...for a long, long time.
I had thought that for a spirit to be called 'bourbon', it has to be aged at least two years under all of the stipulations that we all know...
BUT, under the actual law - it need not be aged at all. So - in effect - White Dog that follows all of the rules is bourbon...
BUT, part of the rule states, "Bourbon must be aged in new, charred oak barrels. ", yet...it need not be aged at all. Is that not odd?
Here's the actual law.
So, it says that bourbon must be aged, but then there's no age statement...so...if it must be aged, for how long? One hour?
