I finally cracked open the AAA 10-year last night and I'm trying to decipher if I just got a bad bottle or if it's just not to my liking. I know it's high-rye but I love things like OGD and FR1B OBSV, so I don't think it's the amount of rye. It had a really strange aftertaste, unlike any bourbon I've ever had before (I've never had Blanton's which I know is similar). It almost tasted like something had gone wrong. But before I jump to that conclusion I wanted to ask you guys if AAA has a profile that's pretty different from other bourbons?
Tonight I'm going to open up a new bottle of AAA 10-star just to see if I detect a similar taste.
