As I think about the short debate over breathing bourbon that went on in relation to my tating notes about Evan Williams 23 year old bourbon, I would like to see what other who have not necessarily seen that post's opinions are.
The contention is that allowing a pur of bourbon to breath will change it flavors, let you experience more of what is in there and, in my opinion, have a more thorough experience in drinking the bourbon. I feel that the older bourbons I have in my collection mostly improve on thier sweeter aromas and flavors when allowed even fifteen minutes of just sitting and being admired and thought about. (I think I may look into to Tao of bourbon).
I guess I just sit and reflect on the day when i am enjoying a good pour and the changes in the bourbon reflect the changes in the day for me.
I would like to know from all of you out there if you think that allowing bourbon to breath increases your enjoyment of your drink or not. Please let me know.
