Hello, I'm looking for information on a bottle of whisky that we're also looking to sell. I've noticed a lot of posters of other similar questions were directed to McTears, so I'll make sure to contact them also.
It's called Tennessee Walking Horse, bottled by the Tennessee Walker Distillery Company in Turkey Creek, Moore County, Tenn. It's labeled as 4/5 quart blended whisky, 85.6 proof. It is full, still sealed in its original rice paper wrapping, and has the original box. Unfortunately there are no dates on anything I can find.
It has been hard to find information on it, since there are thousands of links on the internet for the actual Tennessee Walking horses. Also, searching for anything related to "tennessee" and "whisky" doesn't exactly narrow down the number of hits I get. Some tenative information indicates that the distillery itself closed sometime in the 1940's, and that the bottle could potentially be as old as the U.S. prohibition era.
I have digital pictures of the wrapped bottle and all four sides of the box, but they are not posted on the internet anywhere yet. If anyone wants to get a look go ahead and post, and I'll be happy to email them to you.
