    that explains it!
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    I wasn't a big fan of Bushmills 16 yr malt in the first place (I like Blackbush, haven't tried 10 yr malt or 21 yr malt), and thought it had a mild cat pee note on its own, but a little chocolate really accentuated it.

    Re: Can Certain Foods Negatively Affect Bourbons Taste?

    It must be the power of suggestion, but for the last week or so every thing I eat tastes like bourbon to me. Not that I'm complaining even one tiny bit.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
