    I think the Gold Label is 4YO and the White is 6YO.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    The white is def 6. I see nothing that tells me how long it is aged on the gold. Weird how the old HH might be aged less than regular HH.

    Gold is NAS, which in this case means 4.

    i wouldve sworn my last gold one (tossed out the bottle last week) said 4 years on it somewhere.

    theyre both good and unbeatable for their $10 price point.

    i swear that the gold + white ones mixed 50/50 would give you EW BIB. whites a bit smoother, but gold a bit younger/harsher. im not sure an amateur could tell much difference between the two. and strangely, i think the 4 year gold tastes more like HH's fighting cock 6 year than the white 6 year does.

    you cant go wrong either way. last month i got one of each to do side by sides. I prefer a little harshness, so i think the gold might be a bit better to me, but hell, theres only about 50 cents difference between the two, so get both and see for yourself.

    I've had the HH White but not the EW White. Thought they were essentially the same juice but have noticed that EW is about $5 more per handle. What do you get for the extra bucks?

    Are these new offerings? I've never seen them in WA and a few of my favorite online retailers don't seem to have them either.
