    As others have pointed out....1972 appears to be the distillation year, which places the bottling around 1977. That would be in line with ACDetroits comment about the cap being TE steel cap.

    I just couldn't hold out anymore. The bottle has been sampled! I'm nowhere near an expert on bourbon, but I do like this stuff.

    Hey Dog! if you get a chance on Dixie there is a store called (I think??) Paradise Liquor and he grabs WT 8 yr old for me from the Duty Free check it out he may have one right now! I think you'll like it!
