    Re: BOTM 2/13: Old Charter 101

    I am a huge fan of Ol Charter. Has a flavor I have always enjoyed. I was in a store in Rochester yesterday calling on some accounts, and low and behold, there was a half a gallon of charter 101, 22 bucks. I got one. I have drank it in ky, and enjoyed it. I just smelled the bottle last night and yep, like its brothers it has that classic, candy bourbon nose to it. I am sure I will poor some tonight.

    Re: BOTM 2/13: Old Charter 101

    So I just acquired som OC 101 bottled in the 70s. I have never had OC so I figure I should start with the modern version first. But then I live in Idaho. So may need to have my broker send me some.

    There was a 101 proof Old Charter in the 1970s?

    The bourbon this thread is talking about is actually Charter 101 (no old). What does your bottle look like?

    Well, I may be wrong. It happens from time to time, my wife can verify. I will head to the office in a little bit and check it out again. Sorry about being off topic. The header clearly states OLD Charter 101.

    No, not off topic at all. I had just never heard of an Old Charter 101 proof from the 1970s. I'm interested in learning more about it.

    Right now I am doubting myself. So hold on to that until I get back to the bunker.

    Josh it's Old Charter 100 proof followed by another shot. I remember that from the '70s.

    I stand corrected. I have some OC 10 year 86 proof from the 70s.

    Mystery solved. I think Charter 101 popped up after Sazerac took possession of the Charter brand from United in the late 90s (99?). There was a 7 year old charter Bottled-in-Bond for quite some time, but I honestly don't know how far back it goes. Probably that far, though.
