I’m not a bourbon guy but could be. I got into a bottle of Blanton’s a couple years back and loved it. On my last overnighter at the range I decided to do a study on Buffalo Trace by the campfire. I used to have something of a palate and could identify the subtle notes of aromas and tastes that the experts found. I totally shat the bed on this one. Apparently on the nose it’s all toffee, caramel and burnt coffee. I swear I got the overwhelming scent of red fruit...probably apple and a hint of smoke. The experts said that only shows up in the finish and only subtly.
Whatever. I had a magical night by the fire, serenaded by coyotes, and polished off about a third of the bottle.
And the next morn I wished I was dead. I suppose I must accept the fact that I am too old to hold manly amounts of liquor.
