    Best Looking Bourbon Bottle

    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?

    My Apologies. I'm new to the board.

    I still like looking at pictures of bourbon bottles if anyone has some they'd like to show off.

    Ok ...

    The best looking bottle (in my opinion) is this one...Newly acquired, kinda old, and rare ...

    The best part about this bourbon bottle? The bourbon inside was distilled by my grandfather "Pop Beam"...(aka) Harry Milburn Beam

    I definately like the Elijah Craig 12yo & 18yo, or any of the Blantons bottles.

    Re: Best Looking Bourbon Bottle

    Thanks Dane

    Actually, that was not the bottle that I have been searching for...

    Don't get me wrong...

    Let me tell ya

    It was a major surprise and the thrill was just awsome ...I saw that summabuck and said...Sweettttttttttttttttt ...I set the bid at at mega and kept my finger's crossed

    The HH Old Style (in my first post in this thread) was distilled while my grand father was there...The picture in "this post" is the bottle that I'm in search of...It was distilled by my great grandfather, Joseph L. Beam (you can see his name on the back label---Joe L. Beam--- The first Master Distiller at Heaven Hill and one of the first original incorporators of Heaven Hill

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh Yeahhhhhhhhhhh

    I think Bulliet has a nice bottle, not to mention a great bourbon. I also like Buffalo Traces bottle as well as those in the Buffalo Trace antique collection. great bourbon deserves a great bottle.
