    Rowan's Creek Age Statement

    Has anyone else noticed something missing on the latest bottling? There is no "12 year old" statement. The whiskey is still unique and delicious with that nutty spiced quality and is a great value. I'm just looking for insight. Has the whiskey changed? Was it erroneously labeled to begin with?

    Re: Rowan's Creek Age Statement

    As supplies have tightened, non-distiller producers like the bottlers of Rowan's Creek have had trouble sourcing the whiskey they need. The stuff sold as a 12-year-old probably was labeled correctly, but they couldn't sustain it as a 12-year-old so rather than state a lower age, they just went NAS. Happily, according to your testimony, it's still good.

    That's the most reasonable explanation. I'll side by side them sometime soon, possibly this Saturday to get an idea of differences in the end result.
