Nah, those aren't harsh words, of all the bourbons that Buffalo Trace produces ERSB is at the bottom of my list and BT is one notch up.
Something has to be on the bottom.
Well, I like BT precisely because of its singularnes. In other words, to my taste, it boldly represents the house style that is evident in other BT bottlings. I simply don't pick up the mustiness others talk about. Or, perhaps, its precisely that bold defining characteristic, that I like, that so many other folks think of as mustiness?
In any case, Its too bad you don't like it, Oscar. Do you find BT musty, or is it something else?
