S. S. Smith just Dug
30 September 2015
Thought you may like to see this whiskey we just dug over the weekend. I found this at the 3 ½ foot level sitting on a wooden brace along the wall of a huge privy… that was the good news… the bad news (well actually good news) is that this privy was 8 foot by 8 foot by at least 10 feet deep, but only two of us were digging and it was full of water at the 4 foot level with an ash/rock mixture that felt like concrete when pulling, so we had to cover this one up. We are assuming that this bottle was a floater and similar age bottles are down in the use layer. Wish us luck!
