Boxes that smell corked

Why is it that some boxes smell corked? I get that it can be a cardboard smell. But sometimes wood boxes smell that way too. I know it can’t transfer because it isn’t in contact with the wine.

Re: WTB: Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

Any price difference for an old 12 year old Weller? I might have a bottle. I think made prior to buffalo trace relocation. I also might have donated it to an auction. I will have to check and see if I can reach it.

We had them while in Rome last summer, I don't believe these versions are imported to the USA. If someone has seen them, I would love to know.
