GREELEY’S BOURBON WHISKEY BITTERS
aka Vertical Greeley’s
28 February 2012
My last post in the Greeley figural Bitters barrel series is for the Greeley’s Bourbon Whiskey Bitters also known and referred to as the Vertical Greeley’s due to the vertical typographic treatment of “GREELEY’S”. This post is also comparative to my two (2) previous posts for the BOURBON WHISKEY BITTERS and the GREELEY’S BOURBON BITTERS. Most of these barrels come in the oddest, chameleon type colors imaginable and challenge the best of us in describing the color of a particular bottle.
Now to the G 102 Greeley’s. By the way, I am having REAL problems coming up with info on W.F. Greeley and A.W. Greeley and need help from the super sleuths.
