    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Interesting. Here is Sauceguide's take on this whiskey:

    "Very light and supple, opens up nicely with butterscotch, caramel, gingerbread, caffe latte, cocoa powder, nutmeg, expresso, and a light oaky garnish".

    Charlie Thomason, in describing the hallmarks of Willett's whiskeys, mentioned their fruity aroma (ripe apple, he said). This 15 year old does not seem to have this taste or nose. However Sauceguide's description of Johnny Drum 12-year-old states, "Mellow vanilla, creme caramel, baked apple...". If these whiskeys are Willet's, maybe the 12 year old still has one of the signatures whereas the wood in the 15 year old might obscure it.

    It looks as though you and I should concoct a secret handshake. I share in every particular the unpopular opinion that you expressed in regard to Blanton's vs. Buffalo Trace.

    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    If you care to discuss what bourbon you are drinking now try conducting a search and see if there is a tasting notes post on it already in the tastings forum. If there is a post on it already, make a reply giving us your impressions of it. If there isn't one, feel free to use the following template (just copy and paste it) to write up your own reviews. Even if you are not the best writer or taster, using the template makes it easy. Plus it sparks interest in the tastings forum and adds to the board as well as opening up a dialogue about a specific pour. Thanks
