    Hello from a new member and a question

    Hello Folks,
    New member BourbonitisBlues here. I'm a long time bourbon enthusiast and decided to join this site. I've already found a ton of great information and look forward to participating. I have a quick question. A friend recently gave me an older (early 1960s) bottle of bourbon called Old Pickett. It also says TP Taylor Co. on the bottle. I have searched all over the internet and have found NOTHING. Can anyone here enlighten me? Thanks

    Just a guess, but you might have a 'store brand' bottling. T. P. Taylor & Co. appears to be a drug store, at least according to this site.

    Not sure if this helps, but good luck with your research!

    Old Pickett was a brand owned by Taylor Drug stores here in Louisville. It was 4-year Heaven Hill bourbon bottled for the drug store as their house brand. When Taylor Drugs sold out to Rite Aid a few years ago, the brand dissapeared.

    Hi

    Being a new member myself - only recently recognizing the quality of bourbon - I find this site both informativ and entertaining. I used to be a devoted scotch drinker but a sip of Bookers opened my eyes. Still love a good scotch though.
    I was wondering whether anyone knows an onlineshop in the U.S. that will ship whiskey to Europe?

    Thanks, Julian. Taylor had been one of my accounts when I was in advertising in Louisville and I always wondered what happened to them. Now I work for Walgreens, who I don't expect will disappear without a trace anytime soon.

    Try Sam's Wine and Spirits. If they can't do it, nobody can.

    Thanks

    I have just placed an order.
    Just had to have a bottle of Hirsch 16 and the Wild Turkey Russel Reserve. Prices seam much more reasonable.

    TW,

    Do you mean to tell me that Sam's can ship to you in Denmark, while they can't ship to me in my prospective new residence in Arizona, USA? How crazy is that?!

    I'm tempted to quote "Hamlet" here regarding Denmark, but I won't. It's we Yanks who are to blame -- for tolerating laws that benefit the few at the expense of the many.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield
