Thanks for the suggestion. I think these are a long enough smoke, I may have to try several bourbons. I had not thought of Four Rose, but it does sound good.
You're welcome Mike. I tend to agree with Joe Bourbon that a more intense pour is needed with any maduro wraped stick. It seems to me that a fine wheated bourbon might very well get lost in the strength of the smoke. Plus I just like the combo of a good maduro with Four Roses Single Barrel.
But do try a good wheater as a semi-blind compairison. I should think any of the 107 proof Wellers would stand up well enough. Maybe that new uncut/unfiltered William LaRue Weller that I haven't tried yet might be just the ticket! I'd even try that with a Winston!
