    The oldest known whiskey is soon to be up for auction



    (CNN)A historic bottle of whiskey can soon be yours -- if you have tens of thousands of dollars to spare.

    The whiskey, bottled in LaGrange, Georgia, is about to go up for auction. The Old Ingledew Whiskey is believed to be the oldest known whiskey in existence, according to Skinner, which is facilitating the auction.

    The online auction is set for June 22-30. Bids are expected to fall between $20,000-$40,000, Skinner said last week.

    Carbon 14 dating done in conjunction with the University of Georgia indicates the bourbon was likely produced between 1762-1802, around the time of the Revolutionary War and the Whiskey Rebellion, officials said. It's not clear where it was produced.

    Skinner's rare spirits expert, Joseph Hyman, said in a statement the whiskey "is thought to be the only surviving bottle of a trio from the cellar of J.P. Morgan gifted in the 1940s to Washington power elite."

    Financier John Pierpont Morgan reportedly bought the bottle during one of his frequent visits to Georgia, Skinner said. It is believed to have been bottled in LaGrange in the 1860s, according to the auction house, which said it was standard practice to store spirits in demijohns after being aged in oak barrels.

    Jack Morgan, later gifted the bottle up for auction to James Byrnes of South Carolina and two sister bottles to Franklin D. Roosevelt, a distant cousin to Morgan, and Harry S. Truman in the early 1940s.

    Byrnes gifted the bottle to a close friend and neighbor, Francis Drake, whose family safeguarded the bottle for three generations, according to the press release.

    While this may be the oldest known bottle of whiskey, it's nowhere near the most expensive. In 2019, the Macallan Fine and Rare 60-Year-Old 1926 became the most expensive bottle of wine or spirit ever auctioned when it sold for $1.9 million.

    This is an interesting one. Not they typical sweet side I prefer. Very peppery start, slight brown sugar notes, lingers on palate and leaves some maple syrup notes, but that's me.

    Don't know that I would buy again, but was gifted from parents on their trip through that area pre covid. Name:  PXL_20210513_004131986~2.jpeg

IMO the 23 has begun to pick up some of the charcoal notes that leave it feeling kind of flat. Sure, it's still a great whiskey and it's totally worth a taste if you can afford it. But, I think it loses some of the exuberance that it had when it was a bit younger. FWIW, I feel the same way about cognac and scotch. Anything over about 30yo starts to taste a little lackluster to me. I'd rather drink the 20's despite the fact that the older stuff has a more intriguing texture.
    Personally never impressed with any pappy's I've ever tasted. I haven't had all, but quite a few. I think it's more hype and limited supply than superior booze.

    I agree. Not that they’re bad - just not worth the trouble

    +100. A bottle of Old Weller's Antique or Larceny barrel proof scratches the same itch for 1/10 the price.

    Otto Parts gave me the best bourbon I have ever tasted (this guy got serious class). I'm headed over to his house now and I'll ask what it was. Bourbon was the first thing I ever got drunk on and puked my guts out on it when I was a kid, so I refused it my whole life until he gave me some unbelievable stuff.
