I have a pint bottle of "Old Murphy" Whiskey from 1912. A friend of my Dads found a case of it under the porch of his house and gave it to him many years ago. My brother had been keeping it, unfortunately he stored it on its side & the cork failed so most of the whiskey was lost, about a third of a pint is left. We officially opened it this past Christmas Eve and had a few sips, it tasted great, smooth and kind of flowery. We still have a bit left for next Christmas. I haven't been able to find much information about it online.
The front label reads “Old Murphy Whiskey, the kind Father used to drink, bottled in bond at the distillery in old Kentucky for Dinan Brothers 10th and Abbott Sts Detroit Mich”
The back label says it was bottled by the Burks Springs Distillery CO. distillery no. 440 5th dist., Ky. P.O. Loretto, KY.
When I searched ‘Burks Springs Distillery’ I ended up at the Makers Mark website. I gave them the same information I've posted here & hope to hear from them.
Has anyone ever heard of Old Murphy?
I've pictures of the bottle and labels but they’re kind of large, I'm not sure how to post them here but I'll figure it out. If any one is interested I'd be happy to e-mail the pictures.
Thanks for any help.
