    Strange bourbons!

    When visting a friend today, I saw two strange bourbons in his cabinet. He has bought them in Spain or Bulgaria and they are probably bottled in Europe. Just wanted to post some pictures of them, and maybe someone knows which distillery they come from?

    Went to the website. For Old Virginia 6yo. it states:
    Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, distilled from the best varieties of grain, mainly corn...

    There is something fishy looking about that Dollar Fever bottle. I could be wrong.

    That Dollar Fever label is a riot. Lots of irony going on there!

    Next time I get a hangover I'll just tell my wife I've got a touch of the dollar fever.

    Cheers!

    Re: Strange bourbons!

    Well, they are claiming heritage from EC on the Dollar Fever... It has also been around for a good deal of time... at least back to 2002

    In the later part of the XVIII Century, a fortunate carelessness from Reverend Elijah Craig made him store a large quantity of Whisky in charred barrels, only to find out years later that the Wisky's flavor had changed to a delicious, gently sweet, mellow wooded flavor that it never had before. The precious liquid was named after the Country from where it was discovered: Bourbon.

    Following preciseli Elijah Craig's traditional formula, we have made possible "DOLLAR FEVER". Proportionally mixing barley, rye, wheat and corn, and a slow cooking process with Kentucky's clear spring water, results in a bourbon that delights the most demanding palates.

    TAVASA, as exclusive importer and distributor of "DOLLAR FEVER", has the pleasure to present it to your delight and enjoyment. JUST TRY IT! It won't failto you.

    The EC blurb states it's a four-grain whiskey. Pretty unlikely. The bottle looks like an EWSB duplicate. If Heaven Hill didn't make this whiskey, then who?
