    AAA-10 Year sighting in VA

    At the Vienna ABC store...750s and 1.75s, plenty of both left. The 1.75s were $26, I think.

    Yowzers. This is excellent stuff. Balanced, a bit sweeter than I normally like (almost an anejo rum-like edge to the finish), but balanced, complex, and ever so affordable. I bought 2 1.75Ls the other day. I might need to get a couple more before it all swirls down the fashionable brand sink.

    Spirits writer Jim Murray would agree with you. He said that AAA was one of the 5 best bourbons in the world.

    I can't help but thinking that cocktailians would enjoy this in a sidecar-type drink.

    Dating AAA-10 Year bottles

    I'm trying to put together a vertical of AAA 10year and would like a little help dating a couple of bottles I've found.

    -80proof 1990s?
    On the left is a tamper-resistant plastic capped bottle with a rounded corner square bottle. It is 80 proof, stated in bottom left corner of front.

    -86proof 1980s?
    On the right is a strip stamp, non tamper-resistant cap with less rounded corners on a square bottle. It is 86 proof, stated in bottom left corner of front.

    Since Ken Weber stated that "86 proof is the current iteration of AAA 10 Year," earlier in this thread and that the proof statement is left justified not centered, I assume that not even the newer of these 2 is current issue.

    Any ideas on the approximate dates on these 2 bottles?

    -Roger

    I can tell just by looking at these bottles that they were produced over a decade ago. We have changed the labels and bottles a while back and these pre-date the change.
