    Anybody had Ancient Age lately?

    Since Irene messed up my fishing trip, I stayed home and got about neck deep in a bottle of the standard 3 year old Ancient age 80 proof. I have not had it in a while. The stuff was great. Lots of buttery bourbon flavors. I am convinced BT has it down pat. Everything they put out is first rate. If you want a good cheap, 10 bucks a liter around the house bourbon, you cannot beat this one.

    It's been about a year since I last had Ancient Age but I really having similar thoughts. In the price/age range it's not too bad.

    You nailed it with the buttery description. There is a long sweet finish too... just really nice juice, especially for the money.

    I'd buy it if I could find it for $10 a liter. It's around $16 at my usual haunts, and I'm more inclined to spend a few bucks more to get Ritt BIB or FC 103.

    Not available here but I'm not a fan of the pint I bought in CA -- thin, young and too much corn. For only a couple bucks more a handle, McAfee's Benchmark seems a better budget BT offering.

    Re: Anybody had Ancient Age lately?

    I had told my wife that I wanted to try AAA 10 year if I could ever get my hands on it. She saw the regular AA at the local liquor store and bought a handle thinking she found what I was looking for. At first I thought she wasted $20 but after I cracked it open I was pleasantly surprised! I would take this over Evan Williams any day. I have never been disappointed in what BT has produced.

    I never bothered with AA untill I read this thread. I went and picked up a bottle this afternoon for around $8.00 and change. I think it's better than the AAA 10 star.

    I picked up an AAA 10yo a couple of months ago in KY, worth the 19 bucks I paid for it.

    The 10 years old is way better imho than the buffalo trace. And it is supposed to be 10 years as well right?

    A 1: The 10 year is BT.

    A 1: When the label says 10yo then it is 10 years old.
