Here is thread where I hope to get SB members to post the details found on their dusty (paper label) OWA bottles, in an effort to find correlations in the numbering conventions that may help us to accurately date these gems, and also just for the fun of documenting the history of the bottlings of this fine whiskey.
When posting the details, please try to give as much info as you can, including things like:
-Size of the bottle.
-From Louisville or Frankfort?
-Does it have the "No._____" field on the upper left of the label, and what are the hand-written numbers (or is the field left blank)?
-What is the raised 2-digit number in the glass on the bottom? Sometimes it's VERY faint, or not legible or can't even be found.
-Are there any laser codes on the back or sides of the bottle? Sometimes there are, and sometimes they can't be found or are under the back label. Sometimes there can be more than one code in different locations on the bottle. They could be etched into the glass or printed with ink, and can also be very faint or illegible, as well as sometimes being stretched out (like the bottle was turning too fast while it was being etched).
-Does it have a tax strip (real or faux), and/or a government warning on the label?
-Any other details that you can think of.
Thanks in advance to anyone participating!
Future generations will appreciate this documentation, don't let the history be lost forever!
