celebrated an anniversary with my wife last night at one of our favorite upscale places. I ordered a flight of bourbons.....my favorite, Bookers, plus two ive wanted to try - Ezra B 12 year, and Noah's Mill.
Tell me what you guys think of my interpretation here: I thought the Noahs and Ezra tasted like different proofs of the same exact whiskey. Then, realizing they are both sourced whiskeys, I figured they likely came from the same distillery originally. And since it is generally assumed Ezra is sourced from HH, maybe KBD got this Noahs from HH too. Any ideas?
I have to say, i didnt really like either. The aftertaste wasnt pleasant. Then I went for the Bookers and realized why I like it so much. Sweet, hot, balanced well without too much woodiness, not tannic, and no lingering aftertaste that makes me want to reach for the glass of water....just drink it and enjoy.
Im interested to see what you guys think on the noahs/ezra idea. I could be way off, but its what I came to last night.
