Galoping horse on a hexagonical bottle (what is it)

Postby Falk » Mon Jul 22, 2002 4:05 pm

Who is able to help me find out, what I drank 10 years ago?

When I was byer for wines in Germany, I got a whisky (bourbon I suppose)on christmas 1989

It was bottled in a bellied hexagonally or octagonally heavy bottle, packed
in brown valveteen up to the bottleneck. On top a corks with a galoping
golden horse. The number of the cask was written on it.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS AND WHERE TO GET IT AGAIN?
Me and my fatherinlaw would give anything to drink that superp whisky again

Sounds like Blanton's Single Barrel to me (and very nice it is too). You should be able to get it from any big and well-stocked whisky emporium (the likes of La Maison du Whisky in Paris, Milroys or the Vintage House in London, or any number of on-line retailers - there are quite a few in Germany that seem to stock it).

One endeavours to give uniform satisfaction. Although I have to say, Blanton's is great but I think that Old Rip Van Winkle 15 year old and Booker's (Jim Beam) are even better for much the same price or less!
