Hi guys,

 

Was going through my collection and something caught my eye.

There was an "age" notification on the side label which, as far as I know, is normally on the back label. (this whiskey is 4 years old)

 

Wonder if this occurred more often ?

 

Cheers,

Edwin

I’m sure I have a couple with the age on the side label, I’ll need to check. I think it was a legal requirement for Alabama so if they didn’t have a rear label they were printed on the side. What year is this mini ?

Thanks for the feedback Max.
Bottle is from 1978 and has indeed NO back label.
Is this only mentioned on the mini's or also on bigger sizes from that time ?

The only green label minis that I own that have the “years old” on the back label are the earlier embossed Mini’s ....

I love that 54 months tekst Max, never seen that before.

 

My green has an Alabama tax seal too (or part of it) so that confirms your knowledge.

Thanks for the info and sharing of the pics. Great mini's !
