Re: “Bourbon by the Bay

"One is that it be aged for at least two years in new oak barrels"

Ummm, incorrect. According the the official Code of Federal Regulations, there is no minimum aging time in a new "charred" oak barrel in order to be labeled a bourbon. Here is the official definition:

"Whisky produced in the U.S. at not exceeding 80% alcohol by volume (160 proof) from a fermented mash of not less than 51 percent corn and stored at not more than 62.5% alcohol by volume (125 proof) in charred new oak containers"

Now, bourbon aged 1 day wouldn't be very good but it would in fact still be bourbon as long as it met the other criteria specified in the CFR.
