Star in Shield "Shoot out" Reno

I just returned from the Reno show, and was blown away by the beautiful display of Cutter "Star in Shield" whiskeys. Collectors from all over the West brought examples of this ever popular fifth to display in a non- competitive event which showcased the beautiful Western glass for all to see.
Special thanks go out to Lou Lambert, and Marty Hall for their organization, and execution of this memorable event. The colors and overall quality of the specimens displayed was awesome! Greens, yellows, olive, and every shade in between. Simply spectacular! Hopefully a comprehensive report is forthcoming, along with photos.
I was to provide two of my examples for this display, and as I rolled into Reno, it became apparent that my examples were safe and home! This old brain must be getting slower, as I completely forgot to bring them. Here are a couple of shots of the earliest version, and the "latest" X based variant. They would have held their own in the display case at Reno, but there were some GREEN specimens (at least 5) that just glowed. Thanks to everyone who actually brought their Cutters to the show...I will remember this event!

  1. I had a great time at the show ! Most of the killer bottles were 'damaged' or not for sale. Seems like the auctions are where most people prefer to sell high end. Either way it was a great show and I can't wait for next year. How about a full face JH Cutter display next year ??
