Today, I acquired an interesting bottle.
Its called "Collector's Item" bourbon. Distilled in 1955 and bottled in 1975. It has neck tag with a note from Ben Ripey (its script, it might be Rijay or Rijey) It has a green stamp across the seal and is in a mesh net. Its distilled at DSP 51, , but it says bottled by Kentucky Distilling Company, Lawrenceburg, KY, DSP 112, which should be Commonwealth Distllery Its 100 proof BIB. The neck tag says bottled by Dowling Distilleries, Lawrenceburg.
I got to taste some from a opened bottled and was pleasantly surprised by the maple syrup sweetness and long dry finish. Any clues?
