This bourbon is aged for ten years in oak barrels made from trees harvested in East Asia. An oak that takes root where many other trees cannot, Quercus mongolica is heralded for its ability to strengthen the earth beneath it, survive drought, and thrive in full sun. This bourbon honors the fortitude of those proud oaks. From the forests of Mongolia, these mighty oaks became the barrels in which this whiskey matured.

Old Charter Oak
Mongolian Oak delivers a nose of pecan, caramel and pine. Sip this bourbon and discover notes of cedar, clove, butterscotch and dark chocolate, with a finish of black pepper and smoked oak.
"Surprisingly soft and decidedly inviting, making the whiskey hard to put down." - Drink Hacker
"Interesting and intriguing flavors." - Whisky Advocate
Distilled from time-proven methods, Charter 101 has an amber color to go with its big taste and bold proof. A little water will open up the flavor of this whiskey that shares qualities with the other Old Charter varieties, but it will go great for a Manhattan or cocktail of your choice.
An honest and traditional taste. Bold and classic, with hints of honey, raisin, peppercorns, caramelized nuts. Finishes with a long, warming pepper, vanilla, and burnt sugar fade.

Rating: 95.5–Jim Murray's 2013 Whisky Bible
This 80 proof whiskey has a certain balance to it that’s hard to beat. With a full body and complex flavors, this bourbon is easily enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in your favorite cocktail. An all-around solid whiskey that any bourbon drinker can appreciate.
A complex, well-balanced nose that shows both dry, peppery notes and a rich honey sweetness. The palate features some tingly spice notes and mellow toffee, very long and very satisfying finish.
