from the seller -

This is a very rare 1980 vintage open pint bottle of Jack Daniel�s �other� whiskey, Lem Motlow.

Lem Motlow was Jack Daniel�s nephew who took over running the distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee. Until the mid-1980s, the Jack Daniel�s Distillery also bottled a one-year aged whiskey under the �Lem Motlow� brand.

I bought this bottle in Nashville, TN after touring the distillery in Nashville on a 1980 trip to the Smoky Mountains. We opened it, tasted it, and the look on our faces confirmed that it had a real bite. It was a lot like drinking ground glass.
