We've had a single bottle of Old Charter Bottled In Bond bourbon on the shelf of the store where I work part-time for as long as I've worked there. It only just dawned on me the other day that I've never seen it anywhere else (except a reference on this site's 'Bourbon brands' listing), so I got to looking at the bottle. In rather small print on the back label it states, "This bourbon is 7 years old." That was a bit of a surprise, because I think we all most often assume BIB is 4 years old, though I realize the original law specified that as a minimum for taxation purposes.
Anyway, does anybody know anything about this bourbon? Is it still made? Why is it 7 years old instead of the usual 4?
