    Old Dispensary Brand XXXX Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey BIB?

    Purchased a bottle of "Old Dispensary Brand XXXX Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey BIB" today. It has no UPC so it puts it at least in the early 1980s. It does have DSP-KY-12 on it. I cannot find anything about it by Googling. Has anyone heard of it and/or know anything about it?

    Thanks,

    Would that have been Barton/Tom Moore distillery back then?

    I doubt it's that long ago. What size is the bottle? Does it have a state tax stamp? Does it have a federal tax strip across the top? Does it have a tamper-resistant cap?

    It's 1 liter. It does not have a tamper resistant top or UPC code but does have a paper seal over the top. It does say distilled at Barton Distilling Company in Bardstown, KY.

    I would guess late '80s, then. Can't help with the whiskey, though. Is it aged at all? Does it have any color?

    It is darker than the J.W. Corn I have.

    Re: Old Dispensary Brand XXXX Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey BIB?

    I'm thinking that liter sized bottles were not used in the US before the late `70s. I believe that anything labeled "bottled in bond" has to be at least four years old. I know corn whiskey is not aged in new charred oak barrels. I'm not sure if it is aged in un-charred barrels, used cooperage, or either?

    Does anyone know when Barton quit making corn whiskey?
