What are you drinking right now? - Page 754

post #11296 of 14895
I seldomly drink Bourbon + coke but prefer a Whisky Sour.
My tongue is not as sensitive as yours, but I prefered the EC over MM because it had more character, I have not tried other bourbons.
Which reasonably priced brand would you recommend?
post #11297 of 14895

Yes but EC is aged 12 yo and MM is not. That makes a big difference in the flavor complexity. Also MM is a different bourbon because it is wheat based. 

 

As for the budget bourbons I like Four Roses Yellow Label and Evan Williams. A bit higher in pricing I cannot say I don't like Maker's Mark and I definitely like Four Roses Single Barrel.

As a mixer, the versatility of EJ12 is rather limited, imo.

Why do you think so? I am asking because I have no extensive experience in making cocktails with different bourbons so I wonder...

I just don't think the characteristics of the bourbon work well with many cocktails.

OK, fair enough, I thought that you referred to particular brands of bourbon as better and worse mixers and wanted to understand that.

This truly is a holy grail of whisky! Ardbeg from the 70s!

And if I told you we had two of them to check how different barrels affect aging? :P
