    Best Looking Bottles

    Much time is devoted to talking about the best tasting bourbons in the world on this website. As an offbeat subject, what do people think are the neatest looking bottles ever made. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the old ORVW squat bottles. I also like the Blanton's bottle quite a bit.

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    I'm partial to the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon bottles, myself. They often get comments when people are looking at my collection.

    For elegance: the stenciled, straight-sided, tall Antique Collection bottles from Buffalo Trace.

    For conveying a sense of outdoorsy historicity bespeaking bourbon: Again, Buffalo Trace, on its eponymous bottling.

    For universal functionality: As Clayton mentions, OFBB's impossible-to-spill bottle, which had a predecessor of an earlier Kentucky Tavern sea-captain's decanter of similar shape.

    I agree with Tim. The Rock Hill Farms bottle is the one that seems to get the most comments from friends.

    Couldn't have said it better Tim.

    I'll add one more, which I've never seen in person. Wild Turkey 17.

    I like the Old Charter bottle with the grain molded into the glass. There's a picture in this thread.

    I personally like the Blantons bottles. Family & friends often comment on the Elijah Craig 12yo bottle.

    I like the Ridgemont Reserve - 1792 bottle. It looks more like a decanter than a bottle.

    Everyone has chosen some unique and classy bottles. I also like the Ridgemont bottle. Another is the Four Roses Single Barrel.

    I give a third vote for 1792 and I also like the retro look of Bulleit.
