    Any more in depth notes on the CEHT would be appreciated too.
    Unfortunately, I'm not experienced enough to detect a lot of the different things that I see others post. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to pick up on that soon. I can certainly tell what tastes good to me and I can detect things like heat, burn, spicy, sweet, bitter. At the very least I'm going to start writing notes down from here on out.

    As for the ETL, I remember it being very spicy and bitter. Although I do like some high-rye bourbons like OGD, ETL was just a bit much for me. If you like spicy, high-rye bourbons then you should give it a try. I'll be curious to see what you think of it if you pick up a bottle.

    CEHT had some initial heat and a nice complex finish. I wish I could provide with more detail than that, but I will say it's one of the better bourbons I've tasted to date.

    Thanks for answering as best you could, Jack. I definitely dig OGD 100/114 and other rye heavy bourbons (especially BT), so I should be fairly safe with the ETL, even if it's not quite as sweet as I was hoping for.

    I'll hopefully post notes on the ETL in about a week and a half... crossing my fingers it's in stock when I get to Cali.

    The AAA 10 Year reminds me a lot of Blanton's at about 1/2 the cost! The proof isn't as high but the taste is very similar.

    Pour of BT, getting low in the bottle and yeast is taking over the flavor profile.

    Started with VOB BIB and then followed up with EC12. Nice summer evening in Indiana.

    I brought a 200ml nip of WT 12 split along on a trip to PA and it is hitting the spot.
