    Re: Changing Tastes Changing the Taste of Bourbon

    Actually, EC12yo is not a single barrel bourbon. It may be considered a "Small Batch" bourbon, but I can't remember off the top of my head. For what it's worth, EC12 is a bourbon who's taste changes dramatically with my mood. I can't quite put my finger on when or why but sometimes I can't stand it and other times I can't get enough of it. I do however always get that menthol flavor you describe. I kinda like it

    There shouldn't be a lot of variation from one bottle of EC12 to the next. There are a lot of factors that can make things taste different to us. And personal tastes change too. EC12 also, from posts here, seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it brand.

    That's what I found too. That menthol flavour is what realy draws my attention to it, and gives HH bottles it's identity. This bottle just 'seems' to be a bit more complex and less immediately enjoyable. Funnily enough however, I bought a bottle of EW7 as a quick pour, and found it much more of an easy drink than the EC12.
