I was just looking at the reviews of Buffalo Trace Bourbon and noticed it is indicated as 9-years-old. Buffalo Trace is actually NAS but we, let's say, have it on good authority that it's 9-years-old. At least that was the claim when it was launched a decade ago. Is it still?
I don't know if we've done this with other NAS products where we have the age 'on good authority,' but I notice we don't do it with Maker's Mark.
My proposal would be that NAS products should be officially NAS in the data tables, although there is nothing wrong with the review stating, "distillery sources say the whiskey is at least 9-years-old."
I apologize in advance if this is an old subject I somehow missed.
