    For me none come to mind, as I don't mind bitter taste, so I haven't concenrtated on "finding" or "lookinfg for", that particular note while tasting.

    I'd be very curious to know which Bourbons/American whiskies are considered to own a bitter note?

    Does it come in the nose, the palate or the finish?
    I found the idea that bourbon could be bitter rather hard to understand. However, very old bourbon can be astringent/tannic/woody. Maybe that is what was meant.

    Bourbon makes me happy.

    Maker's Mark actually promotes the fact that everything they do is intended to eliminate bitterness from their whiskey. If not-bitter is primarily what you are looking for, Maker's is hard to beat.

    If you really want a sweet one, I'd look at Mitchener's American Whiskey. Anything but bitter.

    I agree with everything you said here. Most good bourbons are not what I would call bitter. Also, you mention Michters American Whiskey. Not only is that not bitter but isn't that the sweetest whiskey you ever had? So sweet it's unusual. I've never had another whiskey that sweet to this day.
