Bottles from 1976

Unread postby Direwolf » Sat Jun 12, 2010 8:30 am

Hi, everyone,

I've been wanting to acquire a bottle of bourbon bottled in 1976. Do such bottlings, to your knowledge, exist? If so, what would be available, worth acquiring and what do you think would be a fair price?

Cheers,

I'm guessing here, but does tis have to do with a birth date? If so perhaps you might consider looking for a bottle distilled in '76 instead, matching the "birthday" of the bourbon not it's maturity.

In the mean time I will dig into the JB decanter bottles i purchased last summer to see if I have one that matches either criteria.

Hi, Texan,

Quite right. Up too early for a Saturday, I'm afraid. I meant distilled in 1976. And, yes, has to do with birth year.

Sadly, I'm only acquainted with the bottlings of the last four or five years, and even then, only what I see in NYC or read about here or elsewhere.

If you have any advice, I'd be very interested.

Cheers,
DW.
