Oh, nice! BMH limited does not get a lot of good press here on SF, but it is my go-to bourbon one step up from the well stuff (which is Woodford for me). I always enjoy it neat or in a cocktail that doesn't distort it too much. We have a lot of similar tastes, though I am not a fan of the Karlsson.

This implies that you don't like Old Fashioneds? Hmm. Sazerac? I love a Rum Old Fashioned with a bit of cane syrup and falernum. The best one I ever had was made by Nick Jarrett at Clover Club, where he split the base using Zacapa, Lemonheart 151 and another rum that I don't recall, along with Jerry Thomas bitters. One of my top 5 cocktail experiences was drinking that thing.
