So I'm completely new to the world of bourbon. I actually was recommended by a friend to try Makers Mark since it was one the best widely available bourbons in its price range. I'll be honest and say the burn was a little much but I drank it straight without ice or water. After looking around seems this is supposed to be a pretty easy drinking bourbon so we'll see if my palate becomes accustomed to the taste.
I do have one question because it basically is the reason I wanted to try bourbon and became a member of this site. I was interested because I'm a huge craft beer fan and have had a few bourbon barrel aged beers but never had the chance to try bourbon so I was sure what flavors came from the bourbon. My favorite being Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout that I researched and the best I could get is that it is aged in 17 year old Heaven Hill barrels for 10 months. Does anyone know which bourbon this is? Thanks for the help!
