    Indeed; and there's something to be said for that.

    "Corks" can easily be mistaken for something else that is a more adult-oriented. With that in mind the thread title is a bit funny.

    Re: Collecting Blanton's Horse Corks

    I went through my box of Blanton's horsies the other day. I would like to buy a vowel...

    I am only missing an A. I will just wait till one comes my way in the natural course of drinking fine bourbon.

    They've got a basket full of the letter (horse) corks in the BT gift shop. I saw them the day we picked the PVW 23 Barrels

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

    Re: Collecting Blanton's Horse Corks

    I see it now. Mine's an "L".

    They are so tiny, I'm guessing their only role is to ensure that the figures are placed in the proper order so the horse's stride looks right.

    Re: Collecting Blanton's Horse Corks

    I can't quite figure out what mine is.
    It looks like the letter N with a smaller 2 beside it.
    But the line of the 2 that connects the upper half circle and the bottom flat line is longer than it should be that makes a 2.
    Is this maybe the second N followed by some sort of apostophre for the S to follow?
