advice finding a bourbon that would fit my palate

Postby Zeno Marx » Wed Jan 22, 2003 1:59 pm

Just to give you an idea of my favorites:
scotch - Lagavulin 16 year old; I adore the smoke/peat and full bodied heaviness. Royal Lachnagar 12 year old; wonderful butter toffee nuances.

irish whiskey - Jameson 1780

bourbon - Maker's Mark; the smooth finish and robust fruitiness

I've suffered two concussions to the back of the head, and they've effected my taste sense. I need robust, heavy flavors. Acidity is less desirable than hints at sweetness. If anyone has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it. I'm open to all suggestions, but I'm primarily looking for a bourbon at the moment. Thank you.

ZM

You could do worse than Baker's Aged 7 years.

Michael Jackson describes it as < fudge, white chocolate > whilst Dave Broom says it's like < baked bananas >

You can check it out in the Tasting Room on this website

Cheers

Zeno, my recommendation would the 16 y.o. A.H. Hirsch. Robust, thick, heavy flavours!

Cheers, Lex

I'd recommend Booker's (big brother to Baker's in the Beam small batch range). It's robust, it's heavy, it's great.

Woodford Reserve is great, but the finish might be a tiny bit dry for someone who likes sweetness.

Thanks everyone. I think I'll give the Baker's and Woodford Reserve shots (no pun intended).

If you can find George T. Stagg, you will love it. Van Winkle 10yo 107 proof and Kentucky Spirit would probably also be good choices.
