    Re: rock Hill Farms age

    I checked my bottle that I have in the bunker and there is no age statement on the bottle...I seem to recall reading someplace that is 8 years old.

    Re: rock Hill Farms age

    This question is kinda moot, because of the Single Barrel Method, which basically goes like this-- "It doesn't matter how old the spirit is. When the Master Distiller decides the barrel of spirit has aged to the point where the spirit tastes the way he wants it to taste, it gets bottled."

    It could be 4 years. It could be 12 years. It probably varies widely, depending on the rick-house, and the barrel's location within it. It also varies by year, as the weather in some years ages the spirit more quickly than others.

    Since I've started drinking Blanton's, and certain blended Scotch (*cough* Compass Box *cough*), I haven't been putting as much stock in age statements as I used to...

    That's one theory several SB are a selected age EWSB is 10, ERSB is 10, EC18 is 18, EZBR is 15.

    The age stated single barrels are considerably more variable from year to year or bottling to bottling. This is neither a plus or a minus, just a facet of their uniqueness. Read the reviews here and I beileve that they back me up on this.

    The nas single barrels are much more consistent over time.

    I don't disagree with either one of you picking barrels at their peek of maturity is the best option, irregardless of age. I was just saying I think most have pre set ages that they select. I could be wrong on this. I know WTKS is nas, RHF is nas, what about FRSB?

    Re: rock Hill Farms age

    FRSB is NAS as well. The only time I've seen an age associated with FR juice is their special bottlings like Mariage or the yearly SB's and even then it's not on the label, but on a neck tag.
