Thread: OldHickory

  1. #1

    OldHickory

    Hello! I was recently cleaning out my grandfathers garage when I can across a couple of beauties. First find was an unopened bottle of Old Hickory bourbon still in its box. The box has 1965 written on the back. The other was an unopened bottle of whiskey. I'll post pictures below. Does anyone know what these are worth or if they're safe to consume?

    I do not recommend consuming the Old Hickory, I'll send you my address for my free disposal services.

    In all seriousness they look well sealed and should be perfectly fine to consume. The Old Hickory is probably very good bourbon. The other is probably decent blended whiskey, but the Hickory is definitely a find. Enjoy it!

    Please excuse my ignorance and this may not be the place to ask but...

    What the difference between bourbon and whiskey? What makes whiskey "blended"? I personally have been drinking Jack Daniels for years, so I'm not into what makes a good liquor a GOOD LIQUOR, if you get what I'm saying.

    I agree with Christian. The Old Hickory that I have had was pretty good. You should enjoy drinking it. For some terrific additional info on the brand, and distillery that made it, check out the History section and Dave Ziegler's threads on Kinsey and Continental.

    I don't know much about the Fleischmann's, however.

    They are safe to drink. Whiskey doesn't spoil.

    Is the Old Hickory something best drank by itself? I'm assuming it's more of a "on the rocks" drink.

    Most Whiskey/Whisky/Bourbon purists like most of us prefer neat. If you like watered down whiskey like Jack Daniel's then you should probably use ice.

    Drink it however you like. I would recommend that you drink it with friends.

    Enjoy your find!

    And as an aside, that's got to be the worst, most tripped out, LSD flashback lookin' bourbon packaging I've ever seen. What were they thinking their target demographic was with that box?

    Maybe they were going after the church-goer/liquor drinking demographic with the stained glass looking bird...
