I thougt word was (not in this thread) that forgiven would take RBs place
I just finally bought a bottle of the WT-03RB, my first Rare Breed. I guess I'm just used to dusties more than some, but I just can't get over the alcohol taste to it. A nice splash of water knocked it down, but the "heat" in this isn't like the current OGD 114 or some of my old S-W Old Weller Antique, which is similar proof. There's just something that reminds me of some of the biting cheaper bourbons I've had, and it's not a good thing.
More on this as I change my mind!
I suspect that bite may come from using younger Bourbon in the mix. That is a characteristic I find in some of the younger value Bourbons that haven't been rounded off by age.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
i think the new 112 batch is pretty darn good, particularly for low $30's...........but I didnt really care for the older 108 batch
I hate scotch.
