    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    To my taste Grand Dad is a leaner style but that may be due to yeast as well as higher rye content.

    I agree - VOB tastes a bit fuller and "darker" to me, if that makes sense...

    That actually does. Earlier, I meant to mention how 'bright' OGD Bonded tastes to me, in a good way (I think it's the light orange/citrus undertone that does it).

    Maybe leaner is a better way to describe it. The bite that I sense is probably more of the rye because I have noticed the same flavor in other higher rye bourbons which tends to be my preferred flavor profile. I just know it seems smoother to me and I enjoy it more. But, both are excellent, as are other BIB options that I have tried.

    Tried a head-to-head between M&M80 5yo (1980) and WT80 (1994). I'm surprised at the similarity - they both have a tobacco-dominant flavor (or maybe leather with smoke), combined with pepper for the WT80 and sherry for the M&M. These both came from stores lacking a/c. I believe I like the M&M a bit better.

    Yeah, that's it, Barton has more of a dark fruit, fig like impression compared to Grand Dad.
