    My first dusty!

    Wish me joy. I went to a section of town even I felt uncomfortable in and found what I believe is my first genuine dusty. ND OGD, DSP KY-14, made in Frankfort. Am I wrong? (Please tell me I'm not wrong...) to my eyes it looks like the bottle date is 91. All of the other OGD was made in Clermont at a different DSP and had the regular size cap and bottle dates in the last year.



    I brought it covetously up to the register and the nice Indian lady had difficulty reading the price because of the grime. "Oh sir, it is very dusty..." she said and got a feather duster and cleaned it off. I said "Yeah...I know..." with a huge grin that obviously confused her.

    No, it's a liter! Don't know when I'll open it - when I have 2 or 3 others, probably.

    I had one of those once!
    To be honest, I don't remember what its final disposition was, but I certainly don't remember regretting it! -- and, I surely remember some spectacular older/ND OGD BIBs! It's likely to be an epiphiniacal (if that's a word) whiskey.
    (You'll NEVER have two or three other, okay? Pleeeeaaaase, promise me it won't be a shelf queen -- I just HATE IT when that happens! 'Whiskey's for drinkin'', as someone here once said/wrote...)

    Well done, Grasshopper. May this be but the first step in a long and wonderful journey.

    Re: My first dusty!

    What is the difference between this and the 20+ bottles of the OGD100 BIB at a local liquor store I frequent?

    I have never had this type and wondering as I saw it. They had 750ml up to 1.75's. Thanks for the help on what to read on the bottle to check the differences.

    Haha - you make an excellent point. I had thought of saving it for when I become a grandfather the first time (probably about 10 years from now) but I doubt it'll last that long.

    Search for "ND OGD" and read about DSP numbers. The giveaway, when you look across the room at the bourbon section of the store, is the wide mouth neck and uber-large cap.
