Re: Old Grand-Dad Bourbon found in a basement

Look on bottom and you may find a 2 digit code in the glass. That should be the last 2 numbers of the year of bottling. Or snap a picture and then maybe some others will be able to help

Dun Bheagan Springbank

Curious to know if anyone has tasted the Dun Bheagan Springbank 31yr 1974/2006 cask 1160? I know Astor Wines did one from 1970 that was good. I cannot find anything on the internet as far as reviews of the 74.
