    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Sipping on my first go at the SB blend, like it better than OWA but will have to do a head to head with W12..

    When we first did the MM tour, they only sampled MM & M46. When we went back a couple of months ago, they were also sampling their white dog, which struck me as a big mistake after tasting the samples. The standard MM didn't taste as though it had aged enough to set it far apart from their white dog and that gave a big advantage to M46 as the finishing added a sorely-needed dimension to the flavor. I don't think many others noticed, or at least they didn't give any hint they did. Most people didn't even finish their samples, which we thought was odd. I'm not knocking MM - it's not bad whiskey. I just think it could be a lot better if they would give it some time.

    To do so would be to admit they hadn't been putting forth their best effort all this time.

    Nobody tows a tighter company line than MM. 5.5yr old, wheat grained bourbon is the best bourbon possible. Anything else is at best a curiosity (MM46) or a lesser product (everything else).

    Gonna have some EWB in a few.... I'm always surprised just how good it is, given the price point (I may have sneaked a few sips already).

    And I agree, it is a shame that MM doesn't offer one extra-aged expression. There's something good hidden in the standard MM, and like you all have said, it just seems to need a bit more time in the barrel.

    I'm finishing my first SB bottle. It's been open for about 4 months and has been pretty tasty. I'm going to go through an OWA pick from TPS before blending another bottle 2:1 standard OWA.
