    Nice, but it's a shame they aren't dated.

    Very interesting how they were marketing Ancient Age as a light bourbon.

    Not a picture, but I remember an Ezra Brooks billboard in the background, from a scene in the movie The Sting.

    The Antique "Waterproof" ad seems to indicate that it was barrel strength. Was that the case?

    I don't think so. It seems to be saying you don't need to add water or ice. I believe the product that was around in the 70s and 80s was 80 proof.

    Okay. I took "undiluted pleasure" to mean something else entirely.
