8 years old??? Sure about that? Colonel Lee was a Barton distilled product that faded away and appears to have recently been brought back by Sazerac since they bought Barton. It is a bottom shelfer and mostly distributed in 80 proof but The Sazerac web site also shows a 100 proof being distributed in 750ml. I don't know if the current 100 proof is being labelled as a bottled in bond as it used to be? If your bottle is stated as 8 years old I'm guessing you have a 100 proof and private retail bottling from Total Wine perhaps?
Sazerac also distributes Colonel Lee and Tom Moore as a blended "light" whiskey
