Why these two? Thats what I had! This is my first van winkle product, so I will try to give my impressions. Lot B: dense, compact, rich. Tastes of maple, vanilla extract. Nose, delicate but leads you straight to the taste. Finish, about an hour per sip, really, easily the longest finish I have experienced to date and the warming of the alcohol is perfect. excellent bourbon, except I think I miss the rye. Enter the EC12. I have given my impressions of this before, I really like this one to, and for the first time noted the wintergreen everyone talks about. I was thinking it was the taste people were talking about, I experience it more as a mouthfeel(almost reminds me slightly of gin). anybody now how much rye is in EC12? Im trying to get a feel for my rye content preference. Anyways both excellent bourbons( they almost all are!!!). All responses welcomed.
