    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    I think there are a bunch that haven't been nominated yet:

    1. WT Ky Spirit which is reminiscent of a gobbler in full strut...
    2. Old Pogue whose elegance only gives way to it's instability due to the small base.
    3. WR for much of the same except that it reminds me of a tombstone...
    4. JR and EC 18 that look like oversized perfume bottles

    but my personal favorite has to be EW Distiller's Select earthenware jug for that nostalgic feel.

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    Of what I've seen, I love the look of the EC18 and the Blanton's bottle a lot. The WR bottle looks unique in the fact that it's highly flat and wide. A haven't seen them in the flesh but the BT antiques and even the regular BT bottle looks highly classy.
    and perhaps it's due to the fact that I love it's contents, but the Baker's 7 bottle and logo looks really bold and trendy.

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    Great subject for a post!

    I'm going to vote for the Cream of Kentucky bottle as the number one pick. Very fancy glass for the period.

    Then the Bulleit retro.

    Then, last but not least, I've got to side with Tim, the Kentucky Tavern "Captains Quart" Sea-Decanter is also grand.

    BTW, I'd just love to get my hands on a KT "Captains Quart" sea decanter, with or without contents.

    Best regards, doug

    The Jim Beam Rye with the bright yellow label? That's one of the bottles that I try to hide in the back of the shelf!

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    All great choices. I'll cast my vote for the Jefferson's Reserve. Similar to the 1792. Not as cool as 1792 with it's heavy glass bottom but it would make a great flask (I have big pockets!)

    Cheers,

    Ken

    I'll go with the Bulleit bottle--very unique. But the Four Roses SB and the Rock Hill Farms bottles are also real eye-catchers.

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    I got to go with the ORVW squats(preferably full of 15yo)
    Rock hill is nice as well and EC 18yo....
    OF Birthday and Blanton's are nice...
    But most importantly as long as it's great bourbon
    they can ship it to me in a milk jug!!!!

    Re: Best Looking Bottles

    Of the bottles in my collection, none receives more comments than Bulleit Bourbon. It has a very unassuming look to it, nothing complex.
