    Maker's Mark bottles

    I have several of the Maker's Mark bottles, (FULL) that have different wax colors. I have the original UK blue wax, white wax (with the denim label), Green wax mint Julip, and a special Gold wax 101 proof (NOT the VIP square bottle) Bill Samuel himself said this is only sold overseas. I got it through a friend who starts up bars.
    All have been signed by Bill Samuel himself.
    Just wondering if anyone knew if they were worth anything, and where to sell? All (if sold) will be for collectibles only.

    Good question!

    I have several empty ones with red wax. Any value there?

    Mostly sentimental, I suspect.

    Get some full ones now if that's your favorite drink. They're about to start watering it down.

    Nope. Totally worthless. Send them to me and I will dispose of them properly.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    They backed down on the watering down of the whiskey.
