This was a departing gift for a USMC Major. I thought the title “one for the road” would be appropriate. The bottle was sent over for measurements. Only the weight changed! All kidding aside this was for a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label but I had to put something in place for the picture and a half gallon of milk would not make the grade.

The EGA and the MWSS crest were made from cherry, mahogany, maple, cocobolo, paduak, walnut, purple heart, bubinga and oak.
