    Re: What are the Stars in your Collection

    Here are mine

    Several VOF's from the '50's. Seem to be on everyone's "Holy Grail" list.

    Van Winkle Family Reserve 17yo from Julian's personal collection purchased at auction at the Getz Museum in Bardstown and signed by Julian. This is the same whiskey that eventually became the first Pappy 20. Dripping red wax top.

    Van Blankle 12yo Lot B signed by Julian. It will be the last one drunk.

    1957 Old Forrester BIB 5yo in the Raymond Loewy designed decanter. Roger also likes this bottle design. One of my faves to look at. Plastic and glass.

    Waterfill Frazier distilled in the distillery a Beam (Betty Jo's relations) moved down to Juarez, Mexico during prohibition. From my grandfather.

    Old Fitz BIB's from 1982....leftover from my first mariage's rehersal dinner.

    Re: What are the Stars in your Collection

    I'm new to collecting, but I'd say so far, Old Forester BIB S1965-S1971 and OGD S1971-F1976 are pretty much my best finds and would be tough to replace. I also have a bunch of OGD BIB and 114 from the latter part of the ND era, but I know where there's more...

    Oh, and I'll say the gold foil WT12 I found last weekend is a star...jeez, how did I almost forget it.

    Re: What are the Stars in your Collection

    I don't buy anything to collect it. With Bourbon, I buy it to drink. But, that said, of course I have several I prefer.... GTS 04, 05 & 06 & WT Tribute top the list.

    Re: What are the Stars in your Collection

    I consider quite a few my strs, but back in Jan 2006, I found the greatest of bottles in my wife's Grandfather's wine cellar. Actually I found a couple of real treasures but this one took my breath away. The best part is, IT WAS FREE!!!!!!
