Although many fine bourbons were represented at the Chico Bottle Show yesterday, one very recent find walked in the door and fell into a fellow collector's welcoming hands. Suffice to say the the purchase price was extremely reasonable for the superior quality of the bottle. It is a J.Moore/E.Chielovich fifth that has "day one" embossing and is whittled to death.
Rumor has it that five other very rare old bourbons were found along with his one and purchased by another collector for a minimal amount. The others will be mentioned soon enough, but this is the only example to be offered for outright sale.
Sorry about the poor quality of the photos, but they were taken early this AM and kind of hurried. Maybe some better ones will follow at a later date.
