Review from Dump Bucket (BourbonEnthusiast Review ID 1539, Created:20090416185836, Updated:20090517202346)
Purchased at:DC someplace
Purchased for:$15 I think
Info on this bottle:1979 90 Proof Prime, no age statement
Nose:Very, very similar to the 80 proof 7 yr, but thinner with a little more citrus. They may have increassed the proof to offset the lack of years. I would guess 4-6 yrs in that area.
Taste:Taste is very close. You have a very hard time telling them apart, but there is a slim addition of citrus and a drop of vanilla... but if you did not have them side-by-side, you would never know
Finish:A little citrus and a little less vanilla again compaired to the 80 proof 7 yr ... but that would be it...
Overall:A very close 2nd to the 7 yr 80 proof from 1977. I would guess it is 2 yrs younger and a little blend of newer distilled juice.
