    Show Us Your Stash -- Volume 3.0 (The Subliminal Verses)

    The pikesville is a weird pour, it is very minty and not much else...

    I have not tried one from the 60's, but the OO dusties would be my choice too! Nice collection you have there!

    I had a bottle of Overholt from '53....damn, was it magical. I also have a bottle from '49 that I am waiting to open (I think the birth of my first kid is a good reason,) and just grabbed a '57 today...Broadford, PA Overholt is incredible stuff.

    I got this bottle of Lot B 12 in a buyers raffle just before a dinner/ whiskey tasting with Julian this spring.

    Help a rookie out?

    Why are the older bottles so good? I thought the bourbon stopped aging once it hit glass. Not true? Is it a different process than today? I know our local bourbon hub Canon here in Seattle has some really old bottles and they charge an incredible amount for a dram. I always thought it was just exclusivity. Is it more?

    Thank you, very interesting and some valid points about the period of glut v. perceived scarcity.

    Prior to the distillerys becoming computer controlled Bourbon/Rye was mashed/distlled by long time distillery employees who in some cases were themselves the product of generations of distilling tradition. The human element created distinct personalities in the major House styles which are less apparent in the newer precisely controlled production whiskys.

    Were they better? No, just different, the old practical distillers did what worked and were very good at their jobs but arguably we are better off now with our greater understanding of the process. I was around back then and while I enjoyed those whiskys I don't feel slighted in the least with what we have available today.

    Please remember that I'm still a noob and frankly I just wanted to see if I could upload a pic. i won't even start to going into the details of just getting on the pc. I'm too old for all of this. Be gentle.
