    Question about some old bottles I found

    Stopped at an old liquor store and they had three interesting things and I wanted to know what you thought.

    1. 1.75 of Rebel Yell 90 proof with tax stamp for $15.
    2. 750 of Old Taylor 86 proof 6 year made in Frankfort for $8.
    3. 750 of Old Crow 90 proof made in Frankfort for $6.

    The owner said all were there when he bought the store 22 years ago.

    They have a ton of them so I was wondering if I should get more. Haven't tried them yet because they frown on me drinking at work but will try tonight.

    All good pickups! The Crow is the only one that might be ify, depending on how old that bottle is.

    Re: Question about some old bottles I found

    Couldn't wait until the evening.

    The Old Crow is 1988, 4 years old with 86259 24547 upc.

    The Old Taylor is 1988 with upc 86259 25065.

    The Rebel Yell is 1983 with upc 88508 25057. None of the UPCs have the extra numbers on each side.

    Should I go get some more?

    I should add that they do taste good. It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

    Yes on these two. The OC is just so so... the OT is good, the 86 proof is the best of the 88 OT. THe Rebel yell from 83 is soft, but very fun to drink. Buy them all

    Went back and got the Old Taylor. They also had two bottles of Old Taylor 80 proof with 1980 on the bottom so I got those also.

    88508 is the UPC for Stitzel-Weller. Just saying.

    Buy those Rebel Yell you won't regret it.
