Just wondering if there is anyway to determine the ages of the regular FRSB bottlings that I see on shelves since there is no vintage dating.

I don't think so. I know they are in a range of something like 7-10 years, right?

I believe standard Single Barrel is 8 years and the barrel proof single barrel selections are generally in between 9.5 to 10.5 years

Not sure of an exact age, but I do know when they pull barrels they set aside all the older OBSV barrels for potential 1B bottlings. Their website says:

2005 Gold Medal - Best American Whiskey Under 10 Years Old - WHISKY MAGAZINE Best of the Best Awards
2007 Best Bourbon Whiskey: No age WHISKY MAGAZINE World Whiskies Award
2008 Best Bourbon Whiskey: No age WHISKY MAGAZINE World Whiskies Award

So for sure less than 10 in 2005....

I've seen a lot of the barrel proofs between 8 and 9 years.

you can email them with the barrel no. from your bottle and ask, and they will tell you. they did it for me.
