J.F. Cutter

Here is a nice colored fifth I recently acquired from an "old timer's" collection. This is the second version of the four glob top J.F. Cutter fifths. While my main collecting focus is early western bitters, I could not pass up the chance at such a pretty western whiskey. There has been a lot of research and write-ups on these but I thought I would share this one. It would have been nice to include this example at the "J.F. Cutter Shoot Out" in Reno awhile back. It is actually a bit greener than my cabinet shows as the lighting in my case amplifies yellow, but you get the idea. DM
