    Re: 3 Bourbons for a beginner: Redux


    I'd like to get a recommendation for a bourbon that has a good ratio, or balance, of highest proof with the smoothest taste. I'm looking for something to surprise me more than the Woodford Reserve did, something that drops your draw and makes you suspicious that the proof printed on the bottle is accurate.

    I humbly suggest Old Rip Van Winkle 107, 10 y/o.

    For my initial impressions of this fine bottling, back when I was so new I still read, and believed, labels when I selected bourbon ( ), go here.

    Yours truly,

    Old Rip Van Winkle at 107 proof is delicious and smooth, as is Weller Centennial at 100 proof.
