So, taste buds getting burned are not a consideration no matter the proof? Science is real. Reasoning is optional. I suppose your buddy can stick with the low octane and suffer no loss of taste sensitivity.That's pretty funny right there! But hey, if that's how ya like it, then I say go for it. I've always hated it when some whiskey snob says you shouldn't add ice, you should drink it neat at room temp etc, etc. I say you do you, I'll do me. It's an individual thing
Be careful with this one depending on year and when they sailed. Can be hit or miss.I've gone through three bottles of Pappy 20, and traded the fourth. I love wheaters and it is very very good, but not worth the price it commands right now. A buddy, who loves wheaters as well turned me on to this bottling of Jeffersons Ocean Special Wheated....we both agree, it's Pappy good.
Kentucky- This small batch bourbon is aged on OCEARCH boats as they travel the seas. The constant movement of the liquid in the barrels ages the whiskey faster because the more of the liquid is in contact with the wood more often. The result is a spirit with rich and complex flavors.www.totalwine.com
The special wheated? I'm almost through my first bottle, and have a second....but guessing they are from the same lot. My buddy who has a much better bourbon palate than me has gone through a case (6) bought in different states as he found it and hasn't noticed any changes. That said, I could see how it could happen depending on the boat, voyage etc.Be careful with this one depending on year and when they sailed. Can be hit or miss.
If you are ever in Ohio you can get Weller for $24 a bottle. It is my everyday cheap pour. Weller antique is only $47 a bottlePretty sure the Weller and Pappy start out as the same mash. The Weller Special Reserve for $60ish is good stuff too, I try to have a bottle on hand.
