Thompson Select Straight Kentucky Whiskey

Thompson Select Straight Kentucky Whiskey.

So, I was slumming around on Craig’s List the other day looking for a swing set, yeah a swing set, and I found this delicious looking bottle of Thompson Select Straight Kentucky Whiskey. In about 5 years this hooch will be at least 100 years old. Heck, they knew prohibition was coming and sent flyers out to market basically saying, “get it while it’s legal.”  I called the seller and he thinks he has something very special, which he does. However, based on his asking price, it ain’t THAT special. This must have been “new old stock” at the time because the distillery closed in 1918 but was shipped to a pharmacy in 1930, according to the date and information on the shipping crate. Fortunately, I nabbed the photos before the listing was pulled. Hey, if you’re lucky, these gems might still be for sale. Just put your best Pawn Stars poker face on when you call.

  1. I called this seller, too, but his asking price was a bit too pricey for me–nice bottle, though!

  2. Yeah, I thought four figures was stiff but, to the right buyer, who knows…
