Okay, I'm a newbie to the board. I've been enjoying learning about this new world of bourbons, trying a few of the recommendations of the folks who've posted here.
I've tried a range of different tastes, including Makers Mark, Van Winkle 12 yr reserve and ORVW 10/107, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, and Hirsch Rye.
I've been trying to sort out all the different tastes I'm experiencing, and think that I'm just getting used to the differences in tastes between those heavy on the wheats and those heavy on the rye.
This is probably sacrilige to experienced drinkers, but all these different tastes got me wondering-- do folks ever mix together their pours, to get the right balance of tastes? Sorry if this is a ridiculous question and probably exposes me for an absolute beginner...
