    Re: Made and Bottled in Kentucky....

    One other thing that I remembered to post here...

    The Getz has a very extensive collection of Bourbon History...We both know that...You could spend a very, very, long time and ya still would not get to see and read everything ...

    I asked this question, at the Getz, a couple of weeks ago...What is the most valuable or the most treasured item, or items, in the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History?

    The answer...There is a collection of very old historcal books, with some of the earliest records of bourbon distilling in Kentucky...One of the books dates back to to late 1700's ...

    That may well be , and I can understand why one would see it that way. Still, I'll never forget when Jo showed me that wood carved picture of Early Times and said it was Priceless, Priceless!

    I'll second Chuck's Video. I bought it several months back and have watched it several times. Not only great information, but really nice scenery as well.

    I was also knocked out by the old bottle collection, Bettye Jo. They have 19th century bottles with original contents which exhibit all hues, one (the whiskey) an interesting green-type colour! Love those old bottles, they bring all that history to life..

    One more thing...but this has nothing to do with bourbon...It's about the Hisotry Museum in the back of the Getz...Yes, there is another small museum in the back of the Getz...

    There is a pictue of Jesse James in his casket (gave me the willies just ta look at it) and (supposedly a hat he lost in a escape)...Word has it that Frank and Jesse hid out a lot in Samules Ky...(not far from Bardstown)...and they shot at, many a man, in their running days around Nelson County...

    The Talbot Tavern (before it burned) used to show folks some holes in the wall upstairs...they claim they were put there by Jesse James...

    Or if you're too impatient to go that route, just click here to go directly to the page where you can order this excellent video.

    I may never make it to bourbon country in Kentucky, but I feel as though I've already seen the best it has to offer.

    Yours truly,

    Thanks very much, everybody, for all the great info.

    So much great Bourbon out there... so little time (and liver).

    Yes, it just has to be at least 100 proof.
