Old Charter 12 year old
90 Proof, "Rye Recipe" Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Wine Enthusiast rating: 92
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.
