Just found this forum over the week-end and it looks great. I live in British Columbia, Canada and now am starting to enjoy good bourbon. I have been a rum fan all my life but the new brother in law (from Kentucky) introduced me to bourbon.
I started off with MM and coke then Blantons SB for sipping. All good except the Blantons was a little much for a newbie. However I kept up and found Van Winkle 10 year and George Dickel 12 (sorry but I love that whisky).
Currently trying Buffalo Trace since it was recommended in a post here about bourbon for novices.
I like the smooth flavour transition of Buffalo Trace but..the finish seems to have this 'earthy' taste that I can't seem to get past. Are all Buffalo Trace products similar with that 'earthy' finish?
