The only premium Bourbon Sam's Club (one of my favorite stores since I'm such a cheapskate) sells locally is Woodford Reserve, so I picked up a bottle. I found it to be a very dissapointing spirit. It has a slightly medicinal taste and unimaginative pallatial complexity. Or maybe I was just in a sour mood because the Kansas Jayhawks tanked. Interesting bottle though...

It burns me knowing now that for the about the same amount of money I could have gotten Wathen's, which seems to be turning into my favorite-- but one needs to broaden ones horizons and try new stuff, in the quest for knowledge.
