Picked up some more dusty bottles in DC today. All in all, it was a good haul.

What is the label directly in front of E, inbetween the Turkeys and Fitz? Has gold foil on it...WT 12?

Jeff,

That's a WT Old No. 8 from 1992....which would be transition time from the 8 year.

Popped back into DC yesterday with a couple of fellow enthusiasts and picked up some nice bottles. Notable mentions are:

1974 Old Fitz 86pf
1978 HW Private Cellar Bonded (ILL)
1981 AA 86pf
1983 OO
WTRR 101 - first time I've seen these in DC
WT 86.8

and in trade I received some OCPR slope shoulder.

I've added a couple more selections to my bunker. First up, 1995 OWA liter bottles. These were evidently destined for Duty Free but somehow never made it. They also have the gold vein through the glass. Also added two handles of 1988 Weller Special Reserve.

While I didn't do the hunting myself, a fellow enthusiast was in town and did some hunting and was generous enough to share in the bounty:

1972/1981 OGD BIB
1985 OGD BIB
1988 WT 8 yr 101
1972/1979 Old Forester BIB

All favorites of mine.
