First post here.. I have been getting into collecting dusties, though haven't chanced on too many bourbons. Had found an old Walker's Deluxe lic. plate decanter 8 yr from the 70's and the "I Dream of Jeannie" Beam's Choice, both of which were partly consumed when I got them but still tasty. One quart of JB white label has been my bourbon collection.. until today.
These were from a gentleman who had a liquor store from the 60's-80's... tired of moving his bottles around when he moved. A mixture of pint and half-pint (or 375 and 200ML, depending on vintage.)
OGD 86 x2
OGD BIB pint (68/74)
Old Taylor 86 x2
Old Taylor BIB x6 (2 big, 4 small, varying vintages bottled '74-83)
Old Crow x7
Old Charter x3
Wild Turkey 101 x2
WI Weller Cabin Still
Walker's Deluxe 8yr x6
IW Harper x3 (early 80's I think)
Yellowstone 6yr x5 (70's?)
Hill & Hill x2
Jim Beam x5 (metric/UPC)
"Antique" 6yr (Frankfort KY)
Ezra Brooks Gold Label
Ancient Age x3
Ten High x7
I either have to get rid of some of these, or kiss my liver goodbye!
I couldn't believe my luck when I started going through the stuff. He really didn't know what he had, and there were over 200 bottles available, but mostly liqueurs, some Tequila, and blended Am/Canadian/etc.
Also some blended Scotches, i.e. Pinch 12yr, Dewars White, Old Bushmills, Chivas 12, White Horse, Cluny, Johnny red/blk...
One of the pics did not turn out, but some of the most interesting bottles for you guys are visible here.
I started out getting into this with some minibottles.. Still have some of those, including a 1947 BIB Rittenhouse Rye that I am dying to try when I have the right time.. should probably not wait too long since there is already some evaporation!
I have been reading the forums for awhile, and have some idea of what I have... from what I understand I should be most excited about the Old Taylor, OGD, maybe Cabin Still. Thoughts?
