Yesterday was a Good Bottle Day
“What you spend on the peanuts, you save on the bananas”
Yesterday was a good bottle day, a very good day. One of my pickers from up north paid me a visit.
The flask, the wickedest color Drakes 6 log I’ve seen, a western glop top whiskey and a few smalls were a package deal. What you spend on the peanuts, you save on the bananas. Both the seller and I are pleased with the outcome.
The Drakes is a kind of weird smoky peach color, hammer whittled, and has the sloppiest top I’ve seen on a six log. It’s got a weird base mark with six dots. Oh, and then there’s the flask;
“found wrapped up in a mid 19th century blanket chest in one of the oldest settlements at the end of the Oregon trail”
GI-47 quart. It’s got a good range of color densities, and a decent swirl of tobacco juice at mid section. All bubbles are intact and it is attic mint. This piece was found wrapped up in a mid 19th century blanket chest in one of the oldest settlements at the end of the Oregon trail.
Colors are a little washed out in the pictures but you get the idea~

That’s insane. One of the prettiest I’ve seen.
