Review from sailor22 (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1665, Created:20090827222540)
Purchased at:little store in Georgia
Purchased for:$9
Info on this bottle:dusty '81 bottle
Nose:Some light alcohol at first then wet rye and brown sugar play over a low oak note.
Taste:less sweet than the nose promises with some spice at the mid palate fading quickly to a corn sweetness that isn't particularly deep or complex.
Finish:a satisfying long lasting warm finish that moves from corn sweet to a subtle sweet anise - no alcohol burn to speak of just a pleasant sweet warmth
Overall:I was underwhelmed with the first pour but at every subsequent pour it showed me something new and entertaining. A balanced easy drinking kind of Bourbon. It really doesn't do anything wrong and it's finish seems to always invite another sip.

Review from spun_cookie (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1228, Created:20080808195652, Updated:20090527161635)
Purchased at:
Info on this bottle:This is the Old Charter 10yr from 1992
Nose:Leather and old wet oak. Some dry vanilla, little light machined aluminum to it. Some apricot, and candy apple
Taste:Crab apples, vanilla, age??? bottle has been around a while???. Some oak and leather
Finish:Vanilla and cream. ??? the finish is better as time goes on??? little light burn??? (86 proof and all)
Overall:Good bourbon, not great. For $15 a bottle, nothing to scoff at. You can tell it spent some time in aluminum tanks. Not too much, but more than you would want all the time

Review from JoeBourbon (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 297, Created:20051021100111, Updated:20090527161706)
Purchased at:Midtown Liquors, Nashville Tennessee
Purchased for:22.00
Info on this bottle:Old Charter Louisville 10 Year Old Decanter from the 80's
Nose:Somewhat alcoholic initially. Needs time. Hints of rye spice. Alcohol subsides in subsequent pours.
Taste:Alcohol subsides. Not overpowering. Nice somewhat spicy component. Nice mouth feel. Not overly complex but balanced.
Finish:Medium length finish. Subtle sweetness on the finish.
Overall:Good bourbon --- not top shelf --- but very nice.

Review from bourbonv (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 71)
Purchased at:Acquired as one of several from United Distillers employee benefit
Info on this bottle:Standard U.S. Market version
Proof Of this Bottle:86
Nose:Sweet caramel corn candy with medium oak. Slightly floral - roses maybe.
Taste:Cool with no alcohol burn. Very sweet vanilla and corn with oak heading into the finish. What is suprising is the lack of rye spiciness.
Finish:Sweet corn with oak and leather. It is long lasting and pleasant
Overall:A good bourbon for any occasion. Aged in brick warehouses, this bourbon does not have the barrel characteristics of a ten year old bourbon from other distilleries. This makes for a pleasant mixture of grain flavor (corn) and oak.
