Here's a good story on Buffalo Trace (the distillery):
My only quibble: that "old reliable", citrus as a taste adjective, makes its predictable appearance.
American Pale Ale is citrusy, Chardonnay is citrus-accented but you know so is a lot of sauvignon blanc and pinot grigio! So often gin is just plain "citrus", tequila is, well, citrus, and rum dark or white has, you know, an inevitable hint of citrus. It really does. Yes. I know it through reading a thousand and one descriptions of alcohol taste. Shucks, I'm sure I've used it myself a few times. Needless to add, not just Buffalo Trace, but almost all whiskey I read about is citrus too.
Huey Lewis sang, "I want a new drug". Well, I want a new adjective(s). For liquor taste. Please. Any suggestions? (But if you dare say "smooth" I'll go into the next whiskey warehouse I see and let out a rebel yell).
