    Charter 101, sightings?

    I tried to search for the thread but the search function wasn't working for me.

    Somebody mentioned something awhile ago about a new OC 101 coming out. IS this a part of the BTAC, or somethings else? has anybody tried it? and most importantly, where can I find it?

    Old Charter 101 is a new brand, it's been out since last spring.
    I haven't seen it in MI but the Buffalo Trace salesman said it is coming to MI.

    OC 101 has been available here in Northern KY for about six months or so.

    My opinion hasn't changed since back then: save your money, there are better choices out there.

    Thanks for the advice and the link. If its reasonable I'll give it a try, for the sake of curiosity if for no other reason.

    It's available in Louisiana. I purchased a bottle in Delta.

    I don't know if this is supposed to replace the Classic 90 or not - but it's a lot different than I recall the old 12 year.

    Yes, I agree, it is different.

    Just a follow-up. As another thread shows, I was able to find some at Gay's in Fremont, IN, a short drive off I-69 N of Ft. Wayne, IN. A relatively short trip from Detroit (at least a shorter one than the trip to Louisville or Lexington). I'll report back with tasting thoughts when I get to it. Still have a number of open bottles to deal with.

    Re: Charter 101, sightings?

    Finally finished off the bottle. It was pretty mediocre as a sipper. Kind of like cherry cough syrup with a slightly woody finish.

    As a mixer it was ok, tho. Good in sours, manhattans and makes a very nice KY Coffee.

    Don't think I'll get it again tho.

    I just picked up a bottle. At 21.97 it's pretty cheap by MI standards. If I don't care for it for sipping I'll mix it. It'll be interesting to taste it alongside some comparably priced bourbons.

    Re: Charter 101, sightings?

    I bought a bottle last year. I was so-so, at best. Probly wont get another one. It's priced like WT101, and a couple of bucks more expensive than OW Antq 107, and Old Granddad BIB, and it was not as good as any of those to me.......
