    AAA 10-star Old Label question.

    I found a small store that had about 30 375-ml bottles of AAA 10-star with the old yellow label. The date on the bottom was 95. They are about $4 each. I got one to try and it's not bad. Is it about the same as the new AAA 10-star? Was it made before Buffalo Trace? It also had one bottle of 10-year so I guess it was sold here in SC at some time in the past. Any advise on whether they are worth getting or should I stick with the new 10-star.

    If you like them and think the price is good, get them. Same advice I'd give for anything.

    At that price, it comes out to 8$ a fifth, which is pretty hard to beat.

    And if you get a lot of them, you have a ton of great decanting bottles to have around

    Ancient Age has always been made at Buffalo Trace Distillery and was made there before Sazerac owned it.
