BT has been unavailable here for about 1 year. I remember having it a year ago and it being great bourbon. A month ago a bought a bottle of Blantons SB and enjoyed it a lot, read some posts here about the batch being a good one.
Yesterday once BT was in stock I stocked up...and I was very surprised on the profile. The profile taste was very similar to Blantons SB. I actually liked it as much as the Blantons, being a little less sweet and less creamy.
My question is...has BT always had similar notes to Blantons? Did this batch of BT mature in a similar environment to Blantons and get similar profile? Or...my palate 1 year ago didn't pick up those notes and BT was always this way, only my palate has changed?
