That should help. I hope they know their stuff. Bourbon is a very complex subject and the folks most likely to be interested in what you write are right here (and not an easy crowd to impress). We are fortunate to have a couple very knowledgable people here who manage to keep the rest of us on track, so to speak. The bottom line (for me) is everyone's experience with something like taste, is, ultimately, unique to them. It may or may not follow what your article describes to them.Thank you for the insight.
To respond to the otehr question, I won't be writing the article alone, but I am doing a lot of the legwork to get a nice list of 10 bourobs to use in the sampling. Others with the bourbon knowledge will be writing the majority of the article.
