Do any of you seasoned bourbon veterans prefer bourbon at or above certain proofs over others?
The more I drink bourbon, the more it seems that bourbons under 100 proof just don't taste as good as those at 100+.
I really like the following:
[This is my current rotation]
Booker's - 126.8 PR
Baker's - 107 PR
Knob Creek - 100 PR
WT 101 - 101 PR
WT Rare Breed - 108.4 PR
I used to really like the following:
Eagle Rare Single Barrel 10 YO - 90 PR
Buffalo Trace - 90 PR
Elijah Craig 12 YO - 94 PR
EW Single Barrel - 94 PR
It just seems to me that anything below 100 PR is watered down, both in taste and "feel" in the mouth - watery versus "oily".
Anyone understand what I'm trying to say?
