    Pretty sure in this case whoever forks over 2 large for a bottle of Blanton's is doing it as a showpiece. More of a "Check out what I got" kind of deal. IIRC that's the first year of production for them. Hell, what do I know, maybe somebody would pop it open.

    @bvbull200 have you cracked that 2019-01 yet? I'm not sure if I missed it here... I'm eagerly awaiting your review - given that you're our resident Booker's expert :thumbsup:

    Looking forward to reading your thoughts!

    The guy at my local liquor store knows that I like the good stuff as I am always asking him what they have hidden. Well today, when I walk in, he offers me a bottle of Kentucky Owl "Confiscated" Bourbon for $150. I declined because I don't know anything about it and $150 is a little high on a unknown(to me) bottle. After reading a little, I may go back and get it.
    Anybody have any insight for me??

    For a lot of bottles, this is exactly why people pay so much for them. I know the whiskey was meant to be consumed, but, at a point, when a bottle is still around, it is worth more (even intrinsically) as a collector's item than it is as a cure for sobriety. It's like a trading card or piece of artwork.

    I have this bottle of Seagram's VO from 1979. Not as valuable as that Blanton's, but still cost a bit more than its contemporary. I bought it to gift to my parents' on their upcoming 40th anniversary.

    I know it's just Seagram's, but it has a bit of history with the family. For a long time, Seagram's 7 has been a go-to on my dad's side of the family. I've drank plenty of 7 & 7s myself. When my parents or grandparents had a few extra nickels in their pocket, they'd spring for the Seagram's VO. There is a really good chance that, on my parents' wedding night, there were bottles just like this one - with the same tax strip on them - being served to the guests.

    This will be really cool to look at for about 10 minutes until it almost certainly gets opened. :D

    I have not. Only got it home a couple days ago ;).

    I have a lot of open Booker's that I'd do well to move over to the stack of empties, but I'll try to get you a review this weekend :).

    Ok, so on that note, I've got a bottle of Jim Beam Duck Stamp series circa 1983.

    Worth anything? Not that it will be for sale

    Wow, I imagine that's gotta be worth a pretty penny given the limited bottling. That's damn cool, thanks for sharing.

    $75-150, probably. Box looks like you'd expect being 35 years old, but the fill level on that bottle is really good, so it's probably towards the higher side. I just looked up a few and found an auction as low as $50 (that person got a steal) and some private sales for upwards of $140. I don't know enough about the history of that bottle to distinguish exactly why some might command more than others. That's in the neighborhood of what that Seagram's VO cost me, though I bought it a while back and can't remember specifically.

    Really cool bottle! I'd show that thing off for sure.

    Thanks! It basically lives way in the back of my liquor closet...my old man gave it to me when I discovered bourbon about 15 years ago. He bought it new back in 83. It won't be cracked open.

    Today was a good day. At retail. Saw another stagg marked up to $80 and left it on the shelf.

    I sent your pics to a buddy of mine that loves these old bottles and is also a duck hunter... he sent this back in return. Man, these are badass. He's bought and sold a few of these and said they've gone for 60-80 bucks.

    Well, a stormy snowy evening seems like a good time to crack the bottle that the GF brought back for me from her trip to the UK.

    Edit- a dram by the fire while the snow falls and the cat tries to catch birds thru the window seems even better!
    Slainte!!

    So I finished off a bottle of Evan Williams single barrel a couple of weeks ago. Now it's time to pick the next contestant. 20190409_175431.jpg
