Yes, both extremely smooth.

I inherited these from my Girlfriend's Aunt after she recently passed (along with about 50 other bottles, ranging from wines to Brandy to old liquor bottles they'd hand out on airlines in the 40's, 50's and 60's - pretty awesome stuff to be honest). I gave a few bottles away and kept a few for myself.

The IW Harper has a date of Fall 1965 on the tag, so I was honestly hesitant to even try it. It was stored properly in a liquor cabinet the entire time, and is just a great tasting whiskey.

The "Antique Bourbon" was bottled by the Frankfort Distilling Co in Kentucky and I'm trying to find out more info on it. From what I've found, it was a whiskey available during Prohibition that sold as a medicinal whiskey.

Still trying to dig up some info on it tho.

EDIT- Heres anither picture of the IW Harper:

I'm in San Antonio for Nismo Z Fest. Anyone recommend a liquor store to find less common high end Bourbon?

Bringing out the dead. Growing up 60 miles from Louisville KY, I appreciate Bourbon. I like to drink Woodford or Bulleit on the rocks. The best bang for you buck is Evan williams 1783. Its a 11 dollar bottle that tastes like a 40. If you really like bourbon drink it neat or with a cube or two. Mixing is for posers! -zing-

Crown is good buy I honestly haven't had any in a while. Still loving the Forty Creek. I prefer it to Crown, although there's nothing wrong with Crown Royal. I don't think I've ever tried the XR. I may have to check it out.

If you guys like beer as well I recommend Rogue Whiskey. It's made from the same combo that they use to brew their dead guy ale. It's pretty good.

All this whisky talk has me looking for a new brand to try. Can anyone recommend a sipping whisky?

Criteria:
Prefer Irish to Tennessee, Canada is okay
Blended is okay
Favorite so far is Green Spot (impossible to find)
Not too much bite
Not for mixing

I have a dedicated ice cube tray for freezing spring water to use with my tumblers, I've tried whiskey rocks, I like ice cubes. If it matters, I usually smoke a pipe of english tobacco while drinking whisky (we fancy).

Ready, go!

I like the way you roll GFN! I can't be too much help, I'm more of a bourbon guy. I just finished a bottle of Isle of Jura, either it matured or I did. When I first bought it 8 years ago I wasn't a big fan. Right now I'm sticking with The Glenrothes Three Decades paired with a cigar usually and especially with the better weather. When I use ice I generally try to use a ball of ice made with distilled water or whiskey stones for no ice.

I still don't have the appreciation for Bourbon or whiskey (scotch) but I am trying. I am a high end rum and tequila fan. With that said, I have found a few things I do like.

With Scotch, Glenmorengie 15yr was awesome, McCallan 12, 15 & 17 are good, and Glenrothes Select 1985 was amazing.

With whiskey so far the only one I can drink is Bernheim Wheat Whiskey. That is some good ish and is only like 30 bucks a bottle. Very smooth and slightly sweet...I love that one

I've been on a Red Stag kick lately. It's fire for the first shot but so smooth for ever after.

I've convinced myself that Ref Stag is better than NyQuil when I'm not feeling well. Turns out I don't feel well an awful lot... Paired it with a cherry bomb CAO the other day which was pretty nice.
