    Shameless, and that's okay. I'll gladly volunteer to independently verify the quality though, if you need the help.

    Re: Show me your's and I will show you mine!!!!

    The reaction of many to the OPps original post is more than a little harsh in my opinion. I think a member here can choose to post in the vein of the OP's intent or move on if it is not an interest area. If there are no posters than the thread will die a natural death and that will be it. I get that there are people that are not part of the community that are fishing for info on a Pappy bottle or looking for a sale and those folks are going to be one time posters, especially after the response. But here the OP has 200+ posts under his belt and wants to show off his holy grail a bit. I clicked on the post because I wanted to see what some consider their ultimate.

    That 8 Star is even better in the plastic bottle.

    I have to assume that you are joking when you said this. Otherwise, you and I have very different opinions on what drives this and almost every other special interest forum on the Internet.

    The VOF/VVOF/VXOF bottles are hideously designed, in my opinion. That said, they were designed in the 50's, so we can't hold them to modern standards. Of course, many of my favorite bottles are ugly too. VWFRR, Hirsch 22 and Vintage 21 come to mind. On the other hand, BTAC, the E.H. Taylor bottles, Four Roses SmBLE, and PHC are quite well put together.

    Of course, the contents are what is special, so if you don't open it, then you just have the ugly bottle. Looks like you drank one and saved the ugly bottle, so you must think highly enough of it to keep the souvenir. Please, don't take my comment too harshly, though, as I am filled with nothing other than happiness and jealous rage that you have come into ownership of these prized bottles. These "whiskey porn" threads can be fun, but I like to prod people to open their bottles and give some tasting notes rather than just post a picture of a bottle they acquired.

    *sniff* Beautiful. If only you included a cheap writing utensil and a plastic wristwatch in the frame, this could rival Ansel Adams' best work.
