Finally tried Blanton's Kentucky Single Barrel Bourbon...

    I was also a little disappointed with blantons.  don't get me wrong, it's very enjoyable.  It just seemed a little one dimensional to me; very sweet caramel and vanilla with a little bit of spice towards the end.   There was no development as I sipped it.  No complexity.  Very easy drinking though.  This would go great with a cigar, but other than that, I'll pass.

    I also like Makers Mark.  I just found Maker's Mark Private Select and really enjoyed this a lot.  sweet, with a short intense citrus note followed by a very mouthwatering chocolate finish.  each batch is going to be different though.

    I still like scotch better, but I'm thinking about always making sure I have at least one of those bottles around for my bourbon friends!
