Hey bluesbassdad, i am currently having a little taste of a few different bourbons. My buddy is a long time bourbon drinker, and has brought round a few of his favourites to let me taste. After trying the Knob Creek and Buffalo Trace, i had to recommend them. You really aren't a fan of JBW are you? haha, Personally i like it, it's quite a nice bourbon to mix, and for the price it can't be that bad. Hey, it must be doing something right, after all it is the worlds best selling bourbon.
