I was in a store today and there was a 1.75 L bottle of "Charter Still" 80 proof, the label said Bardstown and there was one of those little patent mark symbols with the date 1974 next to it. Also there was a picture of a pot still in the center of the label. I did a search but didn't turn up this bourbon.
I would have bought it, it had a nice color to it, but it was in a plastic bottle
which looked a bit worse for wear, and the thought crossed my mind that if this has been hanging around for 20 or 30 years, is it still safe to drink it? Does anyone happen to know if anything leaches out of the plastic, or if there is a life expectancy for liquor that is bottled in plastic?
Also wondered if anyone knows anything about the bourbon itself. Tom V
