    Blind taste test

    Last night, I blind taste tested a good portion of my Bourbons (and a couple Tennessee's) that I have open, just to see what the results would be. Here is what I tasted:

    Elijah Craig 18yr
    Buffalo Trace
    Evan Williams SB
    Weller SR
    Gentlemen Jack
    Rittenhouse Rye

    Here is how my top 3 turned out:

    1. Weller SR
    2. Evan Williams SB
    3. Gentlemen Jack

    Very surprised with the #1 finisher. Not surprised with #2 and #3.

    I'm sure a lot of you have done this in the past. Were you surprised, or did it go as expected?

    Re: Blind taste test

    I did a blind taste test of a different sort a few years back. Here are the results. (Note: The reference to spousal abuse was a response to a comment made by the originator of the thread. I regret mentioning such a repugnant subject in an off-handed way.)

    Re: Blind taste test

    I am really new to bourbon and did a "pepsi challenge" with my small collection on Friday night. My wife would pour a shot while I was in the other room. I got everyone right. I tasted:

    Makers Mark
    Basil Hayden
    Wild Turkey Rare Breed

    On Saturday a friend gave me Evan Willams 1997 Single Barrel
    On Sunday my wife got me WL Weller 107 Antique

    It was a good weekend!
