Hit me if something like this appears in THE FORUM before. I am just curious - who is the owner of the oldest single barrel bottle? I start with mine:

It is a 70cl German Bacardi Hamburg Import bottle, dated 10/2/97 (2. October 1997) - oooohhh, it just had its 10th birthday...
Now it's your turn to beat this...:iwin

I think that this was mentioned in the past on the forum, i think the oldest is from January 1997 from what i have seen.

You may have to wait until the BBQ is over and those members are back as i think one of them may own it, or it may even be JeePee!!!!

I have 2 1997 SB's - 02 October 1997 & 15 May 1997

The May 1997 i got from JeePee (thanks again) and is my daughters 18th Birthday, so a little bit special for me.

So, does that mean we have two of the "2.October.1997" bottles from the same barrel???
Mine is (hard to read, most of the colour faded...) Rick No.R-08 or 12-08??? Barrel No.7-1164, but I'm not sure...

The details on my bottle are...

Rick No. R-10
Barrel No. 7-1095
Date. 10/2/97

Bottled on the same day but different barrels.

Not the oldest bottle out there but a '97 Single Barrel for $69 ? I think it would be wrong to leave it sitting on the shelf ;D go for it ;)
