    Talking Side by Side - WT 101 Eagle Rare

    Wild Turkey 101 vs. Eagle Rare Single Barrell

    First of all, I'm new. These are my 3 and 4th bourbons. Had Old Grand Dad. And Buffalo Trace. I wish I didn't drink it all. But that's how much I enjoyed it.

    WT wins. More "heat" upon the tongue. Or should I say once it was in the month, the heat arrived faster. ER seemed late.

    But both don't 'entice' me to drink them like the Buffalo Trace. I wanted a pour every time. My speech is my judge. When the words, "Dang this is good!" constantly flow after enjoying a spirit or beer, then I know I like it.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to give descriptive details of leather, oak, and all that jazz. Perhaps I'll learn. But right now, when my mouth utters those words, I know how much I like it.

    It is all about knowing what you like. I suck at the tasting jargon too- but it sure if fun to try a new bourbon.

    Oh, and I'm with you on how good Buffalo Trace is.

    You need to get your hands on a ER 101... and retest... I think you may find the ER to take that round.

    If you can, get some Weller 10/107... I thik you may fancy that as well.

    Nice thing about Bourbon is that I haven't found any I don't like. I purchased 4 and all 4 are "Very Good" or better. Unlike Scotch and Brandy. I have tasted some Brandy I can't stand. I tasted a Scotch I deemed "Fair".

    You have not tried enough.. go get 200 ml of Yellowstone (the new stuff) - you might not like that one

    In general you are right though, the vast majority are all very drinkable, probably has to do with the nice bourbon rules put into place so long ago...
