If you have posted here before, Jim, I didn't notice. Jim and I go way back. Good to see you on the board. Jim is the man who introduced me to the sport of looking for dusties in old liquor stores.
Based on Jim's dates, this probably isn't Michter's. The Old Gromes Julian bottled with Michter's whiskey for Gordon Hue was bottled in 1991. (Julian spelled it with one "m" in his note to me, but that may have been a typo.)
