Nice collection Christian I love all the different looks of the bottles and on top of that the great liquid inside of them.
This is what started my Bourbon Fascination.....
This bottle of King Ranch(Bottled in Bond) was was made in the fall 1951 and bottled in the spring of 1964...... Stored in a box in a cool, dark basement and I opened it
in the fall of 2005.... WOW I have not had one like this yet, although some are close....like the Weller Centenial 12yo.
I'm told Old Farmers Distillary is where Abe Lincolns father worked and abe used to visit......
John Hansell (of Malt Advocate) just posted this on his blog in a posting titled "How many whiskies I have. And why.":
For those of you who are only interested in the numbers and don’t care about the “why” part, here they are:
Single malt scotch: 834
Straight whiskey (bourbon, rye, wheat): 286
Irish whiskey: 99
Blended scotch, blended malts, grain whisky: 46
Canadian whisky: 33
Japanese whisky: 15
Miscellaneous artisan (e.g. micro) distillery whisky: 13
If my math is correct, that’s 1,326 bottles. 466 of these bottles are open.
Way to go, John!

You forgot something
Most of the bottles were thrown in his lap so i do not see a big accomplishment here. What he does with them deserves him more credit.For the whiskies I don’t need–or no longer need–professionally, I use them at the whisky tastings I host. (Like the one I have in Philly the first week of March.) I also donate bottles to many charity events. And, I promise you that all of my local friends never go thirsty for whisky.
here y'all go, a pic of the last pour from ORVWOTR bottle No. 77.
Here's to all of its fans.
Peace, ... and Hippy Love.
Great photos guys! Keep 'em coming. I feel a need to head to the liquor store.
