Believe it or not, I actually found a 50ml mini of Rare Breed! I didn't know that they made it. The nose is great, though not as appealing as the Kentucky Spirity), I thought I got a whiff or two of butterscotch. Without doubt, it is one of the more complex Bourbons I've tasted. Lots of flavor developments. Of course, the corn prevails, but it's mixed with wood/spice, and a faint lemon zest flutters about. Some of the tones are subtle, and I haven't picked them all out, yet
. It is easy drinking for a barrel-proof (cask strength) type whiskey. The Kentucky Spirit (101 Proof/50.5%) actually seems more spirity to me than the Rare Breed. One thing I noticed on the finish, is an old time tobacco flavor that is darker than the tobacco flavors in KS. I will have to pick up a bottle.
Killerwhale has some great tasting notes. I'd contact him if you are interested in RB.
