Old Medley Bourbon 12 Years Old

Old Medley Bourbon 12 Years Old
was the first media outlet to tell you about the new Old Medley 12 Year Old Bourbon.

Now, we’re the first to review this very rare 12 year old expression of Wathen’s Bourbon in the video above and in the tasting notes below.

While there is no age statement on Wathen’s Bourbon, Old Medley bears an age statement and delivers one of the best flavors we’ve ever tasted in a 12 year old Bourbon. Old Medley is the same recipe as Wathen’s, but with more age.

With only 2,500 cases being distributed in this one time release, Old Medley is one of the more limited releases you’ll see in 2013.

For a suggested retail price of $49.99, it is worth every penny and if you can find it definitely pick this one up.‘s Tom Fischer joined Charles Medley, President of Charles Medley Distillery to taste this Bourbon. The conversation became so enjoyable that Tom took out his pocket cam for an unexpected interview to learn more about Old Medley and Charles too.

As a 7th Generation Distiller, Charles is full of stories, knowledge and experience in the Bourbon industry. He brings all that character and expertise into one bottle in Old Medley 12 Year Old Bourbon.

Depending on where you live in the USA, you can find the Old Medley either now or very soon in markets that carry Wathen’s Bourbon.

Check your favorite liquor store and you may be lucky enough to find it in Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts and other states.

    Its my understanding Wathen’s Bourbon is sourced from an unknown distillery and distributed by Frank-Lin Distillers. The Medley family retains ownership of the brand. Did the interview discuss the actual source of this bourbon? Is the Old Medley 12 sourced from the distillery as Wathen’s?
