I want to know what makes a great looking bourbon bottle. For this post, I'm not talking about what's in the bottle, I'm talking about the actual appearance of the bottle. I buy bourbon for the content, but sometimes I hold the bottle in my hand and can't help but say, "wow, that is a cool looking bottle!" I'm solicting photos and opinions and I'll start with mine:
I like Bulleit. Here's why, it's not the classiest or the most regal, but remember we're not talking about a posh, snooty liquor, this is bourbon. The Bulleit Bourbon bottle looks like it's begging to be sitting on a poker table. You can almost smell that cigar smoke and the see the chips go flying as the six shooters come out.
I also really like the look of Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon, Eagle Rare, Rock Hill Farms, and 1792 Ridgemont Reserve but when people look at my collection, I almost always find myself talking about the frontier look of the Bulleit.
What do you all think?
