    Cool My dusty bottle finds

    This being an ABC state, I don't get many opportunities to find "dusty bottles" in the stores. But today, I got some very pleasant surprises.

    You see, my wife was making me clean up my room. In a very dusty corner, I found a few brown paper bags. I knew they were bottles of bourbon, but I was very pleased to find a bottle of Kentucky Spirit and another of Old Grand Dad 114. I also found two bottles of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon from 2002, but those are unforgetable, so I knew they were there.

    Sometimes, you just have to make your own lucky breaks.

    I have done similar things. My fav is knowing you have a bottle and then finding out it's much older than you thought. Like finding that one of my bottles was a UDV Old Charter 12yo instead of the BT version I thought it was.

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    We are about to move house, and my wife made me pack my bourbons up today. When I got them all out of the cupboard, she thought it was just ridiculous! She said I was "obsessed". I'd like to see what she would say to some of the people on here who have bunkers that make my collection look like a quiet Saturday afternoon

    I also got a bit of a surprise when I found a EWSB 1990 lurking at the back of the cupboard with a pour left in it....
