    Newbie\'s \"dusty\" bottles

    Riding around a bit today, I found a store with a few old bottles. Can ya'll tell me something about what I have got here? My computer ability is even less than my bourbon knowledge, so no pictures. But I picked up:

    Old Fitgerald 80 proof, no age statement, "Distilled, Aged, and Bottled by Old Fitzgerald Distillery, Inc., Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky." Has a tax stamp (strip over top, and state sticker). Marked "Special, $7.99." Apparently originally in the computer at $36 or so.

    Old Charter 10 Year, 86 proof, tax stamp as above, also Louisville (simply "distilled by OC. . ."). Hope I like this one; it's a 1.75 ml, $25.99. I'd actually bought a current 10 year earlier to compare to the 12 yr Classic as there aren't a lot of comments on the 10 year around here and the 12 yr. sometimes seems too woody.

    Old Weller Centennial, 100 proof, 10 yr., "distilled and bottled by W. L. Weller and Sons, Louisville Kentucky." No tax stamp, but I gather these three are all from the same place as the first 5 digits of the UPC are the same.

    Anyway, that's all I found. Haven't really hit them yet, but any info would be welcome.

    ...Old Fitgerald 80 proof, no age statement, "Distilled, Aged, and Bottled by Old Fitzgerald Distillery, Inc., Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky." Has a tax stamp (strip over top, and state sticker). Marked "Special, $7.99." Apparently originally in the computer at $36 or so...
    It probably also says "D.S.P. KY 16" on the front of the label, too. Stitzel-Weller bourbon. Good find -- but the BIB version would be even better. Unless it's a 1.75L (or 1/2-gallon), though, I'm doubtful it was ever $36, though -- $3.60 is more likely, some years ago.

    Old Charter 10 Year, 86 proof, tax stamp as above, also Louisville (simply "distilled by OC. . .")...

    ...Old Weller Centennial, 100 proof, 10 yr., "distilled and bottled by W. L. Weller and Sons, Louisville Kentucky." No tax stamp, but I gather these three are all from the same place as the first 5 digits of the UPC are the same.
    Is that UPC string "88076"? You've got United Distillers product -- in the case of the Weller, likely again Stitzel-Weller, as part of UD's Bourbon Heritage Collection.
    Both Old Charter and Weller Centennial (and the other Wellers) are now labels/bottlings produced by Buffalo Trace.

    Yep. that's the UPC code, but there is nothing on the front about "D.S.P." The only thing that could be a code number on the front is very small, lower right corner "CG-16.902.02.00" On the back, lower right is "IH 27.902.02.02"
