Noah’s Mill Bourbon

I’ve been singing the praises of Bulleit bourbon on the grounds that it out performs most of the bourbons I’ve tried that are double and even triple the price. So I was rather excited to discover a bottle of Bulleit aged 10 years (about $45). Unfortunately it was a big disappointment and certainly was not worth the price. Up against Noah’s Mill it came over as pretty rough and ammonia-like. Noah’s Mill is the best bourbon I’ve tried and out does by a mile even those bourbons double the price (still a very reasonable 60 or so dollars) — so all in all this is THE bourbon to beat — if you can find a bottle! This is the one bourbon I’d pair with a good cigar.
