon, and Willett'e Family Reserve. Joe

    I like the simple squat bottle like that found on the ORVW 10/107 and the Old Weller Antique. For a fancier design, I think the Four Roses Single Barrel is cool the way it starts round at the bottom and turns square up higher, and the way the wood cork housing goes down around the mouth is cool too.

    I like the ETL / Weller Cent. bottle displayed as my avatar.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I like WTRB and FR Single Barrel, especially the recessed corked stoppers!

    I like the BTAC bottles for proving form follows function by:
    A) Showing the color of the bourbon well.
    B) Serving as a filter, if poured slowly, when there's lots of char at the bottom in the last couple pours.
    C) Having a small diameter which exposes less surface area to oxygen.

    Maybe I'm too practical, but I like the square Bushmills bottles for ease of packing into a bar. For beauty I go for the FR SB.

    Tough question......but, I'll go with Saz Jr by a nose over WTKS.

    I agree. Purely in terms of shape, I like this short, squat form figure. Not sure why, but the square bottle seems simple and timeless.

    In terms of overall esthetics, I agree with some of the other comments here; including the Saz Jr. I also like the ER SB bottle.

    It's not bourbon, but this is my answer....
