Old Charter Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Old Charter 8 year old

80 Proof, "Rye Recipe" Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 89

 

Tasting Notes

 

Colour:-Medium Gold

 

Nose:- this shows a complex, well-balanced nose that shows both dry, peppery notes and a rich honey-vanilla sweetness.

 

Taste:-The body is medium, leaning toward full, and the palate follows the nose being at once dry and sophisticated with some tingly spicy notes, and also showing a sweet side full of toffee, vanilla and a rich oakiness.

 

Finish:- The finish is very long and very satisfying.

 

Comments:-This is a well-crafted Bourbon with a balance that's hard to beat. Sip it neat, on the rocks, or in a Manhattan cocktail.

Tasting Notes

 

Colour:- Burnished gold

 

Nose:- The aromas begin with a bone-dry pepperiness, followed swiftly by a rich, sweet buttery note.

 

Taste:-The body is huge and creamy, coating your whole mouth, and the palate brings old leather into play with an abundance of fruits, cloves and sweet vanilla.

 

Finish:- The finish is long and very sophisticated.

 

Comment:- A classic world-class whiskey.

Old Charter 12 year old

90 Proof, "Rye Recipe" Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 92

 

Tasting Notes

 

Nose:- The nose is complex and dry, but there is honeyed backdrop that balances the predominant peppery aromas nicely.

 

Taste:-The body is big, and the palate, like the nose, is drier than younger versions of Old Charter, bringing a rich bunch of spices to the forefront and keeping the sweeter notes, now fruity rather than honeyed, as a backdrop.

 

Finish:-The finish is long and spicy.

 

Comment:- Another great whiskey from Old Charter – Sip it neat or on the rocks.

Old Charter 10 year old

86 Proof, "Rye Recipe" Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 90

 

Tasting Notes

 

Colour:-  medium-gold

 

Nose:- This whiskey presents aromas showing a honeyed sweetness playing off some drier peppery notes and a hint of old leather.

 

Taste:-The body is very big, and the palate is elegant and rich, with the toffee sweetness playing off a potpourri of spices.

 

Finish:- The finish is long and smooth.

 

Comments:-This whiskey should be reserved for post-prandial consumption, where it should be served neat (although it does work well over ice).
