    Tastes Change Day To Day?

    Does anyone else find a particular bourbon fantastic one night or most of the time, but mediocre another night?

    Example: I was drinking RYell on the rocks tonight, which usually gives me a rich maple taste I love when a litte ice melts. But that didn't happen tonight, so I poured it out and am enjoying WT101 now.

    Why is that?

    I can't give you a "why", but I can certainly relate to your experience. See here.

    Same here. Sometimes my "taster" is just more "on" than at other times. Also, what I ate previously in the day has an effect. For instance, if I eat something with raw onions in it, even hours later it negatively affects my tasting ability.

    actually tonight is a "perfect" example. Right now I am sampling a little Benchmark...the last time I had it a few months ago I didn't really enjoy it. Tonight I really like it...not sure why...same bottle even.

    Re: Tastes Change Day To Day?

    The other day I was sampling from the bunker and everything tasted dry and bitter. What the %^&*? I finally realized I had seared my tongue on some melted cheese and the sweet buds were all dead. I thought it might be time to end it all, but fortunately I recovered.
    Now everything seems a little on the sweet side. Is this some type of overcompensation that my brain has taken?
