Are you planning on drinking the contents? If not, and you're just curious about the bottles, then why not start a new thread about miniatures? It makes it much easier for people to find relevant topics if there's a thread for it—the goal is just to not clutter up the forum with threads on existing topics. Otherwise, we might as well put everything in one giant thread labeled "tiki."

I recall making that tongue-in-cheek suggestion here somewhere last week or the week before.

If I could have, I would have hit "Like" on that post until my fingers bled.

"the goal is just to not clutter up the forum with threads on existing topics."

"The pot calling the kettle black"
Interpretations and origins[edit]
As generally understood, the person accusing (the "pot") is understood to share some quality with the target of their accusation (the "kettle"). The pot is mocking the kettle for a little soot when the pot itself is thoroughly covered in it.

Oh and drink it, may not taste great but won't kill ya.
Did find an old bottle of 151 Lemon Hart from the 60s, it did not taste that good, so it's a crap shoot.
Got this from Bob Karst one of the first Kahiki bartenders, Ya GOT to try it though, right?

Well put tikiskip.

I won't be drinking any of these, i bought them just for show. After doing a google search provided by howlinowl in the Collecting Tiki thread it seems the Chartreuse bottle is pre 1970's which is pretty cool. And i like that Lemon Hart bottle you have.

And those are all full size bottles.
I should add I would not try ones with floaters or that looked funky.
Plus Chartreuse is composed of distilled alcohol aged with 130 herbs, plants and flowers.
Would stay away from drinking booze with lots o plant and or fruit type stuff in it.
Again won’t kill ya but the fruit, plants goes bad and gets funky quickly.
I know cane sugar is a plant and in lots o rums.

BUT on the big bottles I empty those and use them I my bar with new fresh booze as
They look way cooler than new ones.
