But, the small writing on the bottom says "Distilled for and bottled by Stitzel-Weller". So it was made somewhere else and there is no other info on the label. So now I'm guessing a well brand SW marketed.

    Also says "The sour mash Bourbon in this bottle was made in the famous old Kentucky distilling country"

    Anyone know anything about this bottle?
    Steve I think you got took on this one, sorry to say.

    Yeah - I did a long search and found out what it is. Well, we can call it a learning experience, right up there with the '70s case of Old Charter 7 yr I bought. A spoonful of WTKS has more character and taste than that whole case did. Taught me about anise finish though.

    If all you drank was good whiskey how would you know how good they really were?

    I picked up a couple birds today. 2 WTRB 97s, plus I left one on the shelf and one in the back room.

    Also had to pass up a couple IW Harper 15s and a Harper, bicentennial edition.

    hahaha. I hope so. That's why I collected 07, 08, and 09 now. I have only tried 09 so far. Can't wait to try next the 08 then the 07 - going potentially from good, to better, then for some the best.

    Reminds me of when i first started buying higher shelf bourbons and i came across an 'Old Stagg' from 1970s thinking it was a vintage version of the current BTAC Stagg. Was chuffed with my purchase until i did some post research on this site and learnt a valuable lesson...

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.
