I have not had the PHC 2011, however, I have had Angel's Envy and Maker's 46. With scotch, the barrel finish of a cognac barrel (or just french oak) and sherry butt or port pipe often delivers a lot of flavor to the base spirit because it seems scotch is just a bit more delicate to begin with. With bourbon it just seems like barrel finishing just produces an off-tasting flavor that never really integrates with the spirit. Anyone other thoughts on this? I think the bourbon just overpowers the sherry or french oak influence and it just tastes off, instead of adding something to the product. I love Glendronach 12 and Compass Box Oak Cross, but I just can't get into the "finished" bourbons.
