Last time we tasted Rye whiskey, the “original” US whiskey, with its special flavour profile emphasising pepperiness and fruitiness.
Now we move on to the most famous kind of US whiskey: Bourbon. Instead of Rye, Bourbon is mainly Corn.
In this tasting we sample Bourbon from Koval, and Balcones, and compare them to Rye from Catoctin Creek and Reservoir. In addition we taste Henry McKenna Single Barrel Bottled in Bond which was chosen in March 2019 as “The World’s Best Whiskey” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Only the second time a Bourbon has won this award.
