I was overdue for another tasting, and set out for another one.
My group this time was actually a little tricky to put together. I did however manage to scramble producers that I thought were different with one exception.
I found a bottle of Old Forester and thought it would be perfect for this group. I never see that whiskey around here at all. Only thing is pairing it with Woodford meant I was having whiskey made by the same producer (Brown Forman).
This was actually a plus though, I did some research and found online that they supposedly have the same mash bill and yeast content. So trying them side by side was just right. Also I was set to throw in a bottle of Blanton's but I found Elmer T Lee instead which was cheaper. I really like Blanton's but I wasn't ready to fork over a lot of money again for it right now. I also discovered that Elmer and Blanton's are made by the same distiller Buffalo Trace. Super! I was set, I'd throw in my Black Maple which I had around for awhile... and imbibing joy could begin.
I present Bourbon whiskey tasting group #3, the video is below in 2 parts.
The tasted Bourbons were as follows:
- Old Forester
- Woodford Reserve
- Elmer T. Lee
