Wow need to do a tasting at your place.

How many folks preferred OGD and WT101 over the pricey stuff.

Those were used for bacon old fashioneds after the tasting was done. Made some brown sugar simple syrup, stuck a sizzling stick of bacon in to serve. So good!

We had 12 tasters - the popular vote seemed to go to EC18, then Blanton's Gold, RY10 and last was WT Decades. Unless you add in the Bacon Old Fashioneds - then they won in a landslide. ;)

Really nice selection. It's always a joy to see a spread with quality bourbon. Glad you had a good time!

It was a great mix and worked out well that none of them were too high in proof for the group I had. It wouldn't have taken much more than our 105 high mark for people to start shying away. That Gold is really tasty!
