    Dusty Score or Bad Bottle

    I was checking out some of the smaller liquor stores in the area and I came across an older bottle (short and stout, plastic screw-top) of Eagle Rare 10/101. It was right in front of the newer bottles (wine style, cork).

    Was this a dusty score or just a less fancy bottling of the same whiskey?

    Doesn't anyone use the search function anymore?

    I couldn't count the number of threads that pertain to Eagle Rare. Seems like someone just brought it up the other day???

    There are thousands of awesome discussions that have taken place here on SB. Newbies should try reading a few of them. I am not just trying to be a dick. Really! There are lots of great threads here to read and research, before just blerting something out. Have some decorum.

    Just so you won't think I'm a complete jerk...a quick search of Eagle Rare turned up 722 posts.

    Some very good juice there, Squash. If you get a chance to go back, definitely do, and pick it up. That would be considered a fine dusty to have. Also, where there's one dusty, there's usually more. Maybe some BHC's, WT12's, or OFBIB's. Ah, my heart flutters just to think about it.

    I did grab it. Thanks guys.

    Is the whiskey in the bottle different than the new version?

    Just so mozilla doesn't sound like a lone voice, I have to respond to this. It's one thing to be ignorant of the search function; it's another to know about it but not be bothered to spend the time using it.

    I can't imagine that leave a message and waiting for a reply would be quicker than searching. I can, however, imagine that leaving a message and waiting for a reply would consume less of my time while consuming more of the time of others.
