    Old charter 8 year old

    What are the opinions on this at $14.99? It does say 8 year old on it
    Life is too short to drink bad bourbon and smoke bad cigars.

    A bit thin for my taste. More of a mixer but better mixers can be had for less.

    Its not bad, but it is a bit light and thin for my tastes.

    If I started my day with a pint glass of bourbon on the rocks, this would be in the rotation.

    For 14.99 you should buy it and figure out if you like it.

    All the other stuff, mash bill, origin, similarities to other bourbons, . . . can be found with a search here or on the interwebs, but you won't know for sure how great or bad it is until you give it a try.

    Charter's light style isn't appealing to me and a few more years age doesn't change that, especially at 80 proof. At $14.99 I have a choice of BIBs so I'll pick one of those.

    Never tried it but I've a couple bottles of the 10 yr it's thin and just MEH. Can't imagine the 8 yr would be any better.

    Is there any OC 8 left (besides dusties) that's actually 8 years old?

    Sure, anything labeled as 8 years old is at least 8 years old.
