Proof66 Notes

Old Charter - a popular bourbon in the American south - is one of sharp offering from Buffalo Trace.

The Boys of Bourbon gave this an 87 and includes a funny story about how this blogger ordered "something I never heard of called Old Charter. That resulted in several of these baby boomers nearly spitting Yellow Tail merlot out their nose.

I'm not crazy about 80-proof bourbons in general, but this is my third-favorite one (after Four Roses Yellow Label and George Dickel 8). Very easy-going combination of rye spice and charred caramel sweetness. I disagree about the 10-year expression, though; I find its extremely dry rye punch overpowers any other flavors that try to peek through.

I'll give this 4 stars, it has a nice spice to it that some bourbons seem to lack at times. Makes a good drink!

I really enjoy this, I only wish the 10 year was still available but either way... I hold this close to Wild Turkey 101 in the fact it has a pleasant spice though not as pronounced since it is lower proof. Give it a try is what I say.

Found a full bottle of Old Charter from 1918 so decided to try a new bottle. Not bad at all for such a low cost bourbon. Wish it was a higher proof.

Its a nice "everyday" bourbon and tastes better than others at the same price. It has a nice, sweet aroma, and I like the taste of it neat.

A nice mixer bourbon. The kind that if you were offered a drink at someone's house who wasn't a spirits aficionado, you'd be glad to see this bottle come out. The 10-year expression is substantially better for not much more money, however.

For $13, you can't go wrong with Old Charter Bourbon. Throw some over a couple ice cubes and you're good to go.
