My wife found a recipe for bourbon truffles and we're going to make a batch as Holiday goodies for our near and dear.
My grandfather makes Rum Balls every year that are to die for and he uses Bacardi 151 for the high proof so that the rum flavor is really prevalent. I'm wondering whether it would be a better idea to go for a high proofer (which, looking at my collection right now would be a rye-based bourbon -- probably WTRB or Baker's) or go for a wheater, which I think would be more suited for a sweet candy (even though it would be only a 90 proofer). I was thinking WLW SR.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
