    I found an old bottle of Fitz, what do you think it's worth?

    ...only joking.

    I did find a bottle of Old Fitzgerald locally. I think it's about 1992, fake tax stamp. History please. I thinking it's gonna taste young? or not?

    Anyway, what kind of Fitz is it? Is it BIB or a Prime? What is the proof?

    if it's an Old Fitz BIB and distilled and bottled at DSP-KY-16 then that's some damn fine bourbon.

    If it's got the fake tax strip, it probably mid-late 80's. Check the bottom for a two digit date.

    Old Fitzgerard BIB from DSP-KY-16 is one of my favorites. Been drinking it regularly for the last 2 months ever since I found 5 dusty 1.75 bottles. I bought 3 of them...hope the other 2 are still there waiting for me when I have the chance to return. The place is not exactly around the corner from me.

    The stuff is priceless

    Sorry, I took the bottle down to my office and I keep forgetting to bring it home with me.

    It wasn't a BIB. I couldn't find any age expression. I did peek at the bottom of the bottle when I was buying it and it had 92. Along with the fake tax stamp, which had no info on it. I'll see if I can remember to bring it home over the weekend and snap a photo to post.
