    Not to reveal to much or speak outside this forum's general conversation, but this bourbon lends itself especially well in partnership with marijuana. I think it's a great stoner's bourbon. On more than one occasion, it hit the spot particularly well whilst in this state. I think it has to do with a heightened palate milking out all of the mellow nuance. Delicious!

    I haven't yet tried the SB.
    HA!!! I've never mentioned this type of pairing for fear of getting kicked off SB, but I would be very active in a "What Bourbon pairs with 4-20" thread. They're certainly not all equal. I tend to like lower proof wheaters, like WellerSR, while higher proof high-rye recipes are a no-no.

    I will add that I also enjoy lower proof wheaters, and I usually add a good amount of ice to help combat any dry mouth that I may be experiencing. Also old fashions are extra tasty when kicking back!


    As far as Colonel E.H. Taylor goes.. only have a few bottles of the first run sour mash. I think it hits the mark when I am not sure what to drink.

    Bourbon always did make me feel like a Giant.

    The more I get into this bottle the more I am enjoying it. Like Chefnash said, hits the spot when you're not sure what to drink.

    No burn for 100 proof. a slight sour but more sweet that balances nicely.

    Definitely one to try, possibly to stock when on sale or close-out, but not a true regular drinker for my budget.

    Trying the Single Barrel again tonight, and my opinion still stands it's just 100 proof Buffalo Trace honey barrels. Not a bad thing, but not quite to my tastes like the Sour Mash version.
