I recently picked up two unopened bottles of "Benchmark" with a (Bureau of Distilled Spitits) Bottle Stamp
over the top. They are 86 proof
and do have a barcode at on the plain black and gold neck label but do NOT have the
Surgeon General's warning label. They are labeled
" Benchmark Premium Bourbon" and state being "Distilled by the Old Benchmark Distilling
Co., Louisville,Ky." They also have a little oval
label with a crest that states Integrity-Tradition-Craftsmanship. The back of the bottles are
embossed in the glass with the same crest over

Any Idea when these bottles date from?
