    Stagg & Old Charter

    Are these the same mashbills? A couple of times, usually on first taste of the Stagg, I am reminded, fleetingly, of OC 12. I like OC 12 just fine, but that hasn't happened with any other bourbon. Just curious.

    George T. Stagg and Old Charter come from BT Mash Bill #1, same as Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare.

    Re: Stagg & Old Charter

    That's interesting. I've always thought of OC as one of the most distinctive tasting bourbons out there, and I've never made any connection between OC and ER, despite that they are two pretty common pours for me. Thanks.

    Re: Stagg & Old Charter

    Thanks for the top secret information, Ken!

    I am surprised though. I had understood that Old Charter was from a very high corn mashbill. Chuck Couwdrey's book says more than 80% corn. Is this true? Much as I would like to know please don't tell any real secrets.

    And what other bourbons are made from what other mashbills? If that is not asking too much...

    I have to be very careful, but suffice it to say that Chuck is a pretty smart guy!

    Sounds like we need a bonded 10yr Old Charter to replace our beloved Eagle Rare 101.

    Also interesting that I had chosen the 12yr Old Charter as my new house pour, now that the Eagle Rare 101 was not readily available.

    I don't supposed you'd be able to confirm (or deny) my suspicion that AAA, Elmer T Lee and Rock Hill Farms are from a common mashbill as well (#2, perhaps?)?

    Ken posted this in a different post.

    "BT mashbill #2 (AAA) also produced Blanton's, Elmer T. Lee, Rock Hill Farms, Hancock's, and couple others."

    Thanks BrewCrew,
    I thought I had seen something like this under Ken's name, but I couldn't be sure as my memory is, is, is, ?
    I am going to write this down before I forget what your post was about.

    Ditto - we love OC, especially the 12 year but never connected it with ER. Ought to do a side by side!

    On another OC note - is OC's distribution getting more limited? It seems like we used to have no trouble finding it when travelling through MD, but recently one stray 1.75L OC 8 yo was all we turned up.
