    I haven't see any reference to an actual age but SpiritReview guessed around 8 yrs. It's definitely not 4 years old as it lacks the young profile.

    Re: rock Hill Farms age

    Aren't they all single barrel expressions?

    I have always thought they were 8-10 yrs....

    Are you implying that single barrel expressions are older?

    IMHO, this whiskey is so refined that my guess would be that it is around 9-10 years old. Maybe even older.

    I am implying that since they are single barrel expressions, the age may vary greatly between bottles.

    I had a bottle of that and I'll bet it said on there how old it was but I can't recall it for the life of me.

    Me to, I could've swore there was an age statement on RHF.
    None on the old BIB but isn't there an age on the newer ones?

    Maybe it's only stated on the special bottlings you've been getting.

    Re: rock Hill Farms age

    There's a thread here somewhere that Ken Weber (formerly at BT) discussed the RHF bottling history. The removal of the cheesy gold chain, the old note in the box proclaiming anyone purchasing RHF was certainly a con-a-sewer of fine bourbon, etc etc. He said those cheesy gold chain BIB bottles were averaging 10 years of age and more recent stuff approximately 8 years. At the first annual Bourbon Taster of The Year competition, RHF was one of the samples and I believe we accepted 8 years old as the "correct" answer for it.
