Old Charter 10 is a release from Sazerac focused on an old label owned elsewhere. This bourbon is bottled without an age statement and at 43% ABV. Let's dive in.
Very sweet and fruity - cream, molasses, mild cinnamon, rich "wheater fruits" like I pick up in W12 - plum, mild jammy raspberry, vanilla sweetness, etc
Medium mouthfeel, Im guessing this has a little age. From the nose I was thinking VoB BiB since thats a fruity young buck but this is older I think since theres fruit and creamy sweetness still but some lingering woody notes and a good deal of clove, molasses and brown sugar coming in to balance.
The finish is medium long, no apparent heat - just sweet. Its a very sweet and fruity dram but Im glad to see it start to falter in the finish. Mild woody notes and dusty leather, clove, oatmeal, faint pepper all balance the initial sweets overload from the nose and initial palate.
Overall, this isn't anything amazing, but it has quite a bit going for it.
