This bourbon was distilled and bottled at the Old Crow Distillery while under ownership of National Distillers. The brand was purchased in 1987 by Jim Beam and the distillery was closed. The current product is distilled at one (or both) of the Jim Beam distilleries.
Palate is kinda nice although light and fleeting; basically a watery sweetness. And though it's pleasing at first, the whole experience quickly gets very alcohol-y, and there's the problem. This one's fine to stay back in history.
Light amber color. Very traditional bourbon palate to me, with a lot of vanilla. The palate is very thin and watery, with hints of oak and vanilla. The finish lingers a little, but not that satsifying. 1978 bottling. [3/10/13]
