    if your going with a screw top how about OGD BIB?

    Nice. OGB BiB and ORVW 10/107 or maybe BT are my top two choices at the moment.

    This brings up another question - new topic and should be anew thread - what are the best Bourbons with screw tops?

    good question -- personally, I would say Weller 12 is my favorite screw top bourbon in current production . . . but both the VSOF & OCPR from the BHC had screw caps and they were pretty damn good . . . of course Dickel #12, OWA & ORVW all have screw caps -- all good, although I don't like any of themas much as the Weller 12.

    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.

    I seriously doubt that there is any bottle of bourbon that won't fit in a wall. Studs are 16" on center. The bottle would have to be 14.5" wide not to fit between studs. Bottle thickness would be more of an issue. Standard studs are 3.5" wide. What does a standard bottle measure? I'd guess around 3".

    Why would I be talking about the bottle being able to fit the 16" between the studs? I of course was talking fitting the 3.5" front to back of wall space and an OF B-Day bourbon bottle is 5".

    I'm picturing the dry wall down at the bottom with a 3" semi circle bump out. Three generations of owners would be wondering what it was all about assuming it was a high tech green thingamajig in the wall....

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. You said the bottle was "super wide"... not thick.
