Wait a sec. Do you mean that you have had an unopened bottle of Crown Royal whiskey in your family for 60 some odd years, and no one has ever opened it up and drank it? There has got to be a story behind that. Can you share it?
YES! That’s exactly what I mean. I also have a bottle of Crown Royal that has about a inch left in it from the 1950’s. It has a totally different label on it.
As the story goes, as told by my older brother to me, my uncle gave it to my father as a gift in 1960 & told him to save it for something special. My Dad was strictly a 7&7 drinker & the bottle sat until 1976 when my dad (whose health was failing) told the story to my brother & passed it on to him. It laid on his top shelf of his liquor cabinet out of everyone’s sight. 10 years ago, about a month before my brother passed (we knew he did not have long to live), while I was visiting him, he took the bottle down handed it to me & told me the story & said to do what I thought was best with it. I offered to open it & have a drink with him, but he declined. Since then, I have tucked it away in the back of my liquor cabinet & have really not thought about it. I have drank several bottles of Crown during this time but have not even considered cracking open this bottle.
When my wife gave me the glasses & cigars, she also brought out the bottle & said maybe it’s time you share this with the family. We shall see!
BTW, I have never told this story to anyone. Until now, only my wife knew it.

Heirloom whiskey what a great story, not sure I could open it truthfully. Have you ever considered telling Crown Royal of your heritage bottle? It would make a great publication. If they featured a article somewhere it may be something to have even after the product was gone. Who knows maybe the master distiller would have you in the barrel house for a tasting!

Wow, I’m sorry for your losses, that stuff isn’t fun but the story that came from it is very interesting

That glacine paper is awesome. Also, is that a bundle in a box? 🤣
Basically? I thought it was strange, but I suppose it helps keep the cigars from shifting and getting minor damage.

Stainless is $55, Brass is $50 and copper he charged $65. Shipping is $8.

He doesn’t have a website, actually posts in a local Arizona sugar group on Facebook. But if you wanted one I can connect you to him.

Bet they don't get blown away in the wind! Looks multi purpose, put it in a sock and beat away muggers.
