So, got a call from a friend who has a friend who has a grandpa who gave him a bottle of Blanton's from 1984. He knows this is a special bottle, but he doesn't know what it is worth. So, I'm posting this to see if any of you could provide insight.
Here are some snippets he claimed in an email...
" This is one of only 300 bottles made he said. They started bottling this bourbon for the first time in September of 1984 and this bottle is dated back to 10-19-84.... He said the neat thing is the bottle as they don’t make this sort of topper anymore. Most of them still have the horses, but have the lettering on them while this doesn’t. I asked him about why it looks as if there has been some that has evaporated out of it. He said because of tiny micro cracks in the corks that let air in will eventually contribute to the evaporation. "
Any Blanton historians that can validate this little bottle? Thanks.
