I am really new here and pardon me if I am posting in the wrong spot.
Also being very new to bourbon, I wanted to share an observation and was curious if others felt the same?
Short story is I picked up a bottle of Knob Creek and the first pour I really enjoyed like crazy. Then a few days later had another, but just didn't get that "wow" thing. So, I decided to stop and get some Gentleman Jack (I know - not bourbon) and really liked it. I went back to Knob Creek the other night and it has that "wow" thing for me again!
Do you think it could be from my inexperienced palate? Could it be that Gentleman Jack, while smooth as hell and good in its own right, is not too complex and Knob Creek is just that different and more flavorful? I can't imagine what other explanation there is, but it was kind of exciting to taste the difference between Whiskey and bourbon. And growing my taste.
