Countdown to Reno

The Federation Expo in Reno is just around the corner. Based on what I'm seeing and hearing, this should be the west coast show of the millennium, especially for western whiskey collectors. Ken Schwartz is bringing some real power to tease those with an appetite for the good stuff including a couple of small town fifths to die for; The Manhattan / Oroville, and The Peerless / Madera. He's also laying out the handled red whittled Non-Pariel flask from Kolb & Denhard, a green Chevalier / Castle flask and another dozen or so hitters. Check out his "menu" in this months Bottles & Extras classifieds.

We're looking forward to seeing one and all again this year. We will have a great assortment of pictures, glop tops, flasks, tankers and pre-pro shot glasses. According to Marty, the show is a sellout with around 350 tables reserved. WOW!!! He also said that our table assignment is SECTION D2 / TABLE B.

You can look forward to some great bottles at fair prices. Here's a few photos of some of the offerings that we'll be making available;

 A nice string of Cutters, many with a little something extra going for them in terms of color and crudity.

 A little bit of Aloha from the Islands.

Some desireable tool and glop top pictures in both clear and amethyst.

A quantity of "small town" fifths.

A few critters.

A flock of birds.

A couple of Star Shield JF's plus a little variety tossed in to keep things interesting.

A few more crude and rude glops.

Like I said, a bit of everything.

And that's just the tip of the iceburg. Plus, if you've got any wants or wishes, let me know in advance. I may just have that special bottle stuffed in a box around here.

So come on by the table, pull up a chair and take a load off. See you all shortly.
