An old bottling of Baker's 7 Year Old, a powerful small-batch bourbon which utilises a special kind of yeast for extra smoothness. Rich and intense, this is a perfect substitute for an after-dinner cognac and is bottled at 107 proof.
The third bottling in Maker's Mark's Triple Crown series, Affirmed won the US race in 1978. Painted silver, profits from the original sales of the bottle were donated to the Maker's Mark Secretariat Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The 2006 bottling in the Keeneland series, Rupp's Runts celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1965/66 Kentucky basketball team. Profits from the original sales of the bottle were donated to the Markey Cancer Center Foundation.
An old bottling of J W Dant, bottled at 4 years of age. Somewhat obscure, but very good value sourmash Kentucky straight, first produced as far back as 1836. Named after Joseph Washington Dant, a Kentucky distilled from the 1830s, who used a tree trunk as a still, rather than a copper one. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1950s.
An old bottling of Old Fitzgerald 1849 – mellowed for years in charred new oak barrrels, this is a fine rare sipping whiskey with a sophisticated, mellow fruity flavour and hints of vanilla and caramel. We estimate this bottle (produced for the Italian market) dates from the 1980s.
