    Recommend a Bourbon for in the wall

    My friend is a builder and is finishing a large expensive historical house renovation. After telling him the stories of people finding bottles of Bourbon in walls of old houses he loved the idea and decided to leave something for someone to find later.

    We want to put a bottle or two of Bourbon in the wall of this house. Planning on boxing it/them so they don't get broken when the wall is eventually torn out .

    What Bourbon would you put in the wall?

    ORVW 23yr and Hirsch Red Wax

    Grab something that will not rot (screw cap) and covers a couple key areas.

    I recomend you get an older bottle of OWA 10/107 and EWSB 2000

    You want something to represent 2009: I suggest Red Stag.

    OFBB 2009, FR Mariage 2009, or FR SB 2009.... something with the current year on it.

    I agree with the idea of safeguarding against rot and so a screwtop sounds like a good idea to me. In that case I'd put an ORVW 10/107 and either a Ritt BiB or OWA 7/107.

    Ditto. Maybe something that represents today that won't be around tomorrow. I fear that may leave Red Stag out, I've got the feeling that's going to be around for a long time.

    hell, If I left a great bourbon in the wall, it would be some future, flavored vodka drinker that found it.

    I agree it needs to have the date on the bottle. I don't think the OF B-Day bourbon would fit the between wall specifications as it's a super wide bottle. How about Wathen's? It's dated right? Or WTKS? It should fit within the walls.
