    Just FYI, ETL is an Age International brand, not Sazerac, so Age would have to make any proof change decision.

    Great post, Josh. Enjoyed your recounting of the evening. I'm all on board with the tasting story. And you know what? I don't want to taste blackberries in my bourbon!

    Yes, thanks for sharing! Blackberries in bourbon is like blackberries on pancakes. Just give me plain ol' maple syrup!

    Esters are a recognized part of the chemical make-up of many matured whiskeys and other beverages. A typical description of an ester to a layman is that it has a fruity smell. Of course, as in anything, one can take it too far. "This has notes of long-stored hay lead pencil, slightly over the hill peach, a soupcon of grandma's lard tin and that ineffable scent you get when strolling the seashore in New England near where they sell salt water taffee". Yup, that nails it.

    I can't recall which writer it was who made a drollery about how often picnics appear in cookbook directions, e.g. "This herb-scented roast chicken when cold is the perfect main dish for your next picnic". The writer wrote, one would think the hills and dales of the land are covered with the picnickers the whole year.

    Kind of the same thing, you can take something too far. But hey sure I get a note of some kind of black fruit in bourbon, sometimes - more in the dusties than today, but that's another story.
