    Figured you Bourbon guys would appreciate this. I was at my cigar lounge this past Friday and one of our oldest patrons had this very rare bourbon to share with us. His father is unfortunately suffering from dementia so he had cleaned out his fathers collection recently. Apparently the man was quite a collector. Along with sealed bottles of 1950’s Remy Martin Cognac, 1968 Jack Daniels, this was among them:

    1969 (plus 8 years) Walker’s DeLuxe Illinois Bourbon. It tasted like liquid brown sugar. 86 proof

    Just for reference sake; here’s that bottle of 1950’s Remy Martin Cognac. It was so good. I was privileged with 2 glasses.

    Love old Walkers - the bar at my family’s cabin has 5 or 6 bottles my grandparents bought around the same time frame.

    Synthetic whiskey. And yes, it tastes recreated (excessive vanilla). It’s a chemical recreation of whiskey, never aged or distilled.
