    A few years ago, someone (I think it was Jeff) labeled that flavor as "acetone" and got a lot of agreement.

    Personally, I do think I taste the flavor everyone complains about, but it just doesn't bother me. I enjoy EC12, very much.

    I've probably had half a dozen and liked them all. If it wasn't so cheap here I'd ask you to send your dregs to me.

    I have definately tasted that metallic taste with EC12. It is a good value for mixing if you do that sort of thing.

    EC12 isn't my favorite either, but I prefer it immeasurably over EC18...

    Reading the above comments Brian I would say don't even go there...

    Go for something you'll know you will get on with. EC 12 or 18 is not "bad" Whiskey but it's not for everyone, (certainly not for me!) and if I were to be so bold, I would say not for you!

    I really like EC 12. If you go by the number of bottles I have emptied since I got into bourbon a little more than a year ago, it is one of my favorites. I do think the first bottles were better and I have slowed down. I think that one of the things I liked about the earlier bottles was that the 'strange' taste was more prominent than in later bottles, not less. The bottle I have open now is good. I might have some after work tonight.

    I'm not a fan of EC 12 or EC18.....

    Nor am I wild about Eagle Rare 10. I have a bottle of ER17... I hope I like it better.

    Well, I had a bottle of EC 12 and EWSB and drank them both without a problem. I do think the EWSB was a bit better than the EC though.
