    Old Bourbons I found in my dad's bar

    Any rare finds here? I know they aren't the highest "quality" Bourbons. Only one that is opened is the old grand dad. 20140401_144553.jpg

    My mistake. The rebel yell is also opened.

    "Any rare finds here?".

    All of them! Give some taste notes friend, there is a special thread for this now called Dusty Tasting Notes.

    Yes, that's a very good selection, the vintage Heaven Hill 90 proof is just a step below the BIBs, the Grand Dad is ND and the Rebel Yell contains Stitzel-Weller distillate. The Beam I can't tell much about, guessing it contains Beam's Choice, I'm not familiar with the Southern Manor but all appear to be solid choices, your Dad had good tastes.

    Rebel Yell is likely Stitzel. That's good.

    Old Grand-Dad is likely National. That's good.

    Wild Turkey is an age-stated 8-year-old. That's good.

    Southern Manor was a Southern Comfort knock-off. Don't drink it. Liqueurs, unlike straight spirits, can go bad over time, and it probably wasn't much good to begin with.

    Heaven Hill. Probably okay, but nothing special.

    The Beam might be good but ceramic containers are always dicey.

    I'd second drink them all but the SM. Chuck beat me to it. You can't pay me enough to drink that stuff!

    Couldn't pay me enough either but I had a 24 year old blonde assistant who could talk me into damn near anything.

    The only thing I'd do with that Turkey is drink it....
