If there is a number one in anyting it is very fleeting and to be lost in the game of finding it is to be truly lost. The idea that there is a 'best' bourbon is foolish. But, I hasten to add there are some bourbons that are better than other bourbons. Which ones fit this category are for you to discover.
Mike wrote:But....... the true Bourbon Enthusiast is always looking for that better bourbon, and is relentless in his/her pursuit of that Bourbon. To do so is to be human in the best sense of what it means to be a human being. What rings your bell today, may not ring it tomorrow. If it is your game to find the one bourbon that suits you best, my hat is off to you, but you are not (in my opinion) a Bourbon Enthusiast.
Being a Bourbon Enthusiast is not playing in a game that has an end!
